With this added expertise, TIACA’s Board of Directors further improves its industry representation. All board seats are now filled, save one open position pending for a Shipper representative. That said, TIACA points out that more seats could become available as current Board terms end, and requests that interested parties contact its Secretariat for more details.

Steven Polmans, TIACA Chair, said: “A strong and diverse Board has proven beneficial to the transformation of the association over the last few years. The appointment of these new Board Members will not only ensure that we remain agile and relevant but will also provide the Board with a fresh perspective. We are excited to welcome Jannie, Martin, Diogo, Dirk, Boon Kiam and Nichole to the team and look forward to working with them as we continue our work in enhancing TIACA’s services and ensuring we are fully aligned with industry needs.”

Glyn Hughes, Director General, forecasted: “2024 is a critical year for TIACA and having strong leadership in place is vital to the association as we continue to grow and invest in programs that support the industry such as BlueSky, Invest in Climate Action and the Air Cargo Training Library. The team is also actively planning for the latest edition of Air Cargo Forum, 11-14NOV24, in Miami which is expected to draw 4,000-5,000 [participants] to a world-class event that will allow for plenty of networking, business and fun. Additionally, the Board has tasked the Secretariat to continue to expand other TIACA programs that tackle industry challenges through a united voice to enhance a safe, efficient and robust air cargo industry, designed to meet the needs of today whilst anticipating the needs of tomorrow.”
