FALLS CHURCH, Va. — The Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) introduced the six current members of its Board of Trustees for 2009-10 Monday at the Annual Membership Meeting for MAP and the Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association (AMRA), held at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
The installation of the new board members was approved by the AMRA membership during the general business portion of the meeting. New board members are elected to two-year terms.
Five of the six current members of the board of trustees remained the same. The lone new member is Dave Baier (Monro Muffler and Brake), current AMRA chairman, who was installed as the vice chairman of the MAP board.
