Alexandria, Virginia (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
The annual election of Classification Resource Committee (CRC) officers took place during the September 11 - 12, 2011 National Motor Freight Traffic Association, Inc. (NMFTA) | Classification Resource Committee (CRC) | Commodity Classification Standards Board (CCSB) meetings. The officers elected to serve one year terms are as follows:
Russell L. Garrett – Chairman
M. Lloyd Rawson – First Vice Chairman
Joseph C. Colapietro – Second Vice Chairman
The CRC consists of up to 100 members elected from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Canada and Mexico to represent motor carriers that participate in the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC). Any officer, owner or employee of a participating interstate motor carrier can become a member of the CRC.
The CRC provides information and other resources to the CCSB on matters relating to the content of the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC). It provides information on classification research activities, the transportation characteristics of products moving via motor carrier and on motor carrier operations. The CRC may make recommendations and give advice regarding the Policies and Directives for developing and maintaining the NMFC. Like anyone or any group having an interest in the content of the NMFC, the CRC can formulate and submit proposals to amend the NMFC. However, the CRC makes no decisions with respect to the disposition of those proposals.
The next meeting of the NMFTA|CRC|CCSB will take place on January 22 – 23, 2012 in Alexandria, VA. Both the CRC and CCSB meetings are open to the public and all parties interested in the classification process are welcome to attend.
