ATA Renames, Reimagines Annual May Meeting

Mar 14, 2018

Arlington, Virginia – Today, the American Trucking Associations announced it was rebranding its annual May Leadership Meeting and reinventing the event to be a more inclusive experience on the trucking industry calendar beginning this May with the new Mid-Year Management Session.

“An important part of being a member of ATA is being involved in the association and coming together as an organization to get important advocacy updates, exchange information and network with customers and colleagues,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “Our new Mid-Year Management Session will offer ATA members the opportunity to do all of these things and more.”

The new Mid-Year Management Session will be more inclusive – similar to ATA’s signature event the ATA Management Conference and Exhibition – and show value to a wider cross-section of ATA members than the ATA Leadership Meeting it replaces.

“We believe the Mid-Year Management Session to be a must-attend event for executives at all levels interested in the future of ATA and the trucking industry,” Spear said. “We are excited to share what will be a program and agenda filled with knowledgeable speakers with deep expertise in our industry.”

This year’s Mid-Year Management Session will be held May 20-23 at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort in Marco Island, Florida.
