Trucking industry elections now underway

The Australian Trucking Association has announced nominations are now open for the owner-driver and small fleet operator representative positions on the Australian Trucking Association’s General Council.

The election, according to ATA Chair Geoff Crouch, was an opportunity for owner-drivers with one truck and small fleet operators with 2-5 trucks to have their say on the critical issues affecting the trucking industry.

“Our General Council guides the ATAs industry policies and sets our strategic direction,” said Crouch.

“Our owner-driver and small fleet representatives have a direct say on Council and can also join our policy committees,” he said.

Under the rules nominees for the owner-driver position must own, be purchasing or leasing one truck over 4.5 tonnes and drive it, be registered as a voter in ATA elections and be a member of an ATA member association.

If more than one nomination is received in a category, an election will take place in February through an online, secure voting system.

Phil Potterton has been appointed by the ATA as the Independent Returning Officer to conduct the election.

“Whether you choose to register as a voter or run for election, this is a great opportunity to contribute to the ATA’s direction and the Australian trucking industry,” said Crouch.

Nominations and voter registrations close on 31 January.
