Gary-StrubeFrom the Desk of the Chairman

Dear CVTA Members,

I want to take time to thank everyone for attending what turned out to be a great spring conference in Puerto Rico. Now that we are back home and focused on executing on the learnings from all the great sessions, conversations and meetings, I wanted to provide you with a quick recap of the conference and get us calibrated for how we move forward.

Our 'Round Table' event was, once again, a huge success. Thanks to so many of you for attending and offering your input.  There were many positive comments about how well everyone participated.

We were lucky to have the great speakers who took the time to join us and made the conference entertaining as well as informative.  Our special thanks to Kevin Lewis for the update on the new CDL regulations, Brittany Sakata and Don Hudson for going over new and emerging legal issues that will affect so much of what we do. A big thanks to Dr. Ron Knipling, Bill Livingood, and Drew Daly, who added insights into training safety, personal security, and recruitment and retention. They were all excellent presenters. Last, but certainly not least, we always appreciate hearing from our ATA friends Bob Costello and Dave Osiecki.
As the year moves forward, we've begun planning our fall conference, which will be held at the Venetian in Las Vegas on October 12-14. Our conference committee is in the process of accepting session topics and I encourage all to submit topics. It's going to be another great conference and I look forward to seeing all of you there!

Gary Strube
Chairman, CVTA
