    The Virginia Trucking Association and the Safety & Human Resources Council will

    be hosting educational meetings in east and west locations. 


    In the October meetings the topic of the Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse will be discussed by FMCSA and Nationwide Testing Association.  Both will be providing valuable information on the upcoming regulation.


    The Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse will improve highway safety by helping employers, FMCSA, State Driver Licensing Agencies, and State law enforcement to quickly and efficiently identify drivers who are not legally permitted to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) due to drug and alcohol program violations. This secure online database will provide access to real-time information, ensuring that drivers committing these violations complete the necessary steps before getting back behind the wheel, or performing any other safety-sensitive function.


    The program will start at 10:00 am with a question and answer session to adjourn

    at approximately 12:30 pm.  


    The registration fee for each meeting is $25 per person, which includes a box

    lunch and refreshments. Please register online at www.vatrucking.org.


    If you have any questions please contact Robyn Bolton at rbolton@vatrucking.org.
