Annual Membership Conference

January 19 – 22, 2018 Monterey Plaza Hotel, Monterey, CA
"THE HEART OF TRUCKING" - Our 2018 Annual Membership Conference at the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa, will be held in one of California’s most beautiful settings. We will be mixing a great deal of business with a lot of “trucker style” celebration as we focus on the people that make our industry so special. Our theme this year is all about the people and telling our story - The Heart of Trucking – and what a wonderful story we have to tell! This year’s conference will be held from January 19 – 22, 2018 and you won’t want to miss a moment as we have packed in an amazing line-up of speakers, business sessions, Board of Directors and policy meetings, parties and fun! Speaking of fun, we have interactive social media activities lined up so make sure to freshen up on your #hashtags, @tagging and selfie skills.
