MARLTON, N.J. --  Eighteen new and returning NLA board directors who will take their seats on Feb. 12 will be leading a governing body that sets the standards for, and pursues the interests of, the global chauffeured transportation industry.

The 2012 NLA Board of Directors are:

  • Robert Alexander (RMA Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation, Rockville, Md.)
  • Richard Azzolino (Gateway Limousines Worldwide, Burlingame, Calif.)

The 2012 Board of Directors will choose the organization’s officers for 2012-13 from among its 18-member peer group at the Feb. 12 meeting to be held at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

The NLA, founded in 1985, is the oldest, most effective limousine industry assocation in the U.S. with the broadest membership base of operators and vendors.
