Preliminary Program Schedule

Hosting the conference at the nation's Capital allows us to offer significant updates and training from federal agencies that guide and regulate student transportation safety, environmental health, and access to educational programs.  Agencies scheduled to present include the National Transportation Safety Board, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the Transportation Security Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the US Education Department.

The conference will also feature technology updates from our industry suppliers and best practices training by other presenters.   Conference workshops will include, "Entry Level Driver Training: Are You Ready for 2020?; Lap/shoulder Belts: A Dialogue with State and Federal Policymakers; Zero Loading Zone Fatalities-An Achievable Goal," and many others.

We are also pleased to offer a special Post-conference workshop, on Thursday morning, October 17, hosted by the National Transportation Safety Board.  This workshop will be available at no additional cost to full conference registrants.  It will be held at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, VA (near Dulles Airport).  The morning will feature a TWA Flight 800 tutorial, examination of the reconstruction of the aircraft wreckage, and a discussion on how the NTSB undertakes major crash investigations, including training on professional and compassionate communications with crash victims' families.
