The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) announced that Chair Steven Polmans and Vice Chair Sanjeev Gadhia would serve an additional term.
"Following a successful two years serving the membership and industry, TIACA is pleased to announce that Chair Steven Polmans and Vice Chair Sanjeev Gadhia will continue their work at the association's helm for the next two years," the industry group said.
It added that following the successful transformation of the association, including a revision to the Bylaws facilitating a possible second term for the Chair and Vice Chair, the Board of Directors considered and approved an additional term for the current Chair and Vice Chair to ensure there was stability of leadership and a long-term focus at the Board level.

"The Board has complete confidence that this will be in the best interest of the association and industry. The re-appointment will allow continuity of leadership that will steer the Association through its Executive Summit in March 2022 and the Air Cargo Forum which will be held in its new home at the Miami Convention Center in November 2022," TIACA added.
"I am grateful for the strong support that the Board of Directors has given me by this re-appointment. The industry and the association have recently faced many challenges but have risen above them. I look forward to continuing the work that has already begun on ensuring the association is financially viable and can meet the needs of our members, who are the real drivers of this association. We will continue to ensure our efforts are membership and content-driven and will focus on the membership, advocacy, partnership, knowledge, sustainability and events," Polmans said.
"I am proud of the work that we have achieved, transforming the Association, particularly during such a difficult time for the industry was quite an achievement but we still have a lot of work to do and I look forward to continuing our work for the members and the air cargo industry and I appreciate the confidence the board has shown by this re-election," Gadhia for his part said.
