- Transportation Communications NewsletterTuesday, November 1, 2011 – ISSN 1529-1057November TCN Fund-Raising DriveTwice a year, I hold a month-long fund-raising effort to support the TCN. I want to first say that no one should feel pressure to donate to the TCN. For those who do choose to donate, I very much appreciate the support! Near the bottom of the newsletter you'll find information on how you can contribute. In addition to monetary gifts, there are other ways you can support the TCN. These include buying ad space in the TCN, utilizing my transportation voiceover services or simply letting others in the field know about the TCN so they too can subscribe. Throughout November I'll provide more details on how you can support the TCN. Thank you!
