On behalf of TruckSafe and its board, I would like to extend an official invitation for you to attend the Australian Trucking Association’s (ATA) annual national conference, Trucking Australia 2018.
I am pleased to announce that His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) will open the event, to be held from the 18th to 20th April at the National Convention Centre, Canberra.
Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack will attend as a keynote speaker.
It has never been a more crucial time for accreditation systems and safety in general to be a topic for discussion. I urge you to join in and help shape our future.
This year’s conference will host a range of workshops including vital information on the new master safety code. This is a must-attend for all business managers and directors. We will also deliver exciting new initiatives such as the FatigueHACK where we put a challenge to the industry in addressing the issue of driver fatigue management.
Good content drives effective conversation and participation from thought leaders. This will be key in driving the agenda of this year’s conference.
At Trucking Australia 2018 you’ll be able to network with industry professionals and catch up with old friends at a range of social events like the Kenworth Legends Lunch and Canberra Showcase Dinner.
I am especially looking forward to the ATA Foundation Sponsors Gala Awards Dinner in which the winner of the TruckSafe John Kelly memorial will be announced. It would be wonderful for you to come along and show your support, as we have several TruckSafe members nominated in other National Trucking Industry Award categories.
Your participation is important to our event and we welcome your contribution and vision to drive our future.
The full program can be viewed here.
I look forward to welcoming you at our event and wish you and your family a safe and happy Easter.
Mrs Karlie Easter
Deputy Chair, TruckSafe
