July Fundraiser

Usually I hold my twice-a-year fundraising in November and June. Last month was a busy one with the wedding of one of my daughters so I postponed it until July. As in the past, I appreciate whatever support you can provide for the TCN. There are a number of options and not all of them involve money.

The easiest one is just letting others interested in transportation communications know about the TCN and invite them to subscribe. All they have to do is send me an email and I'll add them to the list. You can also financially support the TCN by making a contribution (please see below for details), buying an ad or hiring me to do voice work. I'll give details on those in the days ahead. As always, thank you!
