He will also discuss best practices and frequently asked questions regarding coaching driver, how to, what to expect from drivers, how managed vs non-managed solutions work, the importance of not only coaching risk events but giving driver kudos on what they did correctly.  He will explain how exoneration is a big part of what these systems can do as well as point out the cost savings that knowing the outcome first when you are at fault is to your benefit (ie the faster to settle the less it will cost you).

    Call on Washington
    September 17-19, 2019

    NCTA's Call on Washington program is our opportunity to meet directly with Members of Congress, key congressional staff, federal regulators, fellow industry leaders and ATA staff to discuss legislation and regulations affecting the trucking industry. 

    Why should I go?

    No one knows our industry like we do! Members of Congress need to hear first-hand from business owners and executives about our concerns. 


    Why does it cost?

    Participants pay their own travel and hotel costs and meals.


    What is involved in the Congressional visits?

    We arrange all the appointments, provide briefing materials and hold a briefing session at American Trucking Association before we meet with Members of Congress and staff. We make it easy to get to and from Capitol Hill and other venues and we try to make the most efficient use of your time. 

    Hotel Accommodations:

    The Alexandrian, Autograph Collection

    Alexandria, VA
