BOWIE, Md. (March 12, 2014) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is now accepting nominations for its 2014-2015 board of directors.
TIA said members in good standing or official representatives of industry associations may recommend candidates to the Nominating Committee, and self-nominations also are welcome.
Board positions are open to all TIA members who have been in good standing for at least two consecutive years, according to the association. Independent tire dealers, tire manufacturers, wholesale distributors, suppliers, recyclers and retreaders are eligible.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
