CSA 2010 INFO AT MERCER DURING TRUCKSHOW

As most of you are aware, the Mid-America Trucking Show will be held in Louisville Thursday March 25 through Saturday March 27.  I will leave it to Recruiting and others to discuss all the Mercer-related events, but there are two things here that everyone attending should be aware of:

First, the General Management Group will hold their annual question and answer session at  9:00AM on Wednesday morning March 24 in the main orientation classroom near Recruiting. They have asked me host a short discussion of CSA 2010 at the beginning of the session. In addition, the new orientation video on CSA 2010 will be shown throughout the day in the small orientation classroom across the hall. I will be available for group discussions throughout the day.

On Wednesday afternoon, probably around 2:00 or so, we will have a general session on CSA 2010. We will try to have it in the large classroom unless the crowd size forces us into the warehouse prior to the evening activities. My friend (and former Mercer employee) Jerry Kiefer will host a session on CSA 2010. Jerry is a Federal DOT officer who is in charge of training the various law enforcement agencies around the country on CSA 2010. This is a private event for Mercer folks only. We will have more on this as we get closer to the date.

It is important that everyone educates themselves about CSA 2010.  As I’ve said many times, this is industry-changing stuff. You must get clean inspections. Any writeup or warning counts against both Mercer and you personally. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. Run legal, be safe.

      I would love to Chuck. Since the blog is run for free…I am pretty limited. Find me some advertising dollars! I will take a lot of notes and recap what we discuss here on the blog.
