CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — The Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association is going to be hosting its 54th annual convention at the Delta Prince Edward from Oct. 28 to Oct. 30.

This year’s bill will see two packed full days including a Canadian Trucking Alliance issues update with CEO David Bradley, best practices in labour standards with Charles Landry, labour affairs officer with the Federal Labour Program, annual general meetings and of course the annual lobster fest.

There will be five awards presented at Friday’s business luncheon the Service to Industry Award, Driver of the year Award, Good Samaritan Award, Dispatcher of the Year Award and the Safety to Motor Transportation Award along with a guest speaker to mark the event.

The Associated Trades Council for the APTA will hold its annual casino evening with an Oktoberfest theme and organizers have planned some surprise entertainers, business sessions and speakers throughout the convention.
