Become a Board Member

To become an American Bus Association Board member, an individual must be an owner, partner, or a member of his or her company's senior management team, and must remain a full-time, career employee of his or her company throughout his or her term of service on the ABA Board.


Persons who desire to be nominated for a seat on the Board of Directors, or who desire to nominate another member for such a seat, must submit a statement of the candidate's qualifications and other pertinent information to the Governance Committee Chairman. Stayed tuned for information on the 2020 Board Nomination process.


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.
