NTTC will be holding its 60th Annual Basic Leadership Development Seminar on the campus of Purdue University, in West Lafayette, IN, November 15-18, 2015.  Attendees will stay on campus at Purdue’s Union Club.  Professor Rodney Vandeveer, of Purdue’s Organizational Leadership and Supervision Department, will oversee the program.  You are urged to register early, as a large turnout is again expected.

Offered this year will be the Basic Course. The Basic Course Level will include intensive study of management techniques.  Some of the topics being covered will include Communications, Managing Conflict, Counseling and Discipline, Leadership, Your Motivational Task and Role, Conflict Management, and Building Effective and Winning Teams.  (Please see the enclosed course flyer).  The agenda this year will commence with an opening reception, dinner, and tank truck industry update on the evening of Sunday, November 15th.   Classes will be conducted during the days of Monday, November 16th through Wednesday, November 18th.

Graduation ceremonies will be conducted during the banquet on Wednesday evening.  These evening sessions have proven a valuable opportunity for students to exchange information and views on what they have learned at Purdue, and on mutual challenges they face within the tank truck industry.

We urge you to consider sending promising personnel within your company to these seminars for the educational experiences that take place during the four-day session.  Now in its 60th consecutive year, this management workshop has given many employees, as well as employers, multiple benefits.  The cost and time away from the job are justified, as the seminars are a way of showing your promising people that you are interested in them and their development within your company.
