“Many of NPCA’s members are familiar with SC&RA and attend meetings like the Transportation Symposium,” said NPCA President, Bill Wegrzyn. “Becoming official members of SC&RA opens the door for communication and collaboration on broad industry issues that impact us all.”
“These meetings create wonderful networking opportunities, and give individuals a chance to learn about changes within the industry. Among the topics covered at the symposium were permitting harmonization, safety, regulations, compliance, and pressing topics in specialized transportation," said Wegrzyn.
The National Pilot Car Association Board of Directors consists of six officers and eight regional directors, which is responsible for association management and general practices. The association is currently seeking volunteers for several Regional Director Positions in the West, Southeast, and North Central.

NPCA members want to make our highways safe as we move bigger loads. Our membership includes pilot/escort vehicle operators (P/EVOs), insurance professionals, motor carriers, commercial truck drivers, and ordinary citizens.
NPCA is the “go-to” organization for advice about the safe and efficient movement of oversize loads. We are committed to developing lasting relationships with lawmakers and regulators around the country so that new rules, regulations, and laws are written with input from the pilot car industry.
