June Coalition News

Hello Coalition Members,

I hope you’re all doing well as summer approaches.

I have quite a bit of information to share on the Coalition front so let’s get started.

We had a successful trip to Las Vegas at the American Towman Show. Since this was our first attempt at running an exhibit we were not sure what to expect but were satisfied with the results. We handed out many membership applications and spoke to a large segment of towers about our video and our safety awareness campaign. I want to thank Bob Matson, Robert Inskeep, Craig Baker, Brian Banks, Tina and Roger Espinosa for all of their hard work in manning the booth, walking the floor to talk to vendors and signing up corporate sponsors. We received pledges of $5k each from three corporations. Millers Industries made the commitment and paid during the tow show. Thank you Randy Olson and Miller Industries for your commitment to our cause at the UCMCS and to the safety of the industry.

American Towman magazine sat us down for an interview during the show that will be published in their July edition. In all we believe it was a successful endeavor for your Coalition. Next up is the Tow Summit in New Orleans July 15th, 16th and 17th. If you decide to attend, look for us. Myself, Craig Baker, Brian Banks and Mark Lenz from Civic Center Tow will be there.

I have been sending off to our membership these information emails about once a month and will continue to do so, but there is a lot of activity on the Coalition’s Face Book page. We seem to be posting articles or newsworthy items about once a week. We currently have 361 likes on our page and are looking for more! Some of our postings do end up as updated news to our website but some do not. Social media is where we will continue to establish our presence. If you haven’t already, please visit our page, follow and like.

June is National Safety Month and our PR group Ground Floor is working diligently and reaching out to over 150 public safety and transportation organization statewide for this month’s rollout. This week our message and video was shared on over 80 police officers associations Face Book pages, with more to come. Thanks again to Ground Floor for helping spread the word on our Coalition and safety!
