“The TTCI Research Advisory Board’s mission is to provide feedback to TTCI on the AAR’s Strategic Research program and to provide advice on how TTCI can best serve the AAR’s Railroad Affiliate Members and Associate Members,” AAR said. “Looking ahead, the annual nominating period for Associate Member Representatives on AAR Committees will begin in November. More information will be sent to Gold Associate Members in advance of the official opening of nominations.”
