TCI News Update


Transportation Clubs International

Caci Case TCI PresidentTIME IS ALMOST UP TO GET REGISTERED FOR CONFERENCE! The TCI Annual Symposium scheduled for September 13th - 15th 2012 is only 2 weeks away!


I have seen many reservations come through already and know of many more booking this week. We only reserved a limited amount of rooms and once the block is full, you will have to find your own hotel arrangements at whatever cost you can find. We have a deal with the hotel for $124/night but you must call 877-450-7711 and mention TCI to get this rate. We are staying at the very groovy Hotelumiere Casino right in St. Louis and the speaker lineup looks amazing. I have personally attended several events with the St. Louis club and their board of directors so I can assure you that this will be a conference you do not want to miss!
