June 22-23 is coming soon and we are so excited. The program is still with the printer (sorry folks), but we thought we would give you a sneak peak at what’s on offer over the next few weeks.
Very exciting for us is our International Speaker – Ellen Voie. She is the President/CEO of Women in Trucking USA. Ellen’s session is called “International Perspective” – Trucking in the USA is different to Australia – or is it? She will be talking about the driving task and her organisation that represents these drivers.
Women in Trucking was established to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry. Their membership is not limited to women though, 16% of their membership is men who support the mission.
They have just held their 2012 Salute to Women Behind the Wheel. Here is a picture taken at their “Salute”
