The American Trucking Associations announced it has launched Lead ATA, a new program created to engage young trucking executives and groom them to be the industry's next generation of leaders.
The Lead ATA program, sponsored by PeopleNet, will provide exclusive educational opportunities designed to highlight how the regulatory and legislative process affects the trucking industry and the important role ATA plays in shaping both, as well as demonstrating the many tools available to industry executives through ATA. Each year, a new class will be accepted into Lead ATA to cultivate the federation's future ATA leaders.
To apply to be a part of Lead ATA, please visit www.trucking.org, or follow Lead ATA on Twitter at www.twitter.com/lead_ata or Facebook at www.facebook.com/LeadATA or for more information email [email protected]
We spoke at length with Lane Kidd, managing director of the Washington, D.C.-based Alliance for Driver Safety & Security (a.k.a. the Trucking Alliance) about which issues the carrier-driven and safety-focused lobbying group is most engaged with this year.
