SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanner Fornesi, Assistant Vice President and Transportation Practice Leader at Heffernan Insurance Brokers, has been elected Chair for the Sacramento chapter of the California Trucking Association. Fornesi currently serves as Vice Chair.
His duties will include attending Steering and Planning Committee meetings once a month to make budgeting decisions for the unit, planning events for the unit, and assisting with overall direction and guidance of the association. He will also continue serving on the Safety, Security, and Human Resources Policy Committee and will gain a seat on the Board of Directors, with voting capabilities regarding the global direction of the CTA.
"I'm extremely excited to be trusted with such a high-level position within the CTA," said Fornesi. "The vote of confidence by my fellow members in electing an associate member, not a carrier member, to the chair position speaks volumes about the trust amongst members of the organization. I look forward to leading the Sacramento unit to another successful year in 2017, and want to give my sincere thanks to Brian Getz, 2016 chair, for his guidance during the transition time."
Fornesi will begin his term as Chair in January 2017.
