2019 OPMCA Member Day at the Capitol
Tuesday April 23rd, 2019
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Nothing you do is more important for your business, your industry and your association. Please join us at the 2019 OPMCA Member Day at the Capitol and register today!

Please join OPMCA as we host a Member Day at the Capitol! We want to get you in front of legislators from your district to create more influence in stopping some of the proposals that are aimed at our industry. We will provide an issue briefing, talking points, and assist in getting you to your legislators.

All OPMCA members - especially Board members, Marketers members, C-store members, Associate members and Partner members - should attend and bring key employees, family members and prospective members. The more bodies walking the Capitol halls, the better!

Lunch will be served and there is no charge to attend OPMCA's Member Day at the Capitol. However, we need to know if you will be attending so that we can order an appropriate number of meals and have your name badge printed and ready for this event.

Make sure to bring plenty of business cards to leave with your elected officials.

If you have any questions, please contact the OPMCA office.
Thank you for actively participating in YOUR Association!

Reminder: U.S. DOT Random Drug and Alcohol Test Rates for 2019
Each year the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) sets the minimum employee random drug and alcohol testing rates that employers must incorporate into their driver and HAZMAT employee drug testing program. The test rates are the minimum percentage of employees who are subject to U.S. DOT drug and alcohol requirements who must undergo a random test during the upcoming calendar year. The number of random tests conducted by employers for 2019 must equal at least 25 percent for drugs and 10 percent for alcohol. These are the same rates required in 2018.
