Clapp, Janke Highlight NPTC Annual Conference

Alexandria, VA – The National Private Truck Council (NPTC) is pleased to announce two exciting keynote speakers for its 2002 Annual Education/Management Conference and Exhibition scheduled for April 28-30 in Austin, Texas.

The Honorable Joseph M. Clapp, Administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Michael Janke, veteran Navy SEAL and CIA operative, will be featured at NPTC's 13th Annual Event at the Austin Convention Center.

President George W. Bush appointed Mr. Clapp the first Administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on October 4, 2001. FMCSA is one of nine administrations within the U.S. Department of Transportation and the first major new agency created by Congress in more than 30 years. The agency is solely dedicated to improving truck and bus safety on the nation's highways.

Mr. Clapp began his career in transportation in 1959 with Ryder Tank Lines. He joined Roadway Express in 1967 and became Chief Executive Officer and Chairman in 1987. Mr. Clapp retired from Roadway Services, Inc. in 1995.

Michael Janke, founder of Special Operations Consulting, is a highly decorated Navy SEAL and former CIA operative. His dramatic presentations not only give the individual tools and information for improving performances, but also have helped some of the world's largest companies dominate their industries. Mr. Janke inspires his audiences to develop the "Predators' Mindset" for business, customer service, sales and leadership.

NPTC 2002 offers a state-of-the-art exhibition, numerous business-networking opportunities, the prestigious Bridgestone/Firestone Driver Hall of Fame, over 25 educational workshops including two unique sessions on transportation security, a special gathering for "Women in Transportation," and many more events exclusive to NPTC 2002.
