Oregon Association Formed

Posted on October 17, 2001 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

The newly-formed Oregon Association is up and running and is also a member of the National Limousine Association (NLA).

?I?m thrilled that they got it up and running again,? said Carolyn Nelson, NLA association liaison. ?It shows that people are concerned about their industry.? Efforts were made in the ?80s to start an Oregon association, but there were no long-term results.

Troy Farmer, owner of Presidential Limousine in Portland, Ore., took it upon himself to organize the association once again.

?I thought it was time to step in and try and bring everyone together as a team," Farmer said. To form the first board of officers, Farmer approached companies that he felt would best benefit the industry. ?Technically, we are an interim board according to the bylaws and code of ethics that were drawn up and according to the NLA,? Farmer said.

The first official association meeting was rescheduled due to the World Trade Center tragedy. Farmer scheduled another meeting date and reports an initial 25 interested members. ?I actually get a lot of grief from some operators because I?m 28 years old, but some of them admire me for stepping up to the plate,? he said.

The following individuals comprise the interim board:

Vice President: John Sinibaldi, Carey Five Star Limousine Service Second Vice President: Chris Casteel, Prestige Limousine Secretary/Treasurer: Tavia Farmer, Presidential Limousine Academic/Safety Director: Tom Apperson, Executive Protection International For more information on the Oregon Association, contact Troy Farmer at (503) 252-4449.
