HDA Truck Pride Recaps 2024 Annual Meeting

The HDA Truck Pride community celebrated a successful year, marked by the addition of over 130 new locations across North America.

The HDA Truck Pride community recently united in Grapevine, TX, for its Annual Meeting to celebrate a successful year, marked by substantial member expansion and engagement with the addition of over 130 new locations across North America. It also served as a platform for collaboration and fostering positive change for the rest of the year ahead, according to HDA Truck Pride.

The week commenced with a charitable “Toss Up For Love and Hope” Cornhole Tournament to raise funds for Kids Matter International, an organization committed to empowering children in the Grapevine area by providing essential items like clothing, shoes, books, and backpacks, along with educational initiatives, fostering hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Tina Hubbard, president & CEO of HDA Truck Pride, set the tone for the meeting with an inspiring anecdote, “The Story of the Baby Elephant and the Rope.” The narrative illustrates how past experiences or perceived limitations can sometimes hinder progress, emphasizing the importance of breaking free from self-imposed constraints to achieve greater success, Hubbard emphasized.

“Together, we can ‘Be The Change’ needed to help each other break the ropes that are holding us back. And that is why HDA Truck Pride is committed to transforming the commercial vehicle aftermarket into a community that inspires people and businesses to realize their full potential,” Hubbard said.

HDA Truck Pride said it “remains at the forefront, launching new resources and programs that not only bolster the network’s competitiveness and expansion within the market but also enhance accessibility and prominence among national fleets. Additionally, this plays a pivotal role in the recruitment and retention of talent across all facets of the business.”

As the week progressed, enthusiasm for the “Be The Change” mantra prompted action and collaboration between members and suppliers throughout engagement sessions that “delved into critical issues vital to our industry fostering valuable exchange on challenges such as supply chain disruptions, regulatory shifts, the evolving dynamics of talent acquisition and retention, the expansion of online sales channels and effective strategies for digital commerce,” HDA Truck Pride said.

“With the generous backing of HDA Truck Pride supplier partners, notably platinum supporters – Grote, Bendix, and DriV – alongside the unwavering commitment of the entire HDA Truck Pride member network and industry attendees,” HDA Truck Pride said they rallied together for several philanthropic opportunities over the course of the week. As a result, the HDA Truck Pride community raised $35,000 in support of Kids Matter International, protecting future generations to come.

“2023 was a pivotal year for our community, full of new engagement opportunities and growth,” said Hubbard, “As we gaze ahead at the evolving landscape of the trucking industry and its challenges, the HDA Truck Pride network stands poised, ready to ‘Be The Change.’ What barriers will we break next?!”
