Alabama Trucking Board meets to plan upcoming year

The Alabama Trucking Association Board of Directors met in Montgomery on Tuesday, Jan. 31st, to handle the regular business of the Association, plan for upcoming events and initiatives, and discuss strategies, tactics, and solutions for issues that will affect our ability to serve the state’s and nation’s economy.

Among the featured guests was Speaker of the Alabama House of Representatives The Honorable Nathaniel Ledbetter and Business Council of Alabama President & CEO Helena Duncan, who recently took over as head of BCA with over 30 years of experience in the financial industry, primarily at the executive management level.

Markstien‘s Chris Hoke and Cassie McCay gave an update on our ongoing Real Faces of Alabama Trucking workforce marketing campaign, which moves to a more statewide scope soon.

Due to ongoing construction at the ATA headquarters, the meeting was held at the Alabama Realtors building near the State Capitol building. Realtors’ CEO Jeremy Walker stopped in to welcome the groups and provided a summary of the current political climate and how it relates to legal reform. ATA CEO Mark Colson followed up with a summary of what’s to come from ATA with regard to training and services for lawsuit abuse and how it affects trucking operations.

Special thanks to the entire team at Realtors.
