Education & Events

Supporting Professional Development & Building Relationships

The Iowa Motor Truck Association elevates, enhances, and eloquently tells the positive story of the trucking industry through various educational opportunities and events scheduled throughout the year.  Join us at these opportunities and witness that through these efforts, every aspect of fulfilling IMTA’s mission will be strengthened and reinforced.

The Iowa Motor Truck Association offers these educational seminars and events every year to its members and non-members. The goal of each opportunity is to support continued professional development and build lasting relationships within the trucking industry. 

The Iowa Motor Truck Association staff is evaluating upcoming events & meetings to determine our course of action going forward. We have postponed April events to future dates --- with the exception of webinars.  We will continue to evaluate May events pending the COVID-19 situation.
