ATA announces elected owner driver and small fleet representatives

The winners of the 2019 Australian Trucking Association (ATA) election have been announced.

Frank Black (Arcidiaco) from Albert Park in South Australia and Angela Welsh from Blaxland East in NSW were named by ATA Returning Officer Phil Potterton, who declared the results today following a 21 day voting period.

Black was elected as the owner driver representative on the ATA General Council.

Angela Welsh was elected as the small fleet representative.

They will each have direct input on Council matters and are eligible to join ATA policy committees.

The election which took place online.

Voting closed at 5pm AEDT on Thursday 28 February.

This year 123 ballots were cast in the election of the owner-driver representative while 49 ballots were cast in the election of the small fleet operator representative.

“The larger number of registered voters and a higher voter turnout than in any previous ATA election are particularly welcome,” said Potterton.

“I consider that the processes for the ATA’s second online election have operated smoothly, effectively and securely,” he said.

Potterton who reviewed the audit trail of votes cast in the poll released them without any details to prevent voters being identified.

The new representatives will take up their roles at the ATA’s 2019 Annual General Meeting, to be held in Perth on Wednesday 3 April in conjunction with Trucking Australia 2019.
