TCA IN TEXT
The official organization name is the Tilt-Up Concrete Association. "TCA" is the official acronym. Use the complete name on any first reference. Subsequent references in copy may use TCA.
“Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast tilt-up construction, a system in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. TCA is the international nonprofit trade association for the global tilt-up industry. Combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment, the industry is rapidly expanding. The mission of the TCA is to expand and improve the use of tilt-up as the preferred building system by providing education and resources that enhance quality and performance.”
The TCA Logo is a powerful marketing tool and a valuable asset of the members of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association. Federal law governs use of the TCA Logo.
The Promotions Committee of the TCA authorizes use of the TCA Logo. The TCA Logo is available for use by members with active standing to promote their membership with TCA. Members may download the logo here or obtain the mark by contacting the TCA: firstname.lastname@example.org
TCA will provide logo artwork files. Only artwork files provided by TCA may be used. Images captured from web sites, publications, and other sources may not be used. Alterations to and variations of the TCA Logo are prohibited. Three approved versions of the logo are available for download (black, white and color). The height and width of the logo must be constrained to its original proportions. The mark is intended to stand alone and should not be integrated into other logos.
But for special instances, approved on a case-by-case basis by the TCA Promotions Committee, only TCA member organizations in good standing may use the logo. The privilege to use the TCA Logo is immediately terminated upon the lapse or termination of an organization’s membership. The TCA logo may be used in connection with the member’s business and marketing materials including, but not limited to: stationery, letterhead, business cards, print ads, brochures, flyers, tradeshow exhibit materials, and signage. The logo may be placed on the member’s web site as a link to www.tilt-up.org to identify the company as a TCA member. It may not be used to link to other pages on web sites belonging to TCA, the member, or any other third party.
TCA does not review, certify, or endorse products. As such, the TCA Logo may not be used to indicate any kind of endorsement by TCA of any product or service, to indicate that any official status for any product or service has been conferred by, or is otherwise associated with TCA, or to show any kind of relationship with TCA other than to signify the company is a TCA member.
