The Engine Manufacturers Association’s Board of Directors is ending its relationship with Smith Bucklin & Associates, an association management firm in Chicago, Ill., including executive director Glenn Keller and his seven-member staff.

In an official statement, the EMA said it’s the first step in making "significant organizational changes."
The EMA Board has appointed a group of members to oversee the transition process. Jed Mandel will be the principal contact for the association and Bob Harris will be the association's Director of Finance and Administration.
"The board is looking into reorganization tactics," Harris said. "The direction in which the board was going needed to be changed."
The EMA has been working with engine manufacturers and its member companies on the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission standards for diesel engines.
