The National Limousine Association (NLA) is ensuring that a dozen new operators will have the opportunity to networking and learn with their peers at the upcoming CD/NLA Show in Las Vegas this March 27-30. Through its NLA Scholarship Program, the association offers a chance for newer operators to attend their first show by providing a full show pass, a three-night stay at the show’s host property (Paris Hotel), and a one-year membership to the NLA. The Scholarship Committee, co-chaired by Kevin Illingworth of Classique Worldwide Transportation and Joe Reinhardt of Carolina Limo & Coach, chose the winners from nearly three dozen applicants. They are:
Carlos Alvarez of Boulder Transport

The announcement was made by NLA President Robert Alexander of RMA Worldwide in his weekly membership letter.
“The NLA has always been committed to ushering new operators into the industry through education, mentorship, and support. One of the ways we do this is through the NLA Scholarship Program, which enables operators to attend their first CD/NLA Show where they can take advantage of networking, education, and more. Thank you to the whole committee for their dedication and care of this important program,” said Alexander in the letter.
In other news, the NLA also announced that registration is open for its annual Day on the Hill, scheduled for May 11-12 in Washington, D.C. During the in-person event, the first since 2019, NLA members will meet with their elected representatives to educate them on the issues and concerns facing our industry.
