Notice of meeting/forum.


FMCSA's Office of Analysis, Research, and Technology (ART) invites interested persons to participate in a forum regarding updating it's 5-Year Strategic Plan (2010-2015). FMCSA is seeking input from industry leaders via two public Stakeholder Forums in order to identify and discuss key safety related challenges and opportunities facing the motor carrier industry, and to solicit ideas on research objectives that FMCSA should consider in developing it's strategic plan—as well as on potential projects and programs that would help meet those safety research objectives. As a participant in the forum, attendees will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed mission, vision and strategic objectives (goals) for the 5-Year Strategic Plan, and provide any additional insights they feel will be important to the FMCSA.
