2017 LED Initiative

The Leading Every Day (LED) Initiative is a unique opportunity for NAPT members to take their professional skill sets to the next level. It is the goal of the LED program to attract current and future leaders, bring them together in a collaborative setting, and provide the knowledge and tools necessary to carry out their common mission to be world-class professionals who are looked to as models for our industry. 

One of our industry's greatest challenges is the driver shortage, and as a follow up to the survey we conducted last fall with our partners at School Bus Fleet, the LED program will further explore the driver shortage. Throughout the 6-session series we will discuss strategies for managing the challenge in light of advancing technology and new ways of doing business. Each session will guide us as current and emerging leaders to think more strategically about recruiting and retaining drivers and other transportation staff, all aimed at driving value for you and your organization.
