MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

JACE THOMPSON

President

On behalf of our 200+ members, welcome to the Transportation Club of Seattle.  The Transportation Club of Seattle is celebrating it’s 110th anniversary this year! We have a rich and diverse history that we are going to be highlighting at our meetings and events this year. As always, we have a robust schedule of philanthropic and networking opportunities planned for you this year.

When I joined the TCS I was new to Seattle and new to my job.  I was hooked after the first meeting where I met industry contacts and customers. I immediately found a home at the club and I have been rewarded multiple times over for my volunteer hours and contributions.  I am confident the club will provide you the same experience.


As our industry requires us to become more reliable, faster, and efficient, the TCS is prepared to help our members by providing educational and cutting-edge speakers, multifaceted networking and advertising opportunities, and exciting and fun philanthropic events.  Check out the Events page on our website to see the impressive guest speaker line-up this year.  These monthly meetings provide excellent networking opportunities with industry leading professionals. We host a sell-out summer golf tournament to raise money for scholarships and collect backpacks for students who need a new backpack to start school.  In early December, we host our famous Holiday Party to raise money for the Salvation Army.  Last year this event alone raised over $30,000 for the Salvation Army!  Thank you to all who attended and especially to those who planned the event! Finally, we’re thrilled to announce that we are going to be hosting a new event in August of this year to commemorate our 110th anniversary and to have a little fun during the best month in Seattle! 

I hope you can see my excitement for the club because of the positive impact it has on our members, industry, and community.  We’d love to see you become more involved in the club.  If you’d like to join a committee, please reach out to the committee chair.  We are an innovative and dynamic club that is always looking for new ideas and fresh perspectives.

Thank you to the dedicated board of directors whom it is a pleasure to serve with and to our wonderful members.  You all are what makes this club great.

Sincerely,

Jace Thompson

President
Transportation Club of Seattle
