    With pandemic restraints finally lifting, OTA members and non-members in the southern part of the state were able to gather once again for the popular Southern Oregon Trucking Industry Mixer. In addition to food, fun and conversation, this year's event also featured a chat with Oregon gubernatorial candidate Betsy Johnson. The group gathered to hear about her vision for Oregon and ask questions about what her plans are if elected in November.

  • 2022 Spring Safety Conference

    April 27 - 29, 2022/Salem Convention Center

    OTA's Safety Management Council (SMC) was able to bring their annual conference back to its regular schedule. Industry safety professionals gathered to listen and learn from expert speakers and representatives from ODOT, OSHA and others. Given the broad scope of safety in the trucking industry, topics covered both the issues unique to the trucking industry and HR-related topics such as employee health & well-being. The Spring Safety Conference was also the perfect occasion to recognize some of the top safety professionals & teams. While the Safety Grand Champion and Safety Professional of the Year will be announced at OTA's Annual Convention & Exhibition in Bend this August, others received their awards during the event.

  • 2022 Oregon Truck Driving Championships

    June 11, 2022/Lane Events Center - Eugene, OR

    OTA & SMC welcomed drivers back to the Oregon Truck Driving Championships on June 11, 2022 in Eugene, OR. The event was canceled in 2020 & 2021 due to the pandemic. Drivers and spectators braved the "atmospheric river" that hit Eugene just in time for the competition to begin, but the rain didn't dampen the fun & festivities. OTA would like to thank everyone who helped bring back the Oregon TDC and congratulate all of our winners!
