The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) has canceled this year’s North American Inspectors Championship (NAIC), which was scheduled to take place in August in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
NAIC is an annual CVSA competition and training event that trains, tests, recognizes and awards commercial motor vehicle inspector excellence. Each jurisdiction sends its best commercial motor vehicle inspector to compete against top inspectors from other jurisdictions throughout Canada, Mexico and the U.S.
NAIC is held concurrently with the American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) National Truck Driving Championships and National Step Van Driving Championships, including a combined driver and inspector awards ceremony. Due to ATA’s recent announcement that this year’s national driver competition has been canceled, the CVSA Board of Directors and NAIC program leadership made the decision to cancel the inspector competition.
CVSA’s next event, the CVSA Annual Conference and Exhibition, is still scheduled to take place in-person Aug. 29-Sept. 2 in Wilmington, Delaware. And next year’s NAIC is still set for Aug. 15-19, 2022, in Indianapolis, Indiana. However, CVSA will continue to closely monitor the pandemic and the vaccination rollout and will inform the membership of any other upcoming event changes.
