BMBG Announces Call for Business Member Nominations
The APTA Business Member Board of Governors (BMBG) Nominating Committee is accepting nominations until 5 p.m. Eastern time March 26 from individuals interested in representing APTA’s private sector members in leadership positions. The nomination form and information can be found online; no late submissions will be accepted.
The committee will select APTA business members to fill the following positions this year:
* Twelve members to serve two-year terms on BMBG;
* The BMBG chair, first vice chair, and second vice chair; and
* Other positions on the BMBG that might become vacant during 2010.
All these positions will become effective at the end of the 2010 APTA Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX, in October. The BMBG will hold the election on the slate of nominees Monday, June 7, during the APTA Rail Conference in Vancouver, BC.
The BMBG sets the course and direction for APTA business member activities and normally meets four times per year, usually in conjunction with major APTA meetings.
In previous years, the BMBG also sought nominations for the business member positions on the APTA Board of Directors at this time. This year, the BMBG anticipates that these nominations will be submitted directly to the APTA Nominating Committee in June 2010, reflecting changes in the APTA bylaws.
The committee will take into account BMBG and APTA participation.
Delon Hampton, immediate past chair of the BMBG, chairs the committee. Its members include Pat Biedar, Jeff Boothe, Raul Bravo, and Pat Scully.
Information regarding the nomination process is available from Fran Hooper, APTA’s BMBG staff advisor.
