In accordance with a congressional mandate stipulated in MAP-21 legislation, the US Department of Transportation will soon require installation and use of Electronic Logging Devices (ELD’s) on all large commercial trucks to record a drivers’ hours of service. This ELD Rule is intended to help create a safer work environment for drivers, and make it easier and more efficient to accurately track, manage, and share ‘Records of Duty Status’ (RODS).
In order to better prepare our members for what action they may be required to take, ACNM has been working in conjunction with the New Mexico Trucking Association to outline specific requirements contained in the Rule, and the means to ensure compliance. We have scheduled a workshop for ACNM members to take place on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at the ACNM Offices, located at 6135 Edith Blvd. NE - Albuquerque, NM 87107 from 9:00am to 2:00pm. The workshop, which will include input from the New Mexico State Police, the Federal Motor Carriers Association, and the New Mexico Trucking Association, will conclude with a full question and answer session with representatives from these agencies.
Space will be limited to the first 30 who register- Please RSVP to Dino at 505-633-6258 or via email at email@example.com to advise who and how many individuals you intend to have attend.

At the last ACNM /NM DOT joint meeting held on October 24th, the following items were discussed and NMDOT committed to provide written clarifications. The clarifications are as follows:
AGC Charities Inc., the charitable arm of AGC of America, will be supporting members of the AGC family and their communities whose lives have been disrupted by the historic Hurricane Maria.
AGC Charities, Inc. supports individuals in need throughout communities across the United States by providing disaster assistance to individuals that have been impacted by a natural or man-made disaster and also provides special assistance to construction craft workers or other construction professionals who fall victim to natural or other catastrophes.
The Charity may provide Special Assistance either to individuals or to organizations, and it may do so either on its own initiative or in response to a request. In the process of granting such assistance, the Charity will not only seek to serve charitable or other humanitarian purposes but also seek to enhance the construction industry’s standing within the communities that it serves.The Charity will grant Special Assistance directly to one or a few individuals only if those individuals or their families have suffered economic or personal hardship in the course of employment in the construction industry or in the process of providing other service to it.
The Charity will grant Special Assistance to many or most of the members of a particular community only if that community merits the special attention of the construction industry on a widely recognizable platform. The Charity expects to channel most of its Special Assistance through organizations already providing Special Assistance to such communities or seeking to enhance the nation’s quality of life in ways that merit the attention of the construction industry.
