Darren Johnson and Angela Welsh are the Australian Trucking Association’s (ATA’s) 2021 General Council industry representatives.

Johnson, from Goulburn, NSW, becomes the newest owner-driver representative while Angela Welsh, from Blaxland East, NSW, retains her small fleet operator representative position.

Both were elected unopposed. 

Johnson and Welsh are entitled to attend and vote at ATA Council meetings and join in the work of the ATA’s policy committees. 

Johnson takes up his role at the ATA’s 2021 annual general meeting on April 14.

Welsh, as the incumbent small fleet representative, resumes her role. 

Both are to hold office until the ATA’s 2023 annual general meeting. 

Welsh outlined her industry vision upon her initial election two years ago

"I would like to congratulate Darren on his election and Angela on her re-election," ATA Chair David Smith says. 

"Darren and Angela will represent Australia’s owner drivers and small fleet operators, contributing to the ATA’s decisions and having their say on the critical issues affecting our industry.

"I would like to thank the owner-drivers and small fleet operators who showed their commitment to the industry and the ATA by signing up to our electoral roll. 

"I would also like to thank Frank Black for his time on council as our owner-driver representative." 

Independent returning officer Phil Potterton declared the outcome.
