Former OOIDA staffer named ATA’s legislative Senior VP

Mike Joyce, a veteran of Capitol Hill who served as director of legislative affairs for the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association between 2005 and 2010, has been named the American Trucking Associations’ senior vice president of legislative affairs.

“Mike is well-known and respected in the halls of Congress and in our industry,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves, “and we are tremendously pleased that he will be part of the ATA family going forward.”

Joyce most recently worked as director of government relations for Paccar. He has also worked for Congressman Bud Shuster (R-Penn.), Congressman Bill Shuster (R-Penn.), and Mac Collins (R-Ga.).

“Trucking is the backbone of our nation’s economy,” Joyce said. “I’m excited about the opportunities to harness the tremendous expertise and resources of the ATA; picking up the tradition of being a robust and active voice in promoting our dynamic industry among policy makers, regulators, and the general public, both in Washington, D.C. and the state level.”
