TILT to hold Work Day on January 13, 2021

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA

As a member of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association, you are encouraged to nominate high-potential leaders from your organization to participate in an upcoming onboarding and work event hosted by TILT (Tilt-Up Industry Leaders of Tomorrow). The virtual event, planned for January 13, 2021, aims to connect young professionals interested in TILT in a setting where they can quickly get oriented and get to work.

TILT’s Founding and Growth

In 2018, the TCA’s board of directors established a young professionals collaborative called TILT. The primary goals behind founding this group were to provide access to TCA’s cross-disciplinary resources and offer support to the industry’s future leaders by offering self-initiating programs that examine today’s design and construction challenges. A total of 39 individuals were selected to participate in a kick-off event in Las Vegas on January 22, 2019, during World of Concrete. At that event, participants were charged with formulating their mission, programming, and structure through a series of exercises designed by a professional facilitator and created with the objectives and policies set forth by TCA’s board of directors.

Since TILT’s founding just two years ago, the group has had a tremendous impact on TCA’s programming and have advised the board of directors on major structural issues. Current initiatives include the formation of a mentorship program, a tilt-up details study, technical hotline restructuring, social media programing, and more.

The Value of Meetings

Through its formation and development, TILT thrived on in-person meetings, and the importance of face-to-face interaction was deemed an essential tool for success. To that end, the TCA invested tens of thousands of dollars over the last two years on in-person events and activities for the group. Because the coronavirus pandemic interrupted the group’s ability to meet in person, a virtual event will have to suffice for now.

TILT leaders agreed on the importance of planning ahead for a day that would be dedicated to this work. They felt their employers could better support a single day of professional development rather than sporadic time away from regular work. This also allows for more efficiency as members are not being asked to fit 30-minute Categories of Engagement (COE) meetings in between high-priority, work-related tasks, causing an inevitable divide in attention. This approach also affords TILT members the ability to keep a good share of their volunteer work from seeping into their time with family, friends, and interests that are not related to work or the TCA.

TILT’s January Event

The January 13 work-day event will open with a panel discussion led by TILT’s leadership group. This will be followed by short introductions to the various COE that structure the group’s foci. New TILT members will be invited to select initiatives that align with their skills and interests, and then they’ll get to work.
