Letter from the Executive Director
Fall has always been my favorite time of year. I really enjoy the onset of cooler weather, hunting and football season. Just as we often pray that the LSU Tigers will RALLY this time of year, the Fall is great for all of us in that we have time to double-down to meet or exceed our goals for the year. When I started 2018 as your new Executive Director, my goals were to keep trucking safe during the legislative sessions, execute our great annual events, and immerse myself in the workings of LMTA so that I could make thoughtful enhancements for 2019 and beyond. The sessions and our events went great this year, and I am pleased to report that I am fully immersed in planning for 2019 and the future.
Earlier this year LMTA initiated a strategic planning process with a completion date of October 2019. The plan is different from past efforts of LMTA this time we are not only setting our goals and objectives, we are actually creating a plan to make it happen. 2019 will be year one of a five year strategy to grow our membership by enhancing our membership value. We will tackle expanding services and benefits, improving our events, aggressive legislative agendas, and improving the trucking industry’s public image. I am working closely with the Board of Directors in developing this path forward, and I am eager to present it to the full membership in the coming months.
It’s an exciting, transitional time for LMTA with a very bullish future.
