2022 Sessions

The Best Defense...

(Or what to do even before Tort Reform)

Doug Marcello has successfully defended hundreds of trucking cases over his career.  More importantly, he has developed techniques and practices defense attorneys can use to aggressively push back against billboard lawyers and sleazy tactics from plaintiff’s attorneys.  He will share these techniques and real-world results in a session sure to provide carriers with new ways to think about their own defense.


When I’m 64

(Strategic thinking of young leaders)

This panel of young leaders (all under 40) will discuss long-term strategies when the long term is 20 or 30 years, not just the next 2 to 3.  These are leaders who will have to deal with electrification and automation, with the war for talent and more.  Join the discussion as we hear what they are thinking.

Stop Leaving Money on the Table

Steven Murphy and Chris Arnone will review mistakes they most often see companies make and opportunities they most often see companies miss. Regulations and tax treatments constantly change, as do government incentives and programs.  Join this discussion to explore bottom-line benefits that your firm may be missing.


The Fearless Forecast

Economist Roger Tutterow will lead a session reviewing the current economic state and trends – and add his fearless forecast of what to expect in the year ahead.  Tutterow’s wit, and insight into the trucking industry make his sessions both entertaining and strategically valuable.

The State of Our State

Jay Morgan will share insights related to the 2022 November Elections and what the political landscape will look like moving forward in the next few years in Georgia.  His expert analysis of the state's legislature will offer a unique opportunity for attendees to dialogue.
