Dear KPTA Members: 

The Bi-Annual KPTA/KYTC Conference Expo is upon us and we need your support.  We have been working hard to put together a quality conference and Expo.  Thanks to our Chairperson Pam Shepherd, I believe this will be the best conference we have ever had.  The lineup of speakers and presenters is an all-star lineup.  You can check out the tentative schedule and speakers by going to the event page of our website. 

We especially want you present on Tuesday night August 15, because Asa Swan, Chief of Staff for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will be our guest speaker and on Wed. night Aug. 16, Dr. Yvette Taylor, FTA Region 4 Administrator, will be our guest speaker.  We want to pack the house to show both of these individuals how much they are appreciated by KPTA. 

I want to encourage members to sign up there best driver’s for the Roadeo.  Your driver’s deserve recognition and what better way to show them how much you appreciate them by allowing them to participate.  I also want to remind everyone to get there registration in and to make your room reservations by July 23, 2017, so you will be able to get the special rate of $129.00 per night.

As always, I want to thank the membership for their ongoing support of. KPTA.
