NTTC conference features Mayor Koch, ATA vice-president
Apr 1, 2008 12:00 PM
A Former mayor of New York City and an American Trucking Associations (ATA) economy expert will headline the National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) Annual Conference and Equipment Show May 18-20 in New York City.
“We are very excited to bring our 60th Anniversary Conference and Equipment Show to New York City,” says John Conley, NTTC president.
“Certainly the topics on our agenda and the equipment and services on display on our exhibit floor would amaze attendees from the first annual conference and show held at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC in 1948,” he adds. “However, I suspect that attendees from the only other NTTC annual conference held in New York City, at the Waldorf Astoria in 1950, would not at all be surprised to see that New York is still one of the most exciting and dynamic cities in the world.”
Who better could speak to the city's attraction than Ed Koch, who served three terms as mayor from 1978 to 1989. Koch will kickoff the conference at the opening breakfast Monday.
The mayor was recognized for his monetary expertise, placing the city on a generally accepted accounting practices budget. Today, Koch is a weekly guest on NY1 television, writes a weekly political column, and publishes movie reviews.
Bob Costello serves as chief economist and vice-president at ATA. He manages the association's collection, analysis, and dissemination of trucking economic information, and also conducts economic analyses of proposed regulations and legislation affecting the trucking industry.
The conference continues Monday and Tuesday. Topics and speakers for the conference include:
Competing on Analytics, new tools for the tank truck industry, Ken Manning, Transportation Costing Group.
Managing Fuel Costs in a Volatile Economy, Tripp Dunman, Fuel Surcharge Group, FC Stone.
Owner-Operators as independent contractors and anti-indemnification issues, Greg Feary, Scopelitis, Garvin, Light, Hanson and Feary PC.
Cargo Tank Rollover Prevention Program — What's Next? Steve Niswander, Groendyke Transport, Rollover Prevention Committee chairman; Bob Richards, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration; William Quade, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration; and John Conley, NTTC.
