Skills Gap and the Technician Shortage
Facing the technician shortage poses a threat that goes beyond just the numbers…the bigger issue is the lack of qualified candidates.

Accident Investigations: What You See, What You Don’t
Knowing the cause of accidents can help to prevent them in the future, but it’s not always immediately recognizable what the causes may be. Is it non-compliance issues…unaddressed violations…a lack of maintenance discipline? Michael Fox, who has conducted hundreds of investigations for FMCSA before joining the NTSB, will reveal the main reasons accidents occur and what you can do to prevent them.
Michael Fox, Highway Investigator, NTSB

What Happens Next? Looking Backward to See the Future
We live in increasingly uncertain times; rapid economic changes, global unrest, and bi-partisan bickering have all lead to an underlying sense of uncertainty. In addition to the current climate, headlines are screaming that robots and artificial intelligence are going to eliminate worker’s jobs. What if they are all wrong? What if we are merely extrapolating the present and ignoring the possibilities of the future? History books are full of examples of previous revolutions that came and went: the industrial revolution, the railroad revolution, electrification, mass production, and now, quite possibly, the information technology revolution. In this presentation, you will discover how we are nearing the end of this revolution while another is just beginning, providing a fresh wave of prosperity. Now is the time to ask yourself, “What Happens Next”?
Mark Zinder, Speaker, Economic Forecaster, Writer, and Consultant, Mark Zinder and Associates
