Annual Convention:

Our Annual Convention is held each year in late summer.  This is a great opportunity to hear speakers discuss current issues of interest to the industry and to meet with some of our industry’s regulators.  Entertaining speakers, a welcome reception and a golf tournament add lots of networking opportunities.  In addition to daily General Business Sessions, other meetings include the LMTA Board of Directors and TransPac Membership.  In the past several years, our Annual Convention has been held along the gulf coast in Alabama and Florida.
