All About ATA's Virtual Mid-Year Management Session 

All American Trucking Associations members are encouraged to attend our 2020 Virtual Mid-Year Management Session May 13-15 and 18-19 and participate in our many policy committee meetings, including our Executive Committee and Board of Directors meetings. As we advocate for you through this crisis, it is important to continue to discuss the many issues and obstacles that affect not only your business, but your workforce as well. We continue to fight for our strategic priorities, including infrastructure funding, workforce development and tort reform. It is vital to have our membership engaged in our policies and the strategic direction we are moving. ATA Chairman Randy Guillot shares a few thoughts in the video on the right.

Please review the schedule and register for this complimentary virtual event.

We also look forward to seeing everyone this fall at our Management Conference & Exhibition, scheduled for October 24-27 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
