FLA The presidents of the Florida associations at CD’s 2014 show (L to R): WFLA President Dave Shaw of Network Limousines, FLA President Rick Versace of A1A Airport & Limousine Service, GOLA President Cliff Wright of Royal Transportation Group, and SFLA President Neil Goodman of Aventura Worldwide Transportation Service MLOA Members of MLOA’s Board of Directors at the 2014 CD Show (L to R): Treasurer Travis Latham of Fellowship Fleet Limousine & Bus Company, Secretary Regina Goff of A Goff Limousine & Bus Company, Second Vice Chairman Reggie Tymus of Capital City Limousine, and President Maurice Brewster of Mosaic Global Transportation Miami — When the Chauffeur Driven Show touches down at Loews Miami Beach October 11-14, two associations’ hour-long membership meetings will be among its many offerings.

The first major industry show to come to The Sunshine State will also give the Florida Limousine Association (FLA) and the regional associations under its banner—the Greater Orlando Limousine Association, the South Florida Limousine Association, and the West Florida Livery Association—meeting space on Monday, October 12, at 8:30 a.m. As operators all over Florida are fighting a range of TNC battles, there will be much to discuss about how each region is seeking a level playing field for the industry and better regulatory practices for TNCs across the state.

The Minority Limousine Operators of America (MLOA) will also hold a morning meeting, bringing together its far-flung membership with an 8 a.m. meeting on Tuesday, October 13. As the association frequently relies on bimonthly conference calls to stay in contact with its members, MLOA will take advantage of having much of its association in one place with educational opportunities, including a guest speaker. Sheila Bright, a recently retired corporate supplier diversity director, will discuss ways that minority operators can gain access to large contracts, as well as hold one-on-one sessions with MLOA members on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each association meeting is open to all registered show attendees.
