On Wednesday, June 14, the Philadelphia Regional Livery Association (PRLA) hosted their quarterly membership meeting at La Stalla Italian Restaurant in Newtown, Pa. Sponsored by Advantage Remarketing Solutions, the dinner event welcomed 35 members and guests from across the tri-state area, including CD President Chris Weiss.
The meeting served to welcome returning PRLA President Tony Viscusi of Global Limousine into the position. Previous President Johnny Donohoe of Sterling Limousine recently stepped down from the role, citing family responsibilities, according to PRLA Secretary Tracy Salinger of Unique Limousine. A full election of the Board of Directors is planned for the next PRLA meeting in the fall.
“We’re thrilled to have Tony step up from his role as vice president and serve as president once again,” says Salinger. “We wish Johnny all the best with everything.”
The organization welcomed a few speakers to the event, including Darren Martin of Advantage Remarketing Solutions. He spoke briefly about the services his company offers and stated his intention to return to the next PRLA meeting for a further deep dive. Salinger also spoke about the basics of self-funding vehicles.
“There’s not a lot of companies that do that. I didn’t realize we were unique in this way, pardon the pun. This is a way people can feed themselves, and why shouldn’t they help themselves instead of the bank,” says Salinger.
Other matters discussed included an update of JFK Airport courtesy of Ron Robinson of Sterling Limousine, and, of course, the recent collapse of Interstate 95 in Northeast Philadelphia.
