December 6, 2021 - Marriott Marquis, Houston, TX 

ILTA’s Terminal Operating Practices Symposium (TOPS) is an educational series designed to provide terminal operators a forum to exchange lessons learned from facility incidents and near hits and discuss effective operating practices with their peers.

Presentations are provided by terminal operator employees who will share their experiences in addressing natural disasters, environmental releases, malfunctions, worker injuries and illnesses, near misses/hits and other abnormal operating events at their facilities. They will discuss the causes of these events and what was changed to mitigate or eliminate future occurrences. Each presentation is approximately 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for Q&A.

Industry Event for Industry
The symposium is for terminal operating company personnel ONLY. No service providers, vendors, consultants, members of the press, regulators or the public will be allowed to participate in the event. There may be times when an outside party has significant information to share with the industry (e.g., U.S. CSB), in which case that party may be allowed to attend only to make a presentation. Consultants representing Terminal Members may be allowed to attend so long as an officer of a terminal company (e.g., President, CEO, Vice President, General Manager) makes a request in writing to ILTA requesting an exception.
