what have we done for you this week?

In 2018, the Ohio Trucking Association reintroduced regional meetings throughout the state of Ohio. The concept was redesigned in an effort to reconnect with our members in their home region and highlight the current actions and plans for OTA. The program was available for members at no cost. These events usually took place over breakfast or lunch, and included: a state of the association by President & CEO Tom Balzer; member benefits; and Q&A sessions led by local legislators. We were fortunate to have engaged almost 200 OTA members during our 2018 OTA on the Road meeting series, which visited North Canton, Cincinnati, Dayton, Versailles, Toledo, Cleveland, Columbus, and Findlay. We are continuing this effort into 2019. Please join us for our first OTA on the Road Event on March 7, 2019 at Barley's Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio from 5-7PM. Register here.
