In June 2016, the Saskatchewan Trucking Association, Board and Staff undertook a Strategic Planning initiative to set a direction for the Association for the next 3 years and beyond. The outcome has given us a clear path forward and has provided us with a refreshed vision/mission/core values which will be fundamental in driving the future of the Association. Work has already begun on identifying core areas of change and improvement.
