CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) is hosting its annual conference Apr. 30 at the Rimrock Hotel in Banff.

After lunch, the association’s Annual General Meeting will be held, which will be followed by a business session on insurance.

The following morning will kick off with a Continental breakfast followed by a presentation by Human Resources Development Canada, which will cover overtime pay, general holiday pay and the differences between travel time versus time worked.
