A Message from the President of TCA:

The Officers and Directors of the TCA have undertaken the task of providing new and better member benefits without increasing member dues.  We have just signed an agreement with the Nationwide Insurance Company to provide Auto, Home, Powersports, and Pet coverage at special rates for TCA members.  Nationwide approached the TCA and offered this program which the Officers and Board of Directors viewed as a great benefit to the membership.   Just to be clear, this program with Nationwide does not cover the Collection Insurance Program we have with the J. A. Bash Company.

Every TCA member who uses an automobile is faced with certain responsibilities of ownership.  They include state license plates, smog checks, insurance, etc.  The Auto Insurance that Nationwide is offering will be priced at special rates for TCA Members and the members will have the ability to bundle policies for all insurance needs with member savings.

Nationwide will be distributing information to the membership in the near future in the Headquarters News, separate mailings, and on the TCA internet publications.  In addition, they will have a presence at the York meets and at the TCA National Convention in Houston.
