We are in extraordinary times for sure. These times are revolutionary without a doubt. The only way organizations will win during these extraordinary and revolutionary times moving forward is with new models. A new model of revolutionary change. We as an industry need to drive change, drive leadership, drive innovation.

Think of how innovative we have had to become in order to change with the times. One of the big innovations this year is the shift from in-person to virtual conferences. The Private Motor Carrier of a Canada (PMTC)  just hit it out of the park with their conference. The Truckload Carrier Association (TCA) did a terrific job with their virtual conferences and just around the corner on October 2nd the Fleet Safety Council (FSC) has put together a stellar line up and agenda for a morning of education and information.

The FSC shared some exciting news last week, Caroline Mulroney, the Minister of Transportation will provide the opening remarks. You won’t want to miss this. The morning will continue with updates from industry leaders, professionals, all highly regarded and recognized by anyone in transportation and their conference is free of charge for anyone to attend.

An advanced big congratulations to the Fleet Safety Council and the leadership at the Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA) and the conference committee. I am told at time of this blog there are 175 delegates registered and there is still a few weeks to go.

As a young man many, many years ago the Fleet Safety Council was an excellent organization and resource that I benefited from and still do today.

Other things happening that is reflective of our camp in our businesses is the October 22nd Virtual National Recruiting & Retention Symposium 2020. As most of you know we have had to reschedule the in person Symposium twice and are now scheduled for next April 2021. Every single one of our sponsors has stuck behind us which means so much to us. In order to bring them value and show our appreciation the mini Symposium’s we have been hosting are free of charge and bring great value to our sponsors, delegates and the industry.

The recent addition of Stephen Laskowski leader of CTA and OTA discussing Driver Inc. – Where We Are, Where We Need To Be is an excellent addition to our already stellar line up. (https://therearviewmirror.ca/2020/09/15/stephen-laskowski-to-speak-at-the-virtual-nrrs-2020/).
