2022 NATERA Conference: "The Future of Work: 2022 and Beyond"

Anyone who has worked in HR, Labor Relations, or Legal in the Transportation Industry for a while knows that the pace of change in our industry has greatly accelerated in the last several years, and that this trend will continue as we enter 2022.

For our next conference, we want to focus on how these changes affect those of us that work in the transportation industry, what the future may hold, and how we can adapt and succeed as we face emerging challenges.

With that goal in mind, our 2022 conference will feature speakers and sessions designed to provide valuable information, insights, and training to our attendees who work in the Human Resources, Labor Relations, and Legal space in the transportation industry.
