Nominations are now open for the 2020-2023 term on the NATM Board of Directors. Would you like to be a part of the future success of NATM or do you know someone that would be a strong leader for the Association?
For more than 30 years, NATM has been fortunate to be guided by committed and visionary members serving on the NATM Board of Directors. It is because of these boards that NATM has a Compliance Verification Program, has been able to respond to issues such as tandem towing and tariff challenges, has created a national campaign to raise awareness of safe trailering and recently has been able to launch a Dealer Affiliation program. Through strategic planning, meaningful discussion and decisive action, the NATM Board is tasked with ensuring that the industry and the Association continues to thrive and grow.
In accordance with the NATM Bylaws, the board of directors calls for nominations from the Association membership. Election of directors takes place by email ballot prior to the annual NATM Convention & Trade Show. Typically, the call for nominations goes out in September. Nominated candidates fill out a questionnaire, which is reviewed by the nominations committee. The nominations committee, chaired by the current vice president, selects a slate of candidates for approval by the board of directors. Ballots are sent to all NATM Regular and Associate Members in December. Regular members (trailer manufacturers) elect the regular member directors and associate members (suppliers/service provider) elect associate member directors.
