I’ve always known that members of the towing and recovery industry are generous and giving when asked to support a great cause, and that was evident in the following email I received from a special tow lady.

“I am like many women in this industry. I was not raised in it, but married into it. As we all know, this is not just a job or a career, it is a lifestyle. So, I jumped in the deep water feet-first and began an adventure in waters that I had never encountered before.


Now, seven years later, I have made new friendships, mentors and relationships that I would have never had the opportunity to engage in. A few more gray hairs (thank goodness for a great hair stylist) but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.


“New to the towing lifestyle, the first time I attended the Florida Tow Show I decided to attend the women’s luncheon. (If you haven’t gone before, you need to). I decided that there were some things I wanted to take back to our state.


Having been in it for some time, the level of professionalism and accomplishments of these women was unbelievable. It was great to have the opportunity to pick their brains and listen to the ideas they had — and discover what I could take back, and learn from. So that is what I did.


“I assisted in the silent auction at a tow show this past May. The money raised was split between the International Towing Museum, the Women of the Towing and Recovery of Association (WTRAA) Scholarship Fund and two state associations.


I enjoyed doing that so much that I decided to incorporate the silent auction into my own state association’s tow show.


The money raised was split between the WTRAA Scholarship Fund and my state association.”




Her final thought says it all: “I am just one person, like we all are, but if we all just took a little time to do just one thing, what a difference it can make.”

I will say we have never before had as many Women of Towing involved in the message board as we do now. They are a TowForce themselves and I am glad to see so many now joining the WTRAA. If your a Women in the Towing & Recovery Industry and you would like more information on being a part of this Women's Association please add your response here to learn more. If your already a part of WTRAA please introduce yourself to those Women that may not have all the information about what WTRAA is and what the association does.

Mom, doesn't get on Social Media other then to maybe follow family on Facebook. That's only when she gets a call to look at it. If there were more women posting in here I might be able to get her to get an account and log in.


Who are the women in the group or is it a network...
