   Hello from Oklahoma!  It is the pleasure of Central Technology Center Transportation & Safety Education to host the 2014 Region 4 Conference on Thursday, October 23 and Friday, October 24.  Thursday’s activities will be held on the Drumright Campus of Central Technology Center and the Friday morning sessions will be held at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Jenks, OK (transportation will be provided from Jenks to Drumright and back). We hope you plan on joining us for this time of education and discussion.

   We look forward to input from our sister schools, trucking company representatives, and other invitees. Our speakers include Robert McClanahan, Executive Director of NAPFTDS; Kylla Leeburg, Midwest Director of Truckers Against Trafficking; and updates from the Department of Public Safety and Oklahoma Trucking Association. We are also looking at a mini Train-the-Trainer session and other speakers that are in the works.

   We also want to discuss how we can work better with the carriers and what we can do for them; what funding you rely on (self-pay, WFO/WIA, company sponsored, veterans, etc.); and other issues that may be affecting your enrollment and/or placement.

   A block of rooms has been reserved at the Holiday Inn Express, 150 Aquarium Drive, Jenks, OK, for Wednesday and Thursday nights, October 22-23, with a rate of $89.99. Reservations must be made by October 1st in order to secure the group rate. You can make your reservation by calling 918-296-7300. Be sure to identify yourselves as being part of Central Tech Region 4. If you have any special needs, please be sure and let them know. Call early to take advantage!

   If you would like to stay later at the non-group rate of $119.00, there are numerous venues to take in. Located next door is the OKLAHOMA AQUARIUM…the only ‘indoor’ ocean in Oklahoma! Bull and Lemon Sharks…the largest in captivity! View over 300 exhibits for an education you’ll never forget. All ages will find it fascinating.

   Also adjacent to the hotel is THE RIVERWALK CROSSING…Northeastern Oklahoma’s only riverfront district. Specialty shops, great eating establishments, live music or the newest movie at the theater – all overlooking the Arkansas River. All these great amenities are within walking distance from the hotel.  (For more attractions check out www.visittulsa.com and www.travelok.com.)

   We look forward to seeing you in October!
