Anne S. Ferro, administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-PA) will deliver keynote addresses at the upcoming Heavy Duty Aftermarket Legislative Summit.
The summit will take place Sept. 20-21 in Washington, DC. The first-ever Legislative Summit is a major component of the Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) Annual Aftermarket Distribution Summit.
Ferro has led FMCSA since 2009. Prior to that, she was president & CEO of the Maryland Motor Truck Assn. Ferro plans to speak on the priorities, both near-term and long-term, of FMCSA in its quest to improve commercial truck safety.
Gerlach is a five-term Republican and a member of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. He will address issues facing Congress, including tax issues that are likely to come before the committee.
Sponsored by the Heavy Duty Distribution Assn. (HDDA) and CVSN, the Heavy Duty Legislative Summit will provide attendees the opportunity to meet one-on-one with their elected officials and staff to discuss industry issues from their own perspective. The first day of the summit on Sept. 20 will include an issue briefing from 3-5 p.m., where attendees will hear from Gerlach and Ferro, and be fully briefed on the issues that will be discussed with the legislators. Attendees will then spend the next day meeting with their elected officials.
