Thank you for your interest in becoming a TRAG Member. As a member, you will receive email updates and information on items affecting the towing industry. You will also receive our quarterly newsletter “TowTips” and other information.
Along with your paid membership, you will receive our "Cookbooks" on Abandoned and Derelict Vehicles. These comprehensive guides will help you process these vehicles within the guidelines of state law and help you keep your storage lot clear.
Other benefits of becoming a TRAG Member is access to affinity programs. One such program is through NEXGEN, a credit card processing company, who offers TRAG members’ great rates on credit card processing. We have also partnered with online auction services for abandoned vehicles at a great rate.
TRAG works hard to solve issues that face our industry on local, state, and national levels. TRAG has been instrumental in adopting and changing the state laws that govern our industry. TRAG and our registered lobbyist, The Thrash Group, have been very successful in recent years both preventing destructive legislation and adopting positive legislation for the towers in Georgia.
But the cost for this success has been substantial. And we ask for your support so that we may continue our work at the “Gold Dome” and with other state agencies concerning towing industry issues.
TRAG has also works with local law enforcement in developing criteria for rotation lists, government contracts, and training requirements for contract towing companies. TRAG representatives attend DOT meetings to address our members’ concerns, and TRAG is in the forefront of the TRIP (Towing & Recovery Incentive Program) and CHAMP programs, continually working with the various State agencies to improve and administer those programs in the metro Atlanta area and across the state.
As President of the Towing & Recovery Association of Georgia, I would like to encourage you to join TRAG. As a member, you will have the opportunity to meet others in the industry with which you can exchange insight and ideas, as well as develop a network of industry contacts across the state. Thanks to the support we receive from companies like you, we can continue to work to improve our industry and chosen profession.
Phil Howard, President
Towing & Recovery Association of Georgia
