The 40 Under 40 Council was formed in 2009 to identify and cultivate new, young executives of member companies and acclimate them to the intricacies of the trucking world as well as the dynamics of the association.

Meeting quarterly, the 40 Under 40 Council brings in guest speakers to discuss leadership, politics, the industry and the association. The council provides forums in which its members can advance their careers in transportation and interest in the association. Through education and outreach programs, leadership traits are instilled to benefit members in their professional and personal lives.

Collectively, the council represents 17 companies and a myriad of specialties, including safety, operations, pricing, and recruitment across different segments of the industry (truckload, LTL, tanker and others.)

Criteria for consideration includes demonstrated leadership skills, commitment to a career in transportation and notable contributions to his or her company or industry.

Membership is limited to 40 people, under the age of 40, employed and nominated by an ATA carrier member or academic institution.

Corporate membership in the Arkansas Trucking Association is required to submit nominations for this council.

Annual Dues: $300
