PODCAST: This is a recording of our 2nd "Women Truckers Network" (WTN) phone conference held July 7, 2012. Our discussion covers using social media networks like You Tube to share information to prospective CDL students and launching our own "Women Truckers Network" You Tube Channel for the purpose of answering questions for women entering trucking. Since this conference we have embedded some of those videos in a new page of our blog called "Female CDL Students Frequently Asked Questions"
Equipment, Hygiene on the road, parking smart, personal safety concerns and issues for female students are the topics we cover in this discussion to help people who do not understand the complexities of the trucking lifestyle.
Listen in as experienced female truckers tell it like it is...living on the road...
Originally recorded 7/7/2012 , Topics covered in this women truckers network rountable discussion include, training expectations from the trainers point of view, personal safety advice, driver conduct and trucking lifestyle challenges that most trainees are not prepared for when they enter the industry.
Listen in as the REAL Women in Trucking talk about the challenges the face and despite the obstacles, how they love their job.

Kevin Reid is the Founder and CEO of the National Minority Trucking Association with over 21 years of sales, marketing and executive management experience within the transportation industry. The NMTA provides education, resources and strong representation to all truckers across North America, with its founding focus based on the representation and educating of minorities within the industry.
Mr. Reid began his transportation career in sales and marketing for an Atlanta based courier company before launching Universal Courier where he served as CEO. He then began serving as a go-to consultant for minority start-up trucking firms. Later he would become the co-founder of an Atlanta based intermodal trucking company where he served as Sr. Vice President. While serving in various industry positions, he was motivated to launch the NMTA as he discovered a void in the representation of minorities in the trucking and transportation industry.
The NMTA offers many services and benefits such as education, training and consulation, all aimed in assisting truck drivers to succeed in their chosen profession. In addition to their strong representation, NMTA is constantly working to provide new benefits and services that will aid their members. These services and programs are designed to provide big fleet purchasing power to the independent professional trucker. Regardless of whether one is an owner-operator with their own authority or leased, or a company driver, the NMTA offers access to important benefits ranging from business operation, employment assistance and IRS Filings starting as low as $9.95 per single vehicle.
Kevin Reid joins us as our special guest to further discuss the continual vision of the NMTA and to share some startling facts about the minority population within the trucking industry.

Topic: I am not a Lot Lizard Media Campaign
Guest: Kylla Leeburg ~ TAT Social Media Coordinator
The work of Trucker's Against Trafficking continues with a new media campaign that aims to end the tolerance of a vicious remark and attitude that has grown to be acceptable among truck drivers. The remark serves to further dehumanize victims that may actually need your help.
TAT was formed to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking and travel plaza industry to combat domestic sex trafficking.
While TAT has made significant progress by changing the way truckers perceive sex trafficking , there remains the term that is widely used in the industry, many times by other women who are truck drivers or spouses to describe persons that frequent some truck parking areas selling sex services.
Join us to learn more about the TAT organization, their mission, their success stories, how you can recognize the signs of sex trafficking to report it and how you can help by changing the way you THINK and SPEAK on the topic.
