Alabama Trucking unveils exentsive 2024 events and meeting calendar

The Alabama Trucking Association and its Safety & Maintenance Management Council are proud to announce the release of their 2024 events and meeting calendar. Packed with engaging and informative meetings, events and special gatherings, the calendar is a testament to the Association’s continued commitment to fostering industry excellence, while promoting safety and fellowship within Alabama’s trucking community.

One of the year’s marquee events is the 2024 Alabama Trucking Convention, set to take place May 2-5, 2024, at the stately Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Ala. Our Annual Convention is a hub of innovation, networking, and knowledge-sharing, bringing together key players and stakeholders in the trucking industry and political area to discuss emerging trends, challenges and opportunities.

March brings our popular SMMC Fleet Safety Awards, recognizing and celebrating outstanding achievements in safety practices. This event underscores our industry’s dedication to promoting a culture of safety and excellence within the trucking community. Awards are given to the safest fleet in several categories, plus there are individual awards such as the Alabama Professional Driver of the Year.

June marks the annual Alabama Truck Driving Championships, where skilled and dedicated truck drivers from across the state showcase their prowess and compete for top honors. This event not only highlights the exceptional talent within the industry but also serves as a platform to underscore the importance of safety on the roads.

In September, gear up for the Alabama Trucking Golf Classic – a fusion of camaraderie and friendly competition set against the picturesque backdrop of the crown jewel of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail – the Capitol Hill Course in Prattville. This event exclusively raises funds for the industry’s political action committee, TRUK PAC. It is designed to provide a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for networking while supporting a strategic cause for the improvement and well-being of Alabama’s trucking sector.

In addition to these standout events, the ATA’s calendar is punctuated with regular safety meetings and educational programs throughout the year. These initiatives are tailored to equip fleet owners and managers with the latest industry insights and best practices, ensuring that participants can elevate their operations to new heights.

The Alabama Trucking Association invites all industry stakeholders, members, and enthusiasts to participate in these events, contributing to the continued success and advancement of the Alabama trucking landscape. Stay tuned for a year filled with learning, collaboration, and celebration as the ATA leads the charge in shaping the future of trucking in Alabama.
