American Trucking Associations said it has reached an agreement on a new three-year contract with ATA President Bill Graves.

After serving two terms as governor of Kansas, Graves took the helm of ATA in 2003.

ATA made the announcement earlier this week at its annual Management Conference and Exhibition, held in Grapevine, Texas.

“By retaining Gov. Graves, the members of ATA are sending a strong message: that despite the challenges we face in Washington, the professional staff of ATA is doing an exemplary job of advancing the goals and interests of the trucking industry,� new ATA Chairman Dan England said in a statement.

“That starts at the top with Gov. Graves, and we’re pleased that he’ll be continuing to serve as ATA’s president and CEO for the foreseeable future,� said England, chairman of refrigerated carrier C.R. England Inc., Salt Lake City.

“It has been a privilege to represent such a great industry and I’m honored that ATA’s members are allowing me to continue serving them and their interests in Washington,� Graves said in a statement.

“As the economy continues to slowly recover and policymakers let loose with unprecedented assaults on trucking, there’s never been a more critical time to advocate for the industry that delivers life’s essentials more safely and efficiently than ever before,� Graves said.
