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.
