MLOA Discusses Show Presence at Monthly Teleconference Meeting

The Minority Limousine Operators of America (MLOA) held its monthly teleconference membership meeting on Aug. 28, and addressed topics ranging from business cards to tires. Presentations were given by Create-A-Card’s Arthur Messina, Lenore D’Anzieri from Driving Results, David Ward from American Motors, the Limo Digest Show’s Kay Weninger, and Chris Weiss from Chauffeur Driven.

Messina gave the association advice on marketing for this season’s industry shows, urging members to update and stock up on business cards for the events. Ward discussed issues relating to fleet tires—such as the once-again-available Michelin P245/60R/17 (T108) Energy LX4 stretch limo tire—as well as American Motor Products and Michelin’s joint-effort Fleet Discount Card, which allows livery operators to receive the discounted National Fleet Account price on their tires when purchasing through authorized Michelin dealers. (More information on this topic can be found here.)

The MLOA also discussed the idea of reducing the frequency of their meetings, which are now held every month. Some members feel that the meetings’ frequently low attendance is due to the fact that the meetings occur too often. The meeting’s primary focus, however, was the MLOA’s presence at this fall’s industry shows. The association announced that it will have a booth at the Limo Digest Show’s Association Alley, and that it has an association meeting scheduled for the event. Show Director Kay Weninger was on the call to update the members on the show’s latest news, plans, events and features.

The MLOA is a non-profit organization comprised of minority-owned limousine operators and affiliate and vendor members. The association prides itself on being a proactive, non-profit, tax-exempt national organization that is dedicated to the success of its members and the support of all facets of the chauffeured transportation industry, locally, statewide and nationally. The MLOA provides a forum for member
companies to exchange valuable ideas, expertise in customer service, and information about employee hiring and other industry-related matters. The association also provides educational and legislative assistance to its members, and acts as a liaison between its members and the many regulatory agencies they work with.
