Full advocacy strategies on the table at HVIA State Committee meetings

Agendas for 2021’s first round of HVIA State Committee meetings are now available with a broad range of issues and information on the table.

HVIA Chief Executive Todd Hacking has highlighted the busy start to 2021 in his opening report for the year.

“With Truck Show ramping up, the HVNL reform edging closer and the impending go live for the RVSA on 1 July 2021,” Mr Hacking said.

“Add to that, a watching brief on the evolving COVID-19 situation and a PBS approvals bottleneck at the NHVR, causing all of us grief.

“HVIA is also aware of the struggles that many of you are facing in the supply chain, particularly with ports and global shortages.”

The State Committee meetings include the first look at two new HVIA strategy documents – HVIA’s Advocacy Action Plan 2021 and a Technical Advocacy Action Plan 2021.

“These are presented to start a conversation and we want your feedback,” Mr Hacking added. “We want to know if there are other issues, more important issues, or items that are missing.

“We hope these documents will help guide our focus throughout 2021 and help keep us on track through our important advocacy and technical work but more importantly allow our members to keep us accountable through mechanisms such as the State Committee meetings.”
