OTA Dispatch Issue 2, 2022

13 www.ortrucking.org Issue 2 | 2022 OTA COUNCIL SMC and TMC will be taking the summer off, but meetings will resume in the fall—virtually and in-person! Please check our publications and event calendar www.ortrucking.org/events. Please contact OTA with any questions regarding TMC and SMC events: info@ortrucking.org. Safety Management Council (SMC) Update The Spring Safety Conference may be over, but SMC has stayed busy with the return of the Oregon Truck Driving Championships. The last event was held in 2019, but a two-year pandemic pause made ramping back up a bit of a challenge. OTA and SMC would like to thank everyone who helped pull the event together! Also, don’t miss the reveal of the Safety Grand Champion and the Fleet Professional of the Year at the 2022 OTA Annual Convention, August 16–17 in Bend. Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Update Due to busy schedules of our service technicians and fleet managers, TMC elected to delay the annual TMC Maintenance & Education Fair and the SuperTech Skills Competition. Instead of in May, these two events will now be held November 4 (TMC Fair) and November 5 (SuperTech) at the Pacific NW Truck Museum in Salem. Watch for more details!
