Daniel R. McBride
TCH President, 2012 - 2013
Welcome to Houston’s Hub for Intermodal Transportation,
At the Transportation Club of Houston (TCH), we speak two different languages; we refer to the first as Logistics and the second as Texan. For those not familiar with Logistics, it is all about making the coordination of the delivery of just about anything under the sun look easy. For those not familiar with Texan, I guess we will cut you a little slack.
Our club truly is multi-modal and represents an impressive cross-section of shippers, carriers, and educators. Furthermore, we are committed to the next generation of transportation. It is no secret that we are truly passionate about tomorrow’s transportation leaders. In fact, TCH offers scholarships to student candidates who are interested in studying transportation and logistics. Furthermore our club recognizes that Houston has a growing population of veterans that have great skills which could lend themselves to our industry. Therefore we encourage these veterans to consider joining our organization at a special discount.
The first step to getting to know our club is to get involved. This year we have an extensive lineup of events including; monthly luncheons as part of our “Lunch and Logistics” series, Golf tournaments (spring and fall), Networking Happy Hour Events, Annual Presidents Dinner, Ship Channel Tour, Sporting Events and topped off by our Annual Holiday Party.
Please see our events Calendar.
2013 is going to be a great year!! Can you believe this is our club's 98th year of existence? That makes TCH one of Houston’s first clubs ever. We are proud of the rich heritage built by those who made the Houston transportation industry what it is today.
On behalf of our more than 300 members, we hope you will consider joining “the movers and shakers” that make up the Transportation Club of Houston.
-- Daniel R. McBride, TCH President
