Board of Trustees

The NTEA is governed by its Association Bylaws under the leadership of a member-elected Board of Trustees. The Board is comprised of: eight distributor, four manufacturer, and one associate member representatives ("associate members" are defined by the NTEA as companies that are not distributors or manufacturers but are affiliated with the truck equipment industry in an ongoing business relationship through distributor or manufacturer members). Trustee candidates are nominated by the general membership for three-year terms, and an election is held prior to the Association's annual convention. A Board-appointed executive director oversees the day-to-day administration of NTEA activities.

Association Committees are comprised of members of the NTEA Board of Trustees.
