The summit, scheduled from December 13-16, will be jointly organized by Tenstreet, Fastport, Hiring Our Heroes, TransForce, Troops into Transportation, and the American Trucking Associations (ATA). The venue for the event will be the ATA headquarters in Washington, D.C.

“The event allows organizations to learn the best practices and strategies for hiring and keeping military veterans,” stated a news release. “Sessions led by transportation industry leaders, military hiring experts, and military veterans like the Medal of Honor Recipient and hiring Our Heroes Ambassador Clint Romesha. Romesha will share their insights on how a company can create a culture of veteran support in the workplace. At this year’s summit, 30 of the attendees will have the opportunity to register for an in-depth and hands-on workshop led by PsychArmor Institute. They will also receive specialized training on each phase of veteran employment practices, earning them a certificate and added credentials.”

Daren Wingard, the executive director of the North American Transportation Employee Relations Association (NATERA), has expressed his endorsement and support for the summit.

“NATERA is proud to support the 2023 Veteran Ready Summit,” Wingard said. “We encourage all our members to attend the summit so they can learn best practices in military hiring and further strengthen the trucking industry’s commitment to offer quality career opportunities to veterans of the U.S. armed forces.”

Participants are encouraged to engage in various complementary events taking place across the nation’s capital. These events include, among others, the Transition Trucking Award Ceremony, the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Statement of Support Signing, and the Wreaths Across America Gala and Wreath Laying Ceremony.
