Scottsdale, Az. — The Arizona Limousine Association (ALA) recently held a membership meeting on June 14 at Certified Benz and Beemer. Twenty-seven members were in attendance for the event, which included the announcement of a new board of directors.

The meeting was facilitated by acting president Steve Kaplan of The Driver Provider, who opened the meeting with a membership update. Kaplan reported that ALA now includes 32 transportation companies and 6 vendor members among its ranks.

Chief among Kaplan’s industry updates was the recent City Council hearing in Phoenix, which approved TNC pickups at the city’s airports. While ALA was understandably displeased with the results, they hope that the group’s presence will increase along with their membership, ultimately allowing them to fight harder.

Next, ALA Administrator Joe Guinn of Limo & Bus Compliance gave the group a presentation about the importance of DOT compliance in the industry. He provided an overview of the requirements for receiving MC and DOT numbers on vehicles.

After Guinn concluded, the 10-member board of directors was then announced. They are Kelly Alderete of Xtreme Limousine, Andrew Boorse of Transtyle Transportation, Keith Clifton of Desert Knights Sedans and Limousines, Jeff Conly of Vitesse Worldwide, Marla Evel of Marveless Transportation, Jeff Goldin of Southwest Sedan Service, Billy Jinks of JET Limousines, Ira Schneider of Goldstar Executive Transporation Services, Joe Trobunella of AZ Limo, and Ben Zaharie of AZ Sedans.  The board is planning a closed-door meeting with Kaplan in which officers will be appointed.
