The Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO) hosted its 3rd Annual Conference, Striving for Excellence in Training, in Mississauga, Ontario on Wednesday, February 28 and Thursday, March 1 at the Centre for Health and Safety Innovation (CHSI), thanks to the association members and official facility sponsor, the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA). The hallway and conference centre were filled with sponsor booths, many of which returned for the third year in a row.

Approximately 120 delegates attended the Conference, taking part in the meetings and networking opportunities. Delegates included training facilities, trucking companies, government representatives, consultants and industry service providers. Day one of the Conference featured meetings throughout the day including, a Board of Directors meeting, a TTSAO Carrier Group meeting, a TTSAO Insurance Group meeting and the TTSAO’s Annual General Meeting to wrap up the afternoon.

Following the meetings, delegates gathered for networking and cocktails, surrounded by sponsor booths. Once again this year, the networking event featured a guest speaker – Kelly Henderson, Executive Director of Trucking Human Resources Sector Council Atlantic. Kelly shared her thoughts on how we can better work with millennials. Using videos and current stats, she provided valuable insight on this topic to everyone in attendance.
