Dear KPTA Members:

Spring is almost over and summer will be here before we know it.

I hope everyone is getting excited about the 2019 KPTA Conference and Expo to be held August 11-16, at the Hyatt Regency in Lexington, Ky.  On Mon. Aug. 12th, we’ll have our Rodeo at the Ky. Horse Park and our golf tournament will be held at Kearney Hill Golf Links.   We ask you to please contact Pam Shepherd if you are interested in either event.  Our Trade Show will be on that Wed. and we already have a tremendous number of vendors who have signed up for the show.  As always we will have many exiting classes and top notch presenters that will bring the best to you in transportation issues.  If you want to be a vendor, or a judge in the rodeo, or enter a golf team, contact Pam Shepherd at 859-233-0066 or at pshepherd@ftsb.org.
