Network

TDC fosters community,
community advances industry.

The TDC user networks form innovative collaborations between business, academia and individuals, representing diverse populations, and utilizing local partnerships and associations to advance the transportation, education and construction industries.

TDC has three networking approaches:

  • Small Business Fairs: TDC hosts and participates in periodic business fairs. These sessions take the form of workshops and seminars that engage HUBS and M/W/D/SBE enterprises in addressing and overcoming issues that hinder their full participation in industry projects. Topical issues may cover certifications, insurance/bonding, leveraging partnerships, leveraging banking and financial resources, and others. These fairs may feature informational and guidance sessions from industry representatives, government agencies, finance, and insurance experts.
  • Networking Sessions: TDC hosts and participates in frequent networking events. These mostly half-day events serve to bring small, medium, and large businesses together for lively interactions. The sessions allow them to learn from each other and create opportunities for partnerships and joint pursuit of projects, utilizing their diverse strength and specialties.
  • Career Access Events: TDC hosts and participates regularly in Job Fairs and Employment Preparation and Resource Fairs.

Job Fairs – Employer led events. TDC participates on behalf of our business users who employ our innovative TDC Recruitment Program. Often those TDC Partners choose to participate independently as well, to augment their respective workforce and recruit for immediate fill positions. Together attendees are offered diverse employment opportunity.

Employment Preparation and Resource Fairs (EPARFs) – Community-Based Organization and Academia led events. The purpose of this innovative and unique approach to work readiness is to deliberately connect Individual Users to specialized resources they may need in order to qualify for or retain employment or to access career advancement opportunities.

TDC maintains data on these events and the TDC Business User Network can access such information for the purpose of business interests or collaboration on projects.
