OOIDA invites its members attending the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., to discuss the Association’s agenda on the federal level and other issues during a Town Hall Meeting on Thursday.

The OOIDA Town Hall Meeting is scheduled for 10 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 28 in room C-104 of the South Wing corridor inside the Kentucky Exposition Center. Register for the Town Hall meeting here.

OOIDA encourages all of its members attending MATS to take part in the Town Hall Meeting, which will take place before the show doors open to the public on Thursday.

“This is an opportunity to provide OOIDA executives and government affairs staff your feedback on our legislative and regulatory agenda in Washington, D.C.,” OOIDA Executive Vice President Lewie Pugh said. “We want you to share your insight and professional experience regarding the decisions made in D.C. and how they impact your business.”

OOIDA President Todd Spencer, Pugh, and OOIDA Manager of Government Affairs Mike Matousek will lead the discussion, highlight legislative and regulatory opportunities and challenges in 2019, and answer questions.

For those wanting to attend the Town Hall Meeting but who are not currently OOIDA members, there will be opportunities to join at the show.

“We hope you’re able to attend and get more involved with the Association,” Pugh said. “We look forward to seeing you at MATS.”
