The American Trucking Associations announced Monday the launch of LEAD ATA, a program created to engage young trucking executives and groom them to be the industry’s next great generation of leaders.
“In the 80 years since ATA was founded, we have always relied on industry leaders to be our spokesmen and our examples of what trucking means to the country,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves . “LEAD ATA will help us nurture and cultivate our next generation of leaders and ensure that the legacy those giants have left us is entrusted to sure, steady hands.”
The LEAD ATA program, sponsored by PeopleNet, will provide educational opportunities designed to highlight how the regulatory and legislative process affects the trucking industry and the important role ATA plays in shaping both, as well as demonstrating the tools available to industry executives through ATA.
Each year, a new class will be accepted into LEAD ATA to cultivate the federation’s future ATA leaders.
