ABA is seeking nominations for leading motorcoach operators, tour operators, associated service providers, and travel industry members to join the ABA Board of Directors for a three-year term. Please send all nominations to the attention of Governance Committee Chair John Meier to All nominations must be received by Sept. 20.


New Directors are elected by the ABA membership during the ABA Annual Meeting, currently held during ABA’s Marketplace and hold office until their successors have been elected and qualified, or until their prior resignation or removal.


Other than the President/CEO and the Marketplace Chair which are one (1) year terms, all seats on the Board of Directors are held for a term of three (3) years, and the term may be renewed following its expiration and upon the recommendation of the Governance Committee. The terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the seats expire each year.
