ATA CEO Stuart St Clair says a gala dinner will be held at Trucking Australia 2015 to celebrate the ATA's 25th birthday.


Next year’s Trucking Australia conference will be used to celebrate the Australian Trucking Association’s (ATA) 25th birthday. 

The event, to be held in Hobart, will run from March 19 to 21 and will include a gala dinner on the final evening that will focus on the ATA’s milestone.

"The Australian Trucking Association has worked to improve the safety, professionalism and viability of the trucking industry for 25 years. There have been a lot of changes in this time," ATA CEO Stuart St Clair says.

"At the gala dinner, we will celebrate our achievements over the last 25 years and recognise the contributions made by so many in our industry."

Next year’s event will also mark three years since the ATA introduced a new format.

Trucking Australia is now aimed at directly engaging delegates during forums and allowing them to put forward their own views to help shape the ATA’s agenda for the year ahead.

"There won’t be lectures from politicians, public servants or the police. Instead, delegates can use the open forums to have their say and let the ATA know what issues should be on its priority list," St Clair says.

"The ideas developed at Trucking Australia 2015 will be used to help develop the ATA’s strategic plan, which determines its lobbying, communications and research priorities."

Trucking Australian 2015 will also bring to an end St Clair’s tenure as ATA CEO. He will hand over his responsibilities to Chris Melham, who is currently the CEO of NatRoad.
