The National Trailer Dealers Association inducted Nick Lambevski as the organization’s 25th president at the Annual NTDA Convention in La Quinta, Calif. Lambevski was presented with the presidential gavel by previous president Mike Shuemake.

“I was recruited by Mark Ellingson – Mark was one of the founding members of the NTDA and he encouraged me to run for the board,” said Lambevski. “I have really enjoyed the camaraderie, networking opportunities and education that it has provided over the years.”

One of Lambevski’s challenges as the new president will be managing growth, according to the NTDA. The association has grown by more than 500 members since 2010 and the NTDA convention attendance has also seen an increase.

“We need to ensure that the association is adequately staffed and that programs and services are meeting member’s expectations,” said Lambevski. “The membership growth also creates the need to be aware of how best to manage all aspects of the convention.”

Lambevski is the president of Transport Trailer Sales in Ontario, Canada. He is also currently active with the Ontario Trucking Association’s Allied Trade board and is the past president of the Hamilton Traffic Club.
