* Position on Image Team can be held up to 2 years (consideration given for extension upon re-application)

* Mentor new Image Team members

In order to be eligible, drivers must have an outstanding safety record, be able to speak convincingly about their commitment to safety and represent the trucking industry in a positive light through their appearances and must have been a member of WIT for at least one year. Additional requirements can be found on WIT’s website.

In order to begin the application process, the female driver’s company must complete and return the 2015 Image Application no later than January 31, 2015. The application can be found here.
