Women in Trucking
In 2010 the Women In Trucking Association held its first "Salute to Women Behind the Wheel" at the Mid-America Trucking Show. There were nearly 400 female drivers who helped celebrate. Anne Farro was the Federal Motor Carrier Administrator who thanked them all for being pioneers. We gave them all red t-shirts and our sponsors provided lots of food, fun, and entertainment. There were exhibitors who gave the drivers and their spouses goodie bags filled with fun gifts and door prizes. We all loved the chocolate fountain, which has become a signature item at every event.
This year, we were unable to hold our Salute to Women Behind the Wheel in person, but we were all there in spirit!
We look forward to partnering with the Mid-America Trucking Show for the next fifty years!
Here's to all the female drivers out there. We SALUTE you!
