A video aimed at heightening awareness about the dangers of speed limiters in heavy trucks and an editorial calling for hours-of-service reform were just two of several campaigns undertaken by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association on behalf of its members.

Those campaigns garnered OOIDA two Gold PRISM awards from the Greater Kansas City Public Relations Society of America.

“We would like to thank the GKC-PRSA for acknowledging these works done on behalf of our members,” said Norita Taylor, director of public relations at OOIDA. “We strive to make our messages known beyond the trucking community and appreciate recognition from mainstream media as well.”

The GKC-PRSA is a chapter of the national PRSA and is a community of communications professionals across Kansas City and Midwest. Its signature event, the annual PRISM Awards, honors the year’s best in communications excellence.
