Thurs., Oct. 24, 2019: How Electronic Logging Devices Impact Hours of Service:

This summer, the FMCSA proposed revisions to the Hours of Service (HOS) regulations, and after December 16, 2019, all motor carriers and drivers subject to the ELD rule will be required to use electronic logging devices (ELDs) to record hours-of-service data.
All commercial fleets, drivers, and managers need to understand the regulations and how it applies to them.
 Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the revisions to the HOS regulations
  • Understand the ELD mandate and timeline
  • Determine how to select an appropriate ELD device
  • Implement an ELD program in your fleet
  • The Enforcement Division at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

Thurs., Oct. 31, 2019: Marijuana on the Road:

Does legalization mean you need more- or less-frequent drug testing? The legalization of marijuana in several states and in Canada and the federal legislation legalizing hemp and CBD oil have caused great uncertainty for commercial fleets. Drug testing is a huge issue for truck fleets, and, although neither FMCSA nor NHTSA mandate drug testing for light duty vehicles, many organizations are interested in minimizing their liability through proactive testing. DOT experts will weigh in and provide guidance for commercial and light duty fleets.
Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the current regulatory environment
  • Mitigate your risk exposure due to legalization of marijuana
  • Determine the right testing schedule for your drivers
  • Learn whether drug testing might be limited in the future
  • Abigail S. Potter, Manager of Safety & Occupational Health Policy, Policy and Regulatory Affairs, American Trucking Associations

Thurs., Nov. 7, 2019: Defending Your Fleet from Cybersecurity Threats:

Automakers can’t tackle the vehicle cybersecurity challenge alone—they’re just one piece of the connected vehicle ecosystem. Defending your fleet from cyber threats will require Auto-ISAC, heavy- and light-duty vehicle OEMs, suppliers, commercial fleet owners and operators, legislators, security researchers, and other industry partners to work in tandem.  What role can you play in making this happen?
Learning Objectives:
  • Share Cybersecurity best practices
  • Discuss threat detection and attack prevention
  • Discover how vulnerable vehicles are to cyber-attack                                 
  • Suzanne Lightman; Senior Advisor, Information Security; Computer Security Division; National Institute of Standards and Technology 

Thurs., Nov. 14, 2019​: DOT Compliance: Practical Advice on Critical Compliance Issues:

Maintaining compliance with the myriad of federal and state regulations can be daunting even for the most experienced fleet manager. NAFA’s new DOT Reference Guide will provide the insights and advanced techniques necessary to assist organizations in this task. This session on compliance will cover the highlights of the new Reference Guide and act as a preview to the content.
Learning Objectives:
  • Manage International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) and International Registration Plan (IRP) compliance effectively to audit-proof these programs
  • Understand when a fleet must comply with the requirements of the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) and Uniform Carrier Registration Act compliance
  • Review vehicle inspection reporting, permitting, annual DOT inspections and maintaining biennial terminal inspection compliance
