Lexington, KY – At its October 11 meeting, the Forest Resources Association’s Appalachian Region honored Candee Blevins with its First Place Technical Writing Award for 2018. This annual award recognizes the best Technical Releases published and posted on FRA’s website.

Candee Blevins is the general manager for Glockner Insurance in Portsmouth, Ohio. She wrote Technical Release 17-R-23, Pre-Compliance Review Info Sheet for Trucking Operations.

It lists and explains the key items that DOT trucking compliance officers look at when conducting a trucking regulations compliance review. The detailed Technical Release gives trucking company managers a clear sense of the types of documents they should review in advance and have ready in the event of a DOT safety audit of their business.
