We are a profit corporation, as such we can independently provide the
regular support you require without burdening you, the member, as your
time is so valuable toward your profit centers. Not for profit associations
generally require members to provide valuable time for association
business, we will not. We do however encourage you to tell us your needs
and problems so that we may work on your behalf to make your business
life more efficient.
NYTDA finances and reporting are overseen by a licensed certified public
accounting firm. While we are fighting for your rights, our practices and
procedures will be of the highest standards at all times to proudly be able to
pass public and governmental scrutiny and gain their support. This is
absolutely necessary for us to get the cooperation and respect of both the
public and government in areas necessary for the betterment of our members.
This is not a union, but a trade association, that fights for you and has no
involvement on how you run your business. Together, we are partners in a
group designed to fight for better trucking conditions, reduced operating costs
and fines. Together, we can command the respect and attention all truckers
deserve but cannot attain individually.
