Strong Attendance at TRALA’s 2023 Annual Meeting

Bonita Springs, Florida, April 3, 2023 -- The Truck Renting and Leasing Association (TRALA) opened its 2023 Annual Meeting on Sunday with more than 450 attendees at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Resort & Spa. 
“I think such a strong showing illustrates the fact that the renting and leasing segment of the trucking industry continues to flourish, and TRALA is providing its members with quality information to help them succeed,” said TRALA President and CEO, Jake Jacoby. “From our educational sessions to our policy committees, to the networking opportunities for both our regular and supplier members, it was very encouraging to see not only the number of attendees, but also how committed all our members are in their support of TRALA.”

TRALA discussed several critical federal and state issues impacting the truck renting and leasing industry during its Government Relations Committee meeting. The topics included issues related to tort reform, environmental regulations introduced both federally and in California, and industry-specific legislation in the states. 
During its Security Committee meeting, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sent representatives to meet with TRALA members to discuss ongoing threats to the industry and ways to work cooperatively together to protect the public.
TRALA's Equipment and Technology Advisory Council meeting featured presentations by representatives from Navistar, Geotab, and Penske Truck Leasing with respect to the changing world of trucking and how it will impact the maintenance of vehicles in the future. 

In the afternoon, Mack Leasing/Volvo Truck Leasing System, NationaLease and PacLease held discussions on their own leasing systems in meetings that are held in conjunction with the TRALA Annual Meeting each year.
Sunday ended with TRALA's New Member reception sponsored by Thermo King and an outstanding, well-attended welcome social Sunday evening hosted by Daimler Truck.
