Newton named to ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee

Arkansas Trucking Association President Shannon Newton was recently named to the American Transportation Research Institute 2019-2020 Research Advisory Committee (RAC). Among other activities, ATRI's RAC is responsible for annually identifying the top research priorities for the trucking industry.

RAC members represent a diverse cross-section of trucking industry stakeholders including motor carriers, industry suppliers, commercial drivers, shippers, law enforcement, academia and government.

“We use the research conducted by ATRI to inform the agenda of Arkansas Trucking Association and to educate our policy makers every day,” says Newton. “It is an honor to serve on the Research Advisory Committee and have a voice in the direction of trucking’s research next year.”

Ms. Karen Rasmussen, Chief Executive Officer of HELP, Inc., was reappointed to serve as Chair of the RAC. 

"RAC members serve a critical role in developing and prioritizing research proposals that address the trucking industry's top challenges. Congratulations to those appointed by the ATRI Board to serve in this important role and we look forward to working with them," said Rebecca Brewster, ATRI President and COO.
