Since 1933, trucking executives across the country have joined the American Trucking Associations to represent our industry to lawmakers and regulators, as well as to enhance their companies’ efficiency and profitability.
LEAD ATA is a one-year program, created to engage the trucking industry’s best and brightest and prepare them to become our leaders of tomorrow. Participants will gain real-world experience and in-depth industry insights not available through any other program. By selecting a diverse group of candidates, this program will represent the many different segments, regions, and fleet sizes that make up our industry.
This select group will attend four classes, throughout the year, designed to highlight the many facets of ATA and learn how to more effectively utilize the tools we make available in order to better serve themselves and the companies they represent. As part of their journey, participants will gain a better understanding of the regulatory and legislative process, how it directly affects their business, and what role ATA plays in that process on their behalf. These emerging trucking executives will develop a vast network of industry peers, enhanced leadership and management skills, and a thorough understanding of the ATA and the industry it represents. Graduates of LEAD ATA will possess all of the tools necessary to lead their companies and our industry into the future!
