Our Annual Christmas Celebration and election of officers for the Birmingham, Gulf Coast, and Wiregrass Chapters of the Safety and Maintenance Management Council will be held Monday, December 14, 2015 at the Pelham Civic Complex, 500 Amphitheater Rd, Pelham, AL 35124.  Social hour begins at 5:30 pm followed by dinner and the program.

Our guest speaker is Tajuan McCarty, founder of The Wellhouse, a nonprofit, faith-based organization located in Birmingham, Ala. dedicated to rescuing women from sexual exploitation and human trafficking. At 15-years-old, Ms. McCarty ran away from home and was sexually exploited by an older man who became her "boyfriend-turned-pimp".  For several years, she was manipulated and forced to do things no one, especially a teenage, should ever endure.

Her story has been told by national publications and numerous national and local television news programs.  She was recognized as one of "The Top 20 Women Who Make a Difference in Birmingham" by The Birmingham News for her efforts to fight human trafficking.

Earlier this year, the Alabama Trucking Association became a major sponsor and supporter of the fight to end human trafficking through a similar group, Truckers Against Trafficking, a group that seeks to enlist the trucking fleets and their drivers to recognize and report illegal human trafficking activity they may see while working.  Ms. McCarty's inspiring story of redemption dovetails with our Association's own recent involvement with TAT.  She is living proof that the results of our efforts can really make a difference.

As you register please consider giving to the benevolent fund.  This year's funds will be given to The Wellhouse.
