Illinois—The Illinois Limousine Association (ILA) held a tele-conference meeting this past January. During this discussion, Paula Debiasi from Chicago CoachWorks was welcomed to the ILA Board. Debiasi replaces Carolyn Carter of Carolyn’s Classic Limousine Service, who stepped down from her position to attend to personal matters.
ILA President Greg Eggan of O’Hare-Midway Limousine Service appointed Art Rento of Ponterelli Limousine Service, Tony Douvlis of Amm’s Limousine Service, and Scott Delheimer of Class Act Transportation Worldwide to the Board Election Committee. Rento will serve as chairman, while Delheimer and Douvlis will act in an advisory capacity in the decision-making process.
ILA members are greatly concerned with the proliferation of Uber in both Chicago and the suburb of Oak Brook. They would like Uber and the other ridesharing apps to adhere to the state’s established limousine code. Eggan has been in contact with the ILA’s legal counsel in regard to this serious matter, but has not received a response as of yet.
It was also decided that the ILA’s annual meeting will take place at White Pines Golf Club in Bensenville, Ill., on May 14, 2014. ILA is actively seeking compelling speakers to inform and enlighten its membership at this event.
