ILLBA’s End of Year Party Kicks off A New Association Tradition
Operators from not only Illinois but also Indiana and Wisconsin traveled from their homes and headquarters to spend the evening at the combination educational and social event that covered numerous timely topics while letting everyone in attendance enjoy a festive evening among friends and peers.
ILLBA President Tracy Raimer of Windy City Limousine & Bus thanked all in attendance for their support and hard work throughout a year that left many Chicago-area operators scrambling to first make sense of and later fight an over-reaching bus ordinance that is still a source of frustration for many. But the informational part of the evening gave way to a seminar hosted by Tom Holden of Bus Advisors (formerly of Rose Chauffeured Transportation), who aimed to put money back in operators’ pockets by discussing fuel credit, school transportation credit, and other rebates available to bus operators.
Then it was all about mixing and mingling, with ugly sweaters, light-up accessories, and deliberately gaudy festive holiday attire making it easy to tell who was there to celebrate another successful year of the Illinois association uniting and fighting for the local industry.
ILLBA has already set the date for its 2019 year-end bash—December 10—and continues to have open board meetings, the next of which will be March 13.
