Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

SMALL-FLEET op­er­a­tors and owner-driv­ers are be­ing sought for po­si­tions on the Aus­tralian Truck­ing As­so­ci­a­tion gen­eral coun­cil. Can­di­dates have un­til next Mon­day to reg­is­ter for the elec­tion next month. The elec­tion will be con­ducted by postal bal­lot. To be el­i­gi­ble to vote, you must own, be buy­ing or leas­ing one to five trucks weigh­ing more than 4.5 tonnes and be on the Com­mon­wealth elec­toral roll. The el­i­gi­bil­ity rules have changed to al­low non-driv­ers to vote as well as owner-driv­ers. ‘‘The rule change recog­nises that the busi­ness part­ners who stay home are com­mit­ted to the truck­ing in­dus­try, have a deep knowl­edge of its is­sues, and have a right to be heard,’’ ATA chair­man David Simon says.
