The Illinois Trucking Association completed its 2016 annual meeting this week in Bloomington, IL. With over 200 attendees it was certainly one of our most successful meetings ever! Guest speakers included ATA Economist Rod Suarez, ATRI President & COO Rebecca Brewster, nationally known speaker Dan Baker and ATA President & CEO Chris Spear delivered an inspiring keynote.
The ITA board of directors also met on Tuesday to discuss legislation that we have coming our way this year, and how we would respond. It was decided that the ITA would support a speed limit mandate set at 70 mph, which is the currently the top speed limit on Illinois roads. ATA President & CEO Chris Spear has committed to getting "wins on the board" this year for our industry.
We would like to thank our many sponsors and exhibitors for their support and commitment to trucking! We know it's difficult to leave the office for 3 straight days and we hope you found value in the information we provided. If you have any suggestions or ideas for next year, please share them with us! We look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
