|We had our first scheduled Meeting on September 8, 2016. Our speaker was Mr. Troy Courtney, director of Inland Logistics and Marine. He is from the Institute of Western Community and Technical College in Paducah KY. Topic was how they are having success in online educational classes and seems to be seeing more students looking for careers in the transportation industry. In this meeting we also had discussion of what we are going to do to grow our membership chapter. We have started putting together a committee to look at different ways to get our name and information out by social media and other publications that are local in the area.
In the meeting coming up in October, we are having Hank Seaton to speak to us about “Preparing for wind, rain and the storms ahead in the truck transportation industry.
November we will be having a plant tour at Shiloh Industries, Bowling Green, KY. Will be seeing how they manufacture, warehouse and set up shipping for this facility.
We are currently firming up the rest of this term year and we will be having the Junk food and candy drive in December as we take the donations over to the kids at the Potter’s Children’s Home.
And we have the annual Golf outing in May to help raise funds for scholarships for the year.
