“The farther backward you can look,
the farther forward you are likely to see.”
As the Ontario Trucking Association is committed to providing carrier executives the tools to develop the next generation of leaders of their companies, it’s fitting to honour those pioneering fleet owners and managers who paved the road for the OTA becoming one of the strongest associations in Canada. The ambitiousness and grand elegance of many of those past momentous OTA conventions is what inspired OTA to reimagine and revitalize the 87th annual convention.
The OTA convention has seen many sports legends, inspirational speakers, broadcasters and musical icons through the years – from Don Cherry and Donavon Bailey to Rubin “Hurricane” Carter to Burton Cummins and Michael Buble – but there’s one attraction that remains constant among attendees of any age and position at their company – the unique ability to network, get informed, have fun and help shape the industry with current and future leaders.
“The convention is a meeting place of people in the trucking industry, of competitors and colleagues who all share a common vision, which is the betterment and advancement of trucking in Ontario,” once noted Joseph O. Goodman, AKA ‘Mr. Trucking,’ general manager of OTA’s predecessor, the Automotive Transport Association on Ontario (1940-1978).
Because of the hard work, dedication and united vision of Ontario’s trucking pioneers and business leaders over the last 87 years, the OTA today is one of the strongest, most influential trade associations in Canada, offering hundreds of carrier members and allied trades a host of valuable information, products and services and policy representation at all levels of government .
