BOWIE, Md. (April 28, 2014) — The deadline for nominations to the 2014-2015 Tire Industry Association (TIA) board of directors is May 1.
TIA said its directors serve for three-year terms and may be re-elected for two additional three-year terms. Any TIA member in good standing or an official representative of an industry association may recommend candidates to the nominating committee in accordance with the TIA bylaws. Members may also self-nominate.
Positions on the TIA Board are open to all TIA members who have been a member in good standing for two consecutive years, the association said, including manufacturers, independent tire dealers, wholesale distributors, suppliers, recyclers and retreaders.
"We invite you to nominate qualified and motivated leaders who are willing to be considered for election to the TIA Board. Our Board members play a critical role in helping TIA strengthen the industry and serving on the TIA Board is very rewarding," said TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.
All nominations should be submitted by completing and returning the TIA Board of Directors nomination form to the TIA office in Bowie. Nominations must be received no later than 5 p.m. EDT on May 1.
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.||
