2017 Spring Conference


2017 Spring Conference
May 10-12, 2017
Hyatt Centric New Orleans

The 2017 Spring Conference in New Orleans was a great success. CVTA would like to thank all the speakers, especially FMCSA's Larry Minor, for joining us and providing conference attendees with valuable information about the status of issues important to the commercial driver training and trucking industries. In addition, all speakers' presentations were highly thought-provoking and educational. We would like to thank our exhibitors and sponsors, whose support makes it possible for us to continue presenting high-caliber events for CVTA members. 

By Lou Spoonhour, Chairman, Nominating Committee

As you may know, CVTA's Board of Directors holds elections at its spring conference. CVTA's Board of Directors is a "staggered" board, which means certain seats are up for election every year. This year, one School Member and a special election for two Motor Carrier positions were up for election and I am proud to say that we have elected a group of exceptional Directors.

I would like to take a moment to thank all of those nominees who put themselves forward for consideration. This year's roster contained exceptional candidates.  I want to personally thank them all.  Although they were not elected, the quality, character, and dedication shown by each candidate is a testament to our association's membership. We certainly hope that each of these candidates will consider running again.

Here are the results for the newly elected Board members, whose term will begin this October.

School Member:

Nadia Speney, PIA Jump Start Program  

The winners of the Special election for Motor Carrier Members begin serving their terms immediately will serve until Fall 2018.  

Motor Carrier Member:

Marilyn Surber, Melton Truck Lines

Paul Rasmussen, Paschall Truck Lines

Congratulations to all the winners and we look forward to having you as members of the Board of Directors.
