Calling All Presenters! 2019 Annual Convention CFP Now Open


Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) is proud to announce that its Call for Presenters is now open for the 81st Annual Convention. The premier networking and education event in the truckload industry, the 2019 Convention will be held March 10-12 at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We at TCA are dedicated to building an educational experience at our 81st Annual Convention that is unrivaled within the industry,” explains TCA President John Lyboldt. “Quite frankly, we want you in workshops that provide methods to make your business better, and that are worth taking the time out of your hectic schedules to attend.”

Who better to know what works than you: a dedicated TCA member with truckload knowledge and real world experience? As such, TCA is now calling on you to submit your workshop ideas, and serve as a guide for meaningful discussions in 2019.

The Annual Convention brings together carriers and industry suppliers from across the U.S. and Canada for three days of informative general sessions and timely workshops. The Convention provides a variety of educational offerings on specific issues and topics that are relevant and directly affect those within the industry’s ability to build value for their companies, including but not limited to legal, safety, and retention best practices. Approximately 1,200 trucking professionals are expected to attend.

Session proposals are now being accepted for the 75-minute Trucking in the Round workshops occurring throughout the event. To submit, complete the online application. Carriers are especially encouraged to apply. You must have an account within TCA’s new online system or use your current TCA credentials to submit. Deadline for submission is October 15, 2018. All those who apply will be contacted as to their acceptance status, and dates and times of all accepted workshops will be decided by TCA based on a balancing of subject matter.
