For Immediate Release

June 26, 2017: Milton, ON:  The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) wrapped up its annual conference June 16th at the Crowne Plaza in Niagara Falls.

This year’s event was a big success, especially for the PMTC Young Leaders Group (YLG).

Wednesday afternoon saw members of the YLG participate in a team building activity at a local Escape Room completing the "Missing Finger" game.

Following the Escape Room, the YLG hosted the first networking reception of the conference. Over 50 guests were in attendance including YLG members, conference speakers, sponsors and PMTC board members.

Thursday saw the YLG sponsor a seminar on autonomous trucks which featured a panel hosted by Lou Smyrlis of Truck News. Following the seminar, the YLG provided its CITT bursary to Andre Parent of Superior Propane and Edwin Chestnut of Sleeman Breweries.

Next up, a promotional video about the YLG and the transportation industry was shown to conference delegates and has received great reviews. See below a link to this video. Please share with and promote to your contacts and across your social media networks.

More recently, the YLG launched a new logo design and brand concept with a fresh look and feel.

In the coming weeks, the YLG will announce plans for its September education and networking event.

“Team building and networking are core to the YLG’s foundation and these events were no exception. Excellent teamwork and problem solving for the escape room. That was followed by an incredible turn out for the reception” said Executive Director of the YLG Mike Colwell.

"The PMTC Young Leaders Group is really building momentum and are poised to do great things in our industry. The networking, education and leadership skills that can be gained by being part of this group are invaluable" stated PMTC President Mike Millian. Get out. Get Involved. Get Inspired.
