NAAA’s Strategic Priorities
Before I mention some of the key highlights from the meeting, I first would like to extend the deepest thanks and appreciation to each of our board members who took time out of their busy schedules to travel so the group could hold this important meeting. I would also like to thank NAAA CEO Tricia Heon and her team at NAAA headquarters for all their efforts in ensuring the meeting was a great success.
The board developed several items for NAAA’s short-term strategic plan. First, we will continue to increase our communication with our members to keep them informed about the latest happenings in the industry and opportunities for training and education.
Second, a key priority for NAAA will be advocacy for EVs. We will continue to keep our membership informed about federal and state legislation and how it could affect our industry. NAAA has already submitted a letter to the Federal Highway Administration supporting the National Electric Vehicle Formula Program and Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Program and how our member auctions would benefit from these programs. NAAA will stay on top of any developments regarding EVs and will be sure to keep you posted.
A third item is continued focus on NAAA’s Workforce Initiative through our live job board and assistance with recruitment and retention. Providing enhanced education benefits to our membership will also continue to be a high priority.
While we have a lot of work ahead, I am looking forward to collaborating with all of you to take on new challenges and make sure our industry thrives for many years ahead.
