The Iowa Motor Truck Association was formed in 1942. The organization was formed because a group of motor carriers felt that Iowa’s trucking industry needed a voice at the State Capitol. The organization quickly flourished and has been a respected and recognized association since its inception.
The association not only is the recognized voice of trucking, it is also a valued business partner to its members through the variety of membership benefits that are offered by the association. Currently the Iowa Motor Truck Association has over 700 member companies and the organization continues to work on strengthening its foundation by enrolling additional members.
The Iowa Motor Truck Association is headquartered in Des Moines at the foot of the State Capitol. In 1996, Iowa’s trucking industry further illustrated its confidence and leadership by purchasing land at the foot of the Capitol and constructing a 10,000 square foot office building. The Iowa Motor Truck
Association office building has been heavily utilized by business groups, legislative leaders and association members. The building features a 50 seat conference center, a 15 seat board room and a spacious atrium area that features a beautiful view of the golden dome of the Iowa State Capitol. The headquarters building is a source of growing pride for the IMTA membership.
Volunteer involvement is the strength of the association and through IMTA’s committee structure, members can get involved in a number of activities and make valuable contributions to the association’s continual efforts to fulfilling its overall mission. Because of the value of people’s time, IMTA has a minimal amount of committees, however, they are always looking for opportunities to get the members involved and the current committee structure allows that.
