ST. JOHN’S, Nfld. – Get out your lobster bibs – it’s just weeks before the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association’s general meeting and convention gets underway. Held each year in one of the four Atlantic provinces, the event brings together hundreds of leading figures in the Atlantic Canadian trucking industry for meetings, discussions and networking. This year’s event will be held at the Fairmont in St. John’s, Nfld. Oct. 24-27.
“This year’s AGM in Newfoundland once again promises to be both a fun event and one with just the right amount of substance and style as can be expected when hosted by the great members and great people of Newfoundland,” said Peter Nelson, executive director of the APTA.
New executive officers and board members are elected every two years for the APTA and the councils of Safety and Associated Trades. As well, the event features discussions on annual reports, topics of interest, issues and suggestions for the future. The central focus this year will be to approve the new Governance structure for the APTA board of directors and committees of the board, which was first discussed in details at the 2006 conference in Halifax, N.S.
Nelson promises that seminar speakers will excite and engage attendees with new ways to attract and retain customers. The convention will also feature its patented lobster dinner as well as other entertainment.
