MARLTON, N.J.— Five incumbents and two new operators were voted on to the National Limousine Association Board of Directors, the group said Feb. 6. The board directors will serve 2015-2018 terms starting March 15 when the board meets in Las Vegas just before the International LCT Show.

The following seven operators received the majority of votes in their respective regions out of 21 candidates— a record-breaking number of operators vying for the seven open seats.

 The winners are:

Veteran Ohio operator Steve Qua returns to the NLA board of directors starting March 15. He previously servied two terms in the 2000s.

Qua, who served on the NLA board of directors from 2004 to 2010, and Quinn, who won the open seat held by retiring board director Rich Azzolino, are the two new directors taking seats. Incumbents Jeff Greene, Ron Stein, Michael Campbell, Robert Alexander and Laura Canady retained their seats.

“On behalf of the entire membership, we want to thank each and every candidate this year, as it shows the commitment of our members have to our association,” NLA President Gary Buffo said in a statement. “As many members may not be aware, these elected board members spend hundreds of hours per year and thousands of their dollars travelling on your behalf. It is a true commitment they have made to you, their constituents.”

The NLA marks its 30th anniversary this year.

    Proud to know each and every one of them! Great character, great dedication...with deference to those who did not win, it's hard to argue that our membership will not be well-represented. Congratulations to all!
