NBB members guide association priorities

By | November 17, 2010
National Biodiesel Board members play a major role in defining the long-term objectives and programs for their trade association. This month, NBB members have been asked to complete an online survey to provide input and identify priorities for the draft 2012 NBB Program Plan, which will cover October 2011 to September 2012.

The survey is part of an extensive planning process to capture member input and share association priorities. NBB staff and contractors are constantly interacting with biodiesel companies, regulators, users, engine and vehicle companies and distributors to better understand the needs and priorities of the industry. NBB gathered input on the technical program through participation in the Biodiesel Technical Workshop, which NBB hosted in November in Kansas City. Also in November, the membership meeting in St. Louis provided another opportunity to give input to the planning process. During this meeting, the standing committees (Regulatory, Trade, Technical and Marketing) convened and discussed issues the industry would be facing in 2012.

In addition to committee meetings, direct member input, and a survey, the program plan development also includes a webinar presentation and member review, which will be held in January. Finally, the comprehensive, directional plan for the biodiesel industry will be the No. 1 order of business at the membership meeting held during February's National Biodiesel Conference & Expo in Phoenix.

This extensive input process allows NBB to prepare a clear direction to ensure the trade association continues to meet members' needs.
