ILTA Committees and Groups

ILTA supports a variety of committees, subcommittees and working groups. These committees provide a platform for members to exchange best practices and address industry issues. They enable ILTA to leverage industry expertise to create work products that provide a tremendous benefit to the association membership. They also give members an opportunity to get involved and exchange ideas on key operational and regulatory topics. The individuals who serve on these committees provide critical input on issues of significant importance to terminals.

Eligibility: The committees and working groups are an advantage of membership and are open exclusively to employees of terminal member companies. Join ILTA.
