HDMA members elect 2019 council, forum officers

The Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), the commercial vehicle division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association, recently announced the 2019 chairs and vice chairs for its councils and forums. 

HDMA councils and forums are self-governed groups geared toward senior executives to guarantee beneficial exchanges of ideas and benchmarking. HDMA provides overall management of the meeting locations, venues and governance, and provides retained anti-trust counsel for each. HDMA councils and forums are key HDMA initiatives that provide the highest-ranked member value and are the primary source of continued industry engagement for our member company executives.

HDMA council and forum officers and boards are selected by nominating committees from each, and are elected annually during council and forum member elections.

“We are thrilled to congratulate the newly elected council chairs, who are leaders in our industry,” said Tim Kraus, HDMA president and chief operating officer. “2019 looks to be a promising year thanks to the dedication, commitment and contributions of HDMA’s new council and forum executives.”
