As it has for many years, BGS was a sponsor of the Minnesota Trucking Association’s annual conference, held this year at Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria.  The conference is a great opportunity to connect with trucking companies and transportation officials in a relaxed and fun setting.  Included in conference activities were golf and other social events, as well as educational sessions on business topics important to the industry.

BGS sponsored the keynote speaker, David Horsager. David is CEO of Trust Edge Leadership Institute and inventor of The Enterprise Trust Index™, director of the annual study – The Trust Outlook™, and the bestselling author of The Trust Edge. He provided a dynamic and engaging presentation on the critical nature of trust in all business relationships.  BGS’ own attorney Erik Ordahl had the opportunity to introduce this amazing keynote speaker.

BGS Attorneys Jim Wills (a former long term MTA board member) and Carole Clark Isakson (a current board member of the MTA Foundation) introduced associate BGS attorney Erik Ordahl and BGS paralegal Rachel Schwankl to all things trucking, including the truck expo sponsored by Blaine Brothers. While most industries can field an interesting conference, we’re pretty sure that only a trucking conference features a parking lot exhibit of huge new trucks! If you can manage the climb, some were even open for a closer look inside.

The event is also an opportunity to recognize those in the industry who are making a difference in the way they operate and maintain their fleet. Congratulation to Halvor Lines for winning the 2022 Fleet Safety grand champion award!

This year’s event was a successful gathering of those in the trucking industry and great to be able to meet in person. The MTA annual conference is a good time for industry members and services providers to connect over food, fun and education.
