NCLA Discusses New Tax, Elects New Board
The North Carolina Limousine Association’s (NCLA) bimonthly meeting was held Jan. 20, along with its new board member elections, at the Crabtree Marriott in Raleigh.
Issues discussed included a new sales tax proposed by North Carolina governor Pat McCrory, which may include a new tax on ground transportation. The NCLA met with elected officials three years ago, and spoke on behalf of the industry. “We were able to stop a statewide sales tax for luxury ground transportation,” said NCLA treasurer Jamisha Breland. “It is important for the NCLA to once again come forward and explain why this would be detrimental to so many businesses in our state.”
Discussion regarding NCLA membership was opened to propose allowing all Z-Plated ground transportation companies in North Carolina and South Carolina to become members. This would include bus companies, para-transit companies, and ground delivery services. Interest in adjusting the by-laws in order to do so was expressed.
Finally, the NCLA elected board members to serve from 2013 to 2015. The new board is as follows: Carolyn Henson, president; Teddy Crider, vice president; Jerry Thomas, vice president; Jamisha Breland, treasurer; Lenora Bowman, secretary; Diane McLean, legislative committee chair; Jamisha Breland, media relations chair; and Travis Cash, membership committee chair.
