...the Voice of the Trucking Industry Since 1939. Saturday 24, Jun 2017   

Dear Fellow LMTA members,

First, please know that I am truly honored to have been elected as the 2016-2017 President of LMTA. This association provides a great environment where we are able to build not only business relationships but also valued friendships. I wish to serve my term to the best of my ability knowing that there are some big shoes to fill.

As President of the LMTA I plan to make this Association even better. I think we should encourage our past presidents to be more involved. It is vital to LMTA that we utilize their leadership, knowledge and experience to help us achieve the goals that we set out every year. Personally, I think we should look at our past presidents as mentors. Many are still active in the trucking industry and we need to actively involve them in the association.

In addition, I would like to establish a task force that would focus on promoting the trucking industry and marketing the LMTA – which should put us in a position to win the ATA Image Award.

My overall objectives are to increase membership by utilizing our allied members and their relationships with trucking companies throughout the state. And, we need to promote a positive image of the trucking industry.

Finally, we need a new website that our motor carrier members can use for information and our allied members can use to market their services. This will allow us to centralize all information and generate additional traffic so that everyone can see the value of LMTA.

Again I am honored to serve as LMTA’s 2016-2017 president. I look forward to leading our association and enjoying a successful year.

Thank you,

John Austin
