ITPA Launches New Website

In an effort to create compelling content for our members, the ITPA launches a new website. The logo was used as a guide which made for a clean design. The navigation was cleaned up and more picture content was added throughout the site. 

A few things to note:
1. The totally redesigned website is mobile friendly. It will automatically 
re-size for your phone, tablet, or desktop.
2. Meeting registrations can be done through the members' "Login" area. It uses your saved member contact information, saving you time on form entry.   
3. When registering, you're able to sign up for meeting text notifications (SMS). If anything changes during the convention, the ITPA can send a notification to all subscribed attendees.

Moving forward, the ITPA will be adding a "Resources Page" which will contain all things "HD truck parts". This will include manufacturer links, industry events, and other resources. Visit today.
We Want Your Involvement! 

The ITPA board is working hard to make the association better; not only for our membership but for the industry. Making things better includes you. We want your feedback.

Some of the things the ITPA is working on.
1. The Bylaw Committee will be evaluating the application and acceptance process for potential members. They will also be reviewing all the bylaws.  
2. Much of our interaction with the association is made through ITPA's website. Therefore, we will be adding more content to make it a one-stop shop for all things truck parts. This is one of the ways we want to add value to your ITPA membership.
3. Our meetings are another large part of the association's value to its' members. The Board and the Convention Committee work hard to make sure we have the best venue, speakers, and entertainment. The upcoming Portland Convention will profile this renewed commitment. 

The people in the ITPA Board and Committees are volunteers who care about our industry. What about you? Do you want to give back to the industry? You can do that by volunteering or by sharing your thoughts on improvement. You can call the ITPA office at 866-346-5692 or get in touch with our board members. Contact info is here
