The Truckload Carriers Assn. (TCA) is looking for presenters specializing in business, work force management, workplace management, finance, and other disciplines pertinent to the trucking industry for the association’s annual Recruitment & Retention Conference and monthly webinars.

Produced in conjunction with ACS, the annual Recruitment & Retention Conference is a two-day educational opportunity for CEOs; COOs; vice presidents; recruiters; recruiting directors; and human resource, fleet, safety, and other managers involved in finding and engaging the best drivers.

Approximately 200 trucking professionals are expected to attend the 2014 conference, January 29-31, in Nashville, TN.

Workshops are either 60 or 120 minutes in length with an average attendance of 50. 

Deadline for submissions is Sept. 2, 2013. Recruitment & Retention Conference submissions will be reviewed September 2 through September 20, 2013, and notification of acceptance status will be provided in October.

Webinars are 90-minute online educational programs that cover a wide range of topics and issues — sales, business development, recruiting, employment law, and operations — pertinent to the trucking industry.

Attendees participate by listening to the presenter through a conference line and watching an interactive PowerPoint presentation on the internet. Webinars average 50 sites with an average of four people per site.

Webinar submissions are accepted throughout the year.

Those interested in participating should contact Ron Goode, TCA's director of education at RGoode@truckload.org.
