Are you making the right choice for your business?
MDTA can help protect your interests!

The MDTA family is celebrating their 50th anniversary at its Annual Convention & Trade Show in St. Charles, Missouri on Friday, January 24, 2020 by member registration or special member invitation only, and Saturday, January 25, 2020 by free general admission from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

For 50 years, members of the Missouri Dump Truckers Association (MDTA) have been making sound choices to support and protect the interests of the dump truck industry.

MDTA is distinguished in its membership of over-the-road haulers of dry bulk commodities. The membership is statewide, and with the members and their employees, you will find us in communities all over the state. Members are working businessmen and businesswomen who constitute an essential part of the transportation and construction industry.

One critical choice for a dump truck owner and/or operator is building a fleet of trucks and the care and maintenance of those trucks. The MDTA Associate Members consisting of dump truck, trailer body manufacturers/dealers, suppliers, vendors and other entities collaborate with the Regular Members to provide solutions to issues and concerns to support the bulk-hauler industry.

Together with its governmental consultant headquartered in Jefferson City, the MDTA represents the dump truck industry in the legislature and is looking out for your interest.

A business is only as good as its weakest member, so putting together a strong group is paramount to the business in making sound business practices. It takes a team to make decisions. Knowing how to make a good business decision and when to seek help in making those decisions will help a business thrive. Consult someone with more expertise, seek out a mentor, take stock in employees strengths and attributes and achievable goals can be obtained.

The St. Charles Convention Center extends its hospitality to the MDTA members as well as vendors from all over Missouri and surrounding states. Convention registrations include three meals and entertainment on Friday and Saturday night.

During the Friday night social, heavy appetizers and drinks are served for the enjoyment of the registrants and their invited guests, along with music by the Burnt Whiskey band.

After the Saturday morning breakfast included in the Embassy Suite reservation, a Board and General Membership meeting will commence with voting for the 2020 slate of officers. The members will receive an annual status report. There will be presentations and an address from Senator Cindy O’Laughlin.

For registrants, a luncheon is offered in the Junior Ballroom adjacent to the exhibit hall. In the meeting rooms across the foyer from the exhibit hall, there are seminars offered on Saturday from representatives of the Missouri Department of Transportation Motor Carrier Services Division on “Hot Topics in Transportation” and a seminar on “Keeping the Shiny Side Up: Safety Strategies for MDTA Members” offered by Mark Woodward, Sr. Safety and Risk Trainer from Missouri Employers Mutual. Saturday night promises another delicious dinner and raffle drawings followed by an evening of entertainment by the Garden Party band.

The MDTA Annual Convention & Trade Show offers the opportunity to learn more about the latest industry developments, safety regulations and how others in the industry are utilizing this knowledge. Take advantage of the networking opportunities at the MDTA convention and trade show. Experience the hands-on atmosphere with vendors ready with information and demonstrations. This is your chance to talk with other experts in the trucking industry who understand a commercial dump truck is the backbone of the transportation and construction industries, compare products, and assess pricing. If you are in trucking, you need to attend.
