NLA Membership Drops 13%

Posted on June 17, 2009 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Limousine Association announced during its quarterly meeting last week that its membership stands at 1,896, down 250 compared to the total in June 2008, for a drop so far of 13%.

The silver lining in that number is that the NLA had anticipated a drop of 25% when it approved its budget guidelines at its quarterly meeting in Huntington Beach, CA on Nov. 13, 2008. Its board of directors was anticipating a drop-off in enrollments in 2009 due to the deepening recession.

In other NLA developments:

• NLA directors will be getting out and among its association members throughout the summer. During the recent board meeting, director Barbara Curtis said members have divided up the list of local association chapters nationwide and are scheduling for each association to be visited by at least one board member who will promote NLA activities, encourage membership, and offer support on local issues.

• The NLA disclosed that not all of its scholarships awarded were used at the 2009 International LCT Show in Las Vegas this year. The scholarship program brings new industry members to the ILCT Show. The NLA is encouraging local associations to take advantage of this program.

• Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the NLA. Activities are being planned for a 25th anniversary celebration.
