Benefits Of Membership
Access to the Members Only section of our website is one of the many benefits of membership in COSTA. In this section, you will find the latest bulletins from state and federal agencies, legislative alerts, changes in licensing and inspection procedures, and other timely information to keep you informed and operating efficiently. Here. too, is where we keep contact information on all carriers, and a map showing the transportation provider for every town in the state. From this section, you can also download forms and training materials that we provide.
But that is just the beginning. Your membership also keeps you informed with a monthly Newsletter, distribution of DMV policies and regulations, additional monthly publications for drivers and trainers, legislative alerts, and industry surveys. It saves you money on driver histories, DOT and DMV forms, drug and alcohol testing, fleet insurance for owner-operators, and health insurance. It helps you increase safety and ensure compliance through continuing education, certification for driver trainers, training for STV and CDL licenses, use of our video library and other resources, and record audit service. And it ensures your representation at the legislature and all state agencies through our lobbying and government relations, and in the media through our public relations acitivities.
Best of all, your membership in COSTA brings a knowledgable and informed staff who are just a phone call or an email away. We will answer your questions, run down a rumor, solve a problem: do whatever you need to make your operation run smoothly. It's like having a personal troublehooter. And couldn't you use one of those about now?
