The event will be held on March 27, 2010, at the Mid-American Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.

"Anne is one of our most visible women in the trucking industry," said Ellen Voie, president and CEO of Women In Trucking. "We are thrilled to have her address our members and help us honor these female professional drivers who thrive in a male dominated environment."

"As more women pursue careers behind the wheel, they continue to break barriers and reinforce the fundamental standards of motor carrier safety - professionalism, safe driving skills and work-life balance," said Ferro. "This important event shines a well-deserved spotlight on the vital contributions that women in trucking make everyday to our communities and our nation."

Any female professional driver or member of Women In Trucking is welcome to attend. They will receive a free t-shirt to wear for a photo that will be taken in an effort to achieve a world record for the largest gathering of female drivers. In addition to Ferro's address, there will be entertainment and refreshments. Drivers will be recognized for safety achievements as well.
