Search Underway for New Class of America’s Road Team Captains
American Trucking Associations has opened the nominating process for professional truck drivers to serve on the 2019-2020 America’s Road Team. America’s Road Team, a group of highly-accomplished professional truck drivers, promotes the trucking industry by educating the general public, media, and elected officials about the industry’s strong safety record and importance to the economy.
Every two years, the trucking industry welcomes a new group of Captains to join the prestigious ranks of America’s Road Team and serve as the industry’s foremost ambassadors. America’s Road Team Captains become the face of the trucking industry, attending key events alongside elected officials, appearing on national media broadcasts and championing the industry at schools and community events in every state. The professional drivers, all of whom have millions of accident-free miles, take a few days away from their companies each month to meet with the motoring public, students, transportation officials and public policymakers to perform truck safety demonstrations and explain the sustainable role that trucking plays in the nation’s economy.
ATA members are invited to nominate professional truck drivers who exhibit strong interpersonal skills, have impressive safety records, and demonstrate a positive attitude toward the industry and their careers as professional truck drivers.
To nominate a professional truck driver for America’s Road Team, please carefully read the eligibility requirements and fill out the nomination form found at americasroadteam.com. Finalists will be announced October 15, with the final selection taking place January 27-30, 2019 in Arlington, Virginia.
