The NASDPTS Supplier Council Steering Committee is seeking nominations of new member companies by Oct. 1 to fill three spots.
Any company that belongs to the Supplier Council may seek a seat at the table by submitting a business card and relevant information on company letterhead directly to any current member of the nominating committee or the steering committee. Submissions must be received at least 20 days prior to the Supplier Council meeting held during the NASDPTS Annual Conference, scheduled this year for Oct. 24 in Cincinnati.
Eligible nominations for the steering committee must be designated in writing by a company vice president or equivalent executive manager to NASDPTS. The nominating committee then recommends new members to the full steering committee. Nominees are admitted upon a two-thirds vote of approval of all members.
The steering committee consists of a total of 11 members. Two of those seats automatically go to manufacturers of conventional Type C and transit-style Type D school buses. A third seat goes to a bus manufacturer of Type A’s or Type B’s. Office terms are for three years, at which time members can seek re-election. There is no compensation for elected representatives, which must be active in the Supplier Council for at least two years and which have attended every meeting over that period.
Nominations may sent via U.S. mail to:
718 Camarague Place, #206
Lake Mary, FL 32746
Additionally, nominations that fit the above criteria can be addressed to any of the five nominating committee members via e-mail to Harden, Mike Simmons, Paula Bishop, Paul Baczewski, or Charlie Vits.
