This year's guest speaker will be Joyce Brenny, owner of Brenny Transportation and Brenny Specialized in St. Cloud, Minn. Brenny currently serves as the chairwoman of the Minnesota Trucking Association and is the first woman to serve in that capacity. Also, WIT President and CEO, Ellen Voie, will give an update on the association's accomplishments.

The association's board members and sponsors will welcome attendees and their families, and each female driver will receive a goodie bag filled with gifts. They will also be able to visit with corporate sponsors and meet with the driver advisory committee and drivers who hold four-million-mile safe-driving records.

Terry Wooley and Highway Fever will perform before the ceremony, and guests can enjoy chocolate fountains.

Doors open at noon in rooms C201-C205 in the upper level of the south wing. Drivers can register at the show at the WIT booth in the north wing lobby or online at the Salute to Women website.
