Update March 27, 2020
Due to the state of Florida recently extending its emergency order for the hospitality industry through May 9, the Hilton Sandestin will be unable to host the Alabama Trucking Association’s Convention on April 23-25.
Postponing the Convention wasn’t a decision our leaders took lightly, and we are weighing several possible scenarios for a reschedule. However, with the uncertainty of the length and scope of the ongoing health crisis caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, we are unable to determine when, or even if, we can reschedule the event this year.
We have multiple ideas on how to move forward either with a new date, a condensed version of the Convention, or perhaps holding it in conjunction with another ATA event later in the year. For now, all we can do is wait for this crisis to pass and reveal an appropriate proposal in due time.
If you made hotel reservations either by phone, online or through the HiltonLink or the Honors apps, please cancel them through those channels.
For now, our team is focused on responding to our members’ needs during this crisis and promoting the courageous work of Alabama trucking businesses and their employees throughout this crisis.
Thank you for your continued support and patience.
Keep calm and keep trucking.
