ATA appoints Michael Card as 68th chairman
The American Trucking Associations’ Board of Directors recently elected Michael Card, president of Combined Transport in Central Point, Oregon, as the agency’s new chairman. Card will take over at a time when the industry faces many challenges with federal regulations and an ever-increasing number of truck driving jobs available in the United States.
Card also emphasized the need to fund and improve infrastructure improvements by building coalitions with federal agencies in Washington D.C.
“It is not secret that our nation and our industry are at a crossroads – with looming changes in hours-of-service, a steady, but still slow economic recovery, a federal government threatening to impose even more onerous regulations on our industry while all the while under-investing in the highway system we depend on,” Card said. “I truly believe that in order to overcome this myriad of challenges, we need to continue to work together as an industry and I hope to play a role in doing that.”
Michael Card replaces Dan England as the ATA’s new chairman. His resume includes positions as the president of the Oregon Trucking Association, the Oregon state vice president for the American Trucking Associations, chairman of the Highway Policy Committee and other appointments.
