UMA BEGINS SEARCH FOR NEW PRESIDENT/CEO
ALEXANDRIA, VA - UMA (United Motorcoach Association). During the next few months, the United Motorcoach Association’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors will be working on a transition program preparing for the appointment of the next President/CEO. While working diligently to maintain the organization’s focus and moving forward during this time, UMA Board Chairman, Dale Krapf, has appointed a Search Committee made up of the Executive Committee of the UMA Board.
In addition to the appointment of the committee, the Executive Committee of the Board has engaged the services of Steve Klika, former president of the International Motorcoach Group (IMG) to manage the national search process. Klika has been active in recruiting new leadership for numerous motorcoach companies and trade associations in the United States and Canada.
These actions follow the retirement announcement last month of long time United Motorcoach Association President and CEO, Vic Parra. He is scheduled to step down on March 31, 2017.
The Association is now accepting letters of interest and resumes. Those interested should forward their letters and resumes to APPLY@uma.org

We encourage everyone to join us in celebrating Vic's years of excellent leadership at the St. Louis Expo February 26th to March 2nd. During this EXPO, the UMA Board encourages its members, associates and friends to gather with them to thank Vic for his leadership and continuing friendship.

UMA Motorcoach EXPO annually attracts nearly 2,000 industry professionals and vendors to its event. Registration is open to attend by contacting the Association or going its website www.uma.org .
