A Message from THE STAK President

All, 

The details have been finalized.  Registration for the Summer Conference 2023 – “Back Together Again” is now live, online!  When registering, a separate registration needs to be completed for each individual as t-shirt size and color must be chosen.  Completion of the online registration lets us know you are planning to attend.  You will still need to register during the regular conference registration so that you can receive conference materials.

In-person registration will take place on the afternoon of June 20, 2023 at Christian County Middle School, from 2-5PM.  Registration will be open the following morning on June 21st from 7AM-9AM.  All classes will take place on the same campus as the registration with the exception of the technician classes.  Stay tuned for more information regarding technician classes.

For those that do not want to drive from the hotel to the site, shuttle service will be provided by Christian County Public Schools.  The shuttle service is not a continuous operation, meaning the service will be provided once in the morning and at the conclusion of the day’s events.  There will be no intermittent shuttle service throughout the day.  As attendees register in-person, your intent to use the shuttle will be verified, and pick-up times will be provided.  Lunch will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.  As a reminder, to take advantage of hotel room blocks and rates, attendees are encouraged to register prior to May 10, 2023.  Attendees can register at the following hotels:

  • La Quinta Inn and Suites – 345 Griffin Bell Drive, Hopkinsville, KY – 270-632-6140 – Rates are $99 each night plus tax;
  • Hampton Inn and Suites – 210 Richard Mills Drive, Hopkinsville, KY – 270-886-8800 – Rates are $129 regular each night plus tax, $149 each night for suite plus tax;
  • Comfort Inn and Suites – 210 Harvey Way, Hopkinsville, KY – 270-632-0031 – Rates are $109 each night plus tax;
  • TownePlace Suites by Marriott – 220 Richard Mills Road, Hopkinsville, KY – 270-887-2509 – Rates are $129 regular each night plus tax, $149 each night for suite plus tax;
  • Holiday Inn and Suites – 100 Tilley Way, Hopkinsville, KY – 844-361-1949 – Rates are $109 each night plus tax.


Each hotel provides free breakfast each morning.

While this year’s site location is different than what past attendees are accustomed to, please do not let that discourage you from attending.  We are working hard to ensure this is one of the best conferences you will ever attend.

Within the next couple of months, we will reach out to you again regarding nominations for STAK awards (Rookie Transportation Director of the Year, Best Training Department, etc.).

Until next time,
