ATA elects new council representatives

19 February 2021

Darren Johnson and Angela Welsh have been elected in the Australian Trucking Association’s 2021 General Council election as its owner driver and small fleet operator representatives. 

Independent Returning Officer Phil Potterton declared Darren Johnson (Goulburn, NSW) elected as the owner driver representative and Angela Welsh (Blaxland East, NSW) re-elected as the small fleet operator representative. They were both elected unopposed. 

“I would like to congratulate Darren on his election and Angela on her re-election. Darren and Angela will represent Australia’s owner drivers and small fleet operators, contributing to the ATA’s decisions and having their say on the critical issues affecting our industry,” ATA Chair David Smith said. 

“I would like to thank the owner drivers and small fleet operators who showed their commitment to the industry and the ATA by signing up to our electoral roll. 

“I would also like to thank Frank Black for his time on council as our owner driver representative.” 

Mr Johnson and Ms Welsh will be entitled to attend and vote at ATA Council meetings and join in the work of the ATA’s policy committees. These committees undertake detailed work on the ATA’s policies and submissions. 

Mr Johnson will take up his role at the ATA’s 2021 annual general meeting, to be held on 14 April. Ms Welsh is the ATA’s current small fleet representative and will continue in her role. 

Mr Johnson and Ms Welsh will hold office until the ATA’s 2023 annual general meeting. 

The ATA and its member associations collectively represent the businesses and people of the Australian trucking industry. Together, the ATA and its members are committed to safety, professionalism, and viability.
