  • coordinating efforts to interest people in truck driving careers
  • volunteering for public safety outreach projects
  • organizing the Nebraska Truck Driving Championships

12:00 – 2:00pm (11:00am Check In – 11:30am Lunch) – Embassy Suites: 12520 Westport Parkway, Lavista NE
Special Guest Speaker Doug Donscheski, Director of Safety, Training and Membership Development for the Nebraska Trucking Association.

Are you prepared? Do you know what records will be reviewed? Do you comply with the regulations and record keeping? What happens when the DOT knocks
on your Door? What are the specific requirements for a DOT Audit? Whatever your question, you can get it answered at September’s Safety Management Council program.

About our presenter:  Doug has more than 40 years’ experience with the Nebraska State Patrol/Carrier Enforcement Division. The last 1 1⁄2 years as the Director of Safety, Training and Membership Development for the Nebraska Trucking Association. A DOT review of your transportation safety program records and evaluation can be pain- free if your company’s management team understands the regulations to which they are subject and what records the DOT expects to see.
