WASHINGTON, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations thanked five allied members for purchasing pavers at ATA's Capitol Hill office to help support the trucking industry's advocacy efforts.
"Our members consistently tell us that advocacy is their most important reason for membership in ATA," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "A large part of our advocacy effort is maintaining a permanent presence on Capitol Hill, just steps from where decision makers are writing the laws that affect our industry. By stepping up to place a paver at our Capitol Hill office, these companies are ensuring ATA and the trucking industry will continue to have a permanent presence on Capitol Hill, and we are tremendously grateful for their support."
The five companies that will be recognized are EpicVue; HELP Inc., providers of PrePass; HireRight; U.S. Legal Services and Velociti.
