The Annual Truck Driver Social Media Convention is a uniting of those within the trucking industry to recognize and honor professional CDL drivers. Drivers are attending the event in order to be informed about the most pressing issues within trucking today.
Issues to be discussed in this year’s convention include:
- The truck driver shortage
- FMCSA medical regulations
- Truck Driver Health
- Sleep Apnea
- The human trafficking epidemic
- Social Media in trucking
- Truckers rights within the law
Using the power of social media, it is an event to create awareness within the industry and to the general public regarding the sacrifices and challenges that professional truck drivers face. A major feature of the convention is the “open forum” where drivers can address the panel, making statements or ask questions and receive answers.
What sets the convention apart from other trucking events, is that it is all about the driver. Direct interaction during the open forums where drivers, attendees and speakers openly discuss, ask questions and share information is a vital tool for the awareness aspect.
It is an event that gathers those who believe that honesty and transparency should be priority when networking and communicating with one another.
The entire convention will be professionally photographed and videographed by Mr. Shumate and highlights will be presented through out the world wide web.
