The Global Rental Alliance held a mid-year meeting via webinar in mid-August with participation of all member associations.
Representatives of the seven associations shared information on membership initiatives under way and touched upon key issues impacting their membership, according to the organization.
The group is preparing for its 13th annual meeting to be held Feb. 26, 2015, at The Rental Show in New Orleans.
Consistent with their purpose to increase the profile of the industry worldwide and benefit their membership, the Global Rental Alliance representatives discussed common initiatives and program work unique to their respective associations. Australia and the United States will be participating in the International Business Leadership Program this fall, administered by the ARA Foundation. Members continue to share best practices that impact their members and maintain a focus on industry technology developments, industry research data and statistics, conference programs, communication/promotion and membership.
The Global Rental Alliance is a partnership among seven independent rental/hire organizations throughout the world, including the Brazilian Rental Association (Associação De Locadoras), Canadian Rental Association, European Rental Association, Hire Association Europe (U.K.), Hire & Rental Industry Association (Australia), Hire Industry Association of New Zealand and American Rental Association.
