*Optional* - Saturday Night Awards Banquet Ticket - $59
Each year, the Ohio Trucking Association brings together a group of talented drivers and technicians to compete at the annual Truck Driving Championships’ and Technician Competition. This year’s competition will be May 17-18 at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky.
In order to keep these events running smoothly, OTA relies on volunteers to assist with numerous tasks including set up, moving equipment, timing, and tear down. There will be a mandatory volunteer meeting each day to cover the specific aspects of your volunteer position, as well as a training available via webinar and on the first competition day.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the following form. Please note that breakfast and lunch will be provided for all volunteers the day(s) you work; however, there is an additional charge to attend the awards banquet on Saturday night. Banquet tickets can be purchased below. If your banquet ticket it being purchased through your company representative, please pick up your ticket from them prior to the banquet.
