A Truckers Wife Convention 2006
Convention Sponsor Information
I am writing representing an online community of strong women,
atruckerswife.com. We are a community of women, founded by women, supported by
women and managed by women. We are from households all over the map. We are
American. We are Australian. We are Canadian. We are wives, mothers, and
significant others. We have one important element in common: we are trucker's
A trucker's wife is a woman like no other. We have learned to be independent.
We have learned to be flexible. We have learned to fill traditionally male roles
like fixing household appliances and servicing our own vehicles. We have, as a
result, learned to ‘wear the pants’ in our households without robbing our
truckers of their manliness.
We face struggles and stereotypes that would deter many women from our chosen
lifestyle. Our husbands may be gone for days or weeks at a time. Outsiders
question the strength of our marriages. Many of us manage our households,
marriages, jobs and children while our men are miles and miles away from home.
Some of our truckers are only a few miles from home while some are as far away
In response to our daily challenges, we have gathered together at
atruckerswife.com to share resources, impart wisdom, and solicit advice. What we
have fostered in our online community is a sense of belonging, a place to go for
comfort & laughter and most importantly, an atmosphere of real friendship. We
have become a large, online extended family. Since our inception, we have grown
to a community of 294 members. Our ’family’ continues to grow every day.
Many of us who live in proximity to each other have had occasion to meet for
coffee and conversation. Many of us have stumbled upon friendships that will
last a lifetime. This year, we are organizing A Truckers Wife Convention 2006 in
the hopes that the majority our ’family’ can meet in Green Bay, Wisconsin as an
auxiliary conference to the Titletown Trucker’s Showdown in July 2006.
We are a wholly non-profit group. We are all paying out of our own pockets for
travel, lodging and other expenses. Many of us are traveling hundreds of miles
to attend the conference. We would like to see your company name on our
promotional materials and T-shirts. Sponsor company names will also appear in a
program to be distributed to all who attend A Truckers Wife Convention 2006.
Additionally, there is promotional space available on our website. You may
