“Supporting the Oregon Trucking Association as an Allied Member increases my ability to positively affect my industry. The OTA is able to be involved and have significant influence over State and local trucking issues that just can’t be accomplished as a single voice. Trucking really does move America forward and supporting the OTA helps keep it moving in the right direction.”
-Dave Gray, President, Glostone Trucking Solutions
"We have found great value in OTA’s ongoing work representing the industry and advocating for reasoned and fair legislative and governmental policy – efforts which have clearly aided the state’s transportation industry and built effective relations with Oregon’s state and local governments. I have worked with representatives who have participated on OTA’s Government Affairs Committee, Executive Committee, and Board of Directors for many years in support of OTA’s advocacy work. We believe this partnership has provided excellent ROI in terms of time and dollars invested, and has delivered significant dividends which truly represent the power of association with OTA."
-Lanny Gower, Manager Licensing & Operating Tax, XPO Logistics
"We belong to the OTA to network and build relationships that help guide us through the ever changing transportation industry."
-Myke Lake, CEO, McCracken Motor Freight
"A number of years ago my company was subject to an unclaimed property audit by the Oregon Division of State Lands. I was truly shocked by the proposed audit billing. I was not previously aware that Oregon businesses are required to report and remit unclaimed property to the State of Oregon. I involved OTA and Bob Russell worked with the state and my company to resolve the issue. The end result was that we were able to challenge the audit and saved a significant amount of money thanks to OTA!"
-Diane DeAutremont, President, Lile International Companies
"I had a tax audit that I believed was incorrect. I contacted OTA and Bob Russell to express my concern and request a possible solution to my dilemma. Bob was instrumental in setting up a meeting with ODOT officials. The meeting was very amicable and ODOT was helpful in providing direction that might resolve our issue. This consisted largely of their agreement to review the initial audit results following our provision of some specific information they requested. As a result, ODOT reduced what would have been a significant tax bill to a credit, saving my company over $60,000. While OTA has helped my company in many ways over the years, this is a concrete example of the benefits of being an OTA member. It makes it quite easy to pay our OTA dues when we know we have this kind of expertise and support available to us."
-Jim Helser, President, Helser Bros. Transfer Co
"I joined the Oregon Trucking Association because OTA works tirelessly to both promote and protect the trucking industry in Oregon. The work OTA does in the legislature as well as on the regulatory front is critical and in an ever-changing climate we need to know the issues. OTA is that liaison between the legislature and industry. It’s promotion of safety and the wealth of experience found throughout the membership in terms of the many industry safety professionals that contribute their time and expertise is found nowhere else. As an allied member we recognize the value that OTA brings to its members as well as the industry as a whole and feel it is an important association for us to be a member of as well as a proactive participant."
-Jennifer King, Account Executive, WHA Insurance
“Being a member of the Oregon Trucking Association has been a tremendous advantage to EROAD. Thanks to their highly relatable and well respected staff, we were very fortunate to become a part of the Oregon trucking family in a relatively short period of time. We feel extremely privileged to work with top notch industry veterans as their vast experience lends a great resource for thought leadership in the industry. It goes without saying that OTA’s well attended events and robust informational materials have provided exceptional networking opportunities for EROAD.”
-Susan Reszczynski, Stakeholder Manager, EROAD Inc.
OTA staff is top shelf. Friendly and personable. They know me and it feels like what an association is supposed to be like.
