New year, new horizons to conquer for Transport Women Australia Limited. We begin the year with a new website, continue with the new ‘Living the Dream’ campaign, have a new partnership soon to be announced and as always are looking for more funding.
We have our first ever event in Goulburn on January 31, we have all International Women’s Day events in the planning stages, with Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Wollongong as well as Dubbo, Shepparton and Launceston taking place.
We will also have a table at the QTA IWD breakfast. Invitations are set to be ready next week for all events, and we look forward to seeing you there. Speakers to be announced as they are confirmed, and as always, we will have an entertaining line-up for you. Tickets are also available for the Brisbane Truck Show breakfast and bookings have started coming in, so do not miss out. Coralie Chapman, the TWAL vice chair, is looking forward to getting back to the truck show and hosting this event.
An exciting new event to look forward to is the inaugural Transport Women Unite Red Ball to be held in Alice Springs on May 6. We are so looking forward to holding this event with the National Road Transport Hall of Fame. Tickets are already selling for this event and are available through the Hall of Fame website.
We have a great band lined up, a new inaugural award to be presented, a great guest speaker with Ellen Voie, the founder and president of Women in Trucking USA. This is a not to be missed event, so book those flights and that accommodation now. We look forward to seeing everyone there for a night of entertainment and dancing. There will be prizes for best dressed male and female, so do not forget to wear something red.
We will be on stage at CeMAT Sydney and planning a function during the event. We will have team members attending the Road Freight NSW conference and the ATA Trucking Australia event. Obviously, we will have our pre-ATA Trucking Australia luncheon, bookings for that will be available soon. We will also be nominating members for awards at both these conferences, so if you would like to have us nominate you or want to recommend someone for a nomination, please be in touch as soon as possible.
We like to nominate members for awards wherever possible to showcase the transport and logistics industry, to show those entering or thinking about entering the industry that there are role models available for them to emulate.
We will roll out the version two of our ‘Living the Dream’ video and the song is already playing on Australian Truck Radio and it should be on other radio stations soon, plus, hopefully available through a streaming service like Spotify, we will announce this on social media as soon as it becomes available. We are so proud of this campaign.
We will be continuing and expanding our existing initiatives throughout the year and hopefully launching some new ones. We look forward to sharing them with you.
