Friday Welcome these great speakers!

FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 8-11 A.M. – Emerald BALLROOM Steve Gilliland Steve Gilliland is one of the most in-demand speakers in the world. Recognized as a master storyteller and brilliant comedian, he can be heard daily on SiriusXM Radio’s Laugh USA. With an appeal that transcends barriers of age, culture and occupation—plus an interactive and entertaining style—Steve shows audiences how to open doors to success in their careers, their relationships and their lives. In addition to his brilliant speaking career, Steve is a prolific, accomplished author, evidenced by four of his books—Enjoy The Ride, Making a Difference, Hide Your Goat and Detour—perennially making the publisher’s bestseller list and his being named Author of the Year. His thought-provoking writing style makes his articles a favorite with nationally prominent magazines. He influences the lives of millions through his presentations, books, CDs and DVDs. Speaking the language of active business leaders, his books and recordings identify practical lessons that grow people and their businesses. As a businessman, Steve built a multimillion-dollar company from the ground up on the same philosophy he expounds to his audiences. If you continually learn more about your company, your industry, your customer and yourself, you will always be a leader. You will be purpose-driven rather than process-driven, and you will make a difference. His motto is straightforward: “If you take care of people, the business will follow.” He has been recognized by Who’s Who for Speakers and Business Professionals, and The Pittsburgh Business Times named his company one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the region. Steve was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, resides in North Carolina and travels the world. He received his bachelor’s degree from Grove City College (Pennsylvania) and his MBA from Globe University (Minnesota). He is a proud grandpa, devoted father of four boys and a loving husband to his wife, Diane. Steve learned great compassion for people and a commitment to a hard work and balanced life ethic at the knee of his highly principled Christian mother and stepfather. Whether Steve is speaking at an event, writing about current issues that impact people or leading his own employees, he is not just a person who challenges people to change, he motivates them to do so. We promise anyone who hears his message leaves with a renewed sense of enthusiasm for who they are and for what really matters.

Be sure to attend the ATA Workers’ Comp Fund Reception Friday evening from 5-7 P.M. in the Emerald Ballroom.

Be inspired, be informed! FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 8-11 A.M. – Emerald BALLROOM Rorke Denver We’re so very proud to present our keynote speaker, actor and author, and former United States Navy SEALs Commander Rorke Denver. He is best known for his role as Lieutenant Rorke in the 2012 film Act of Valor and appearances as team leader in the Fox Television series, American Grit. During his outstanding military career, Mr. Denver ran every phase of training for the U.S. Navy SEALs and led special-forces missions in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and many other international hot spots. After completing the SEALs’ legendary Basic Underwater Demolition program in 1999 (BUD/S Class 224), Denver began an action-filled 13-year career as a platoon commander and training leader with America’s premier special-operations force. As assistant officer in charge of BRAVO Platoon at SEAL Team THREE, he was deployed to the Central and South American Area of Operations (SOUTCOM), where his platoon was the alert SEAL team for maritime interdiction, hostage rescue, counter-insurgency and counter-narcotics. As SEAL officer aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard, Denver led his group’s response to a murderous uprising in the Ivory Coast nation of Liberia, launching advanced-force operations, conducting hydrographic beach reconnaissance and helping to get U.S. Marines safely ashore. At Special Boat Team TWELVE, he started the Maritime Capable Air Deployable Boat Detachment, which specialized in parachuting large assault boats from U.S. aircraft. In 2006, he was officer in charge of BRAVO Platoon of SEAL Team THREE in Iraq’s Al Anbar Province in one of the most combat-heavy deployments of any regular SEAL team since Vietnam. After returning to the U.S., Denver was appointed flag lieutenant to Admiral Joseph Maguire, commanding officer of Naval Special Warfare, traveling to Afghanistan and briefing Congress on SEAL operations. In 2009, he became First Phase officer of SEAL Basic Training including Hell Week, then rose to Basic Training officer. His New York Times bestseller, Damn Few: Making the Modern SEAL Warrior, takes you inside his personal story and the fascinating, demanding SEAL training program he now oversees. In his second book Worth Dying For: A Navy SEALs Call to a Nation, Rorke tackles the questions that have emerged about America’s past decade at war–from what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us. Denver is an honor graduate of the United States Army Ranger School. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Syracuse University, where he was an All-American lacrosse player and captain of the varsity lacrosse team. He earned a Master’s Degree in Global Business Leadership from the University of San Diego.

Reception + Dinner CELEBRATING THE LEADERSHIP OF ATA CHAIRMAN TERRY KILPATRICK “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” -Winston Churchill As a young fleet executive, ATA Chairman of the Board Terry Kilpatrick attended his first ATA convention 30 years ago, seeking to rub elbows with Alabama’s trucking industry elite. That weekend he met some of our Association’s heavy hitters of trucking, men like the late Dempsey Boyd (Boyd Bros. Transportation) and Walter Poole (Evergreen Transportation) and living legends such as James Suttles (Suttles Truck Leasing) and Harrold Sorrells (MSJ Trucking). “These were successful businessmen who offered great ideas and a deep knowledge about trucking – and they were willing to freely share that knowledge with others – including me.” Kilpatrick says. “I have always remembered and appreciated those days.” Last June, Mr. Kilpatrick was installed as ATA’s top elected leader at a ceremony at ATA’s Montgomery headquarters. His ambitious agenda for the year included building stronger public outreach programs to bring younger workers to the industry and provide the public with more understanding of trucking’s purpose and value to the state’s economy. But his crowning achievement is the creation of a charitable foundation devoted to industry promotion, research and outreach. The new organization was incorporated in Montgomery County on January 31, 2018 as the Alabama Trucking Association Foundation (or ATA Foundation, for short). It’s a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that will “operate exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary or educational projects,” which could include seminars, conferences, lectures, classes and other forums to inform and educate the public regarding the transportation industry in Alabama, and beyond. Also, we will recognize this year’s Alabama Truck Driver of the Year longtime ABC Transportation truck driver Moses Thomas, who was recently selected by the ATA Safety and Maintenance Management Council for his commitment to industry safety and professionalism in a career that has spanned four decades and 3.7 million safe miles. Another highlight of this event is the announcement of the 2018 H. Chester Webb Award, which is this Association’s highest honor for a member. Last year’s recipient Bill Ward of Ward International Trucks will announce the winner.

Dress is semi-formal (A dinner jacket or suit, cocktail dress for ladies).

2018 Alabama Trucking Association Convention


Chevy 6

Stay up late with ATA and Chevy 6 Help us close out another great convention with party band legends Chevy 6. This popular act formed sometime around the spring of 1974, forged from the fraternities and bars of Tuscaloosa, Ala. Back then, most live bands followed the jammy, blues-rock blueprint of the Allman Brothers Band or ‘70s southern rock deities, Lynyrd Skynyrd, but realizing that the music of the 1950s was becoming more popular through the advent of throwback television shows like Happy Days and Sha Na Na and the success of movies like American Graffiti, it seemed a natural step to form a band that offered the best songs of that era to throngs of partying college students. Though the startup was a bit slow, mainly due to the fact that many musicians felt playing oldies was beneath them, the band finally caught traction and began to find themselves booking bigger and better things than a sweaty, beer soaked fraternity house party rooms and dive bars. Along with great musicianship and lively showmanship, what got Chevy 6 there was its use of a show band format that included a 50s revue, a soul revue, and a 60s revue, cramming each set full of only the best songs from these great eras of American popular music. During its 44 years, in one form or another the band has performed for a massive array of events, including appearances on local and regional television broadcasts, a host of private events, conventions, conferences and reunions aplenty. They’ve even made appearances at the some of the Southeast’s best nightclubs and largest music festivals. Maybe, it wasn’t supposed to last this long, but for some reason Chevy 6 carries on better than ever. Stick around late, we’ll keep the bar open as long as there are bodies on the dance floor…we promise!
