CCMTA AM 2014 : Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators 2014 Annual Meeting - Call for Papers
Call For Papers
CCMTA is the official organization in Canada for coordinating all matters dealing with the administration, regulation and control of motor vehicle transportation and highway safety.
CCMTA's Mission is to champion improved road safety and harmonized driver and motor vehicle related licensing and regulation through a national forum for the development and exchange of public policy and best practices.
CCMTA's national forum is comprised of representatives of all provincial, territorial and federal governments of Canada, who meet twice a year, to make decisions on administration and operational road safety matters through a collective consultative process. It also comprises associates whose expertise and opinions are sought in the development of strategies and programs.
CCMTA's Board of Directors and Standing Committees meet in the fall and at its Annual Meeting in the spring. The CCMTA Annual Meeting provides an excellent opportunity to engage with other stakeholders within the road safety community.
Government members, associates, stakeholders and industry professionals are invited to participate in the Call for Presentation Process in order to help build the educational program.
