August 2, 2014. The Railway Supply Institute will hold its Annual Membership Meeting in conjunction with RSI/CMA 2014 + Canadian Rail Summit on Sunday, September 21, at 3pm at the Palais des congrès de Montréal in room 522. During the RSI Annual Membership Meeting, there will be formal RSI Governing Board elections, a review of RSI activities, and a discussion of future plans for RSI which will be presided over by RSI Board Chair, Michael Foxx.

On July 24, the RSI Board of Directors established a slate of three candidates to begin 3-year terms on the RSI Board starting January 1, 2015.  The candidates will be introduced to the RSI membership at the upcoming Annual Membership Meeting where they will be formally approved as members of the RSI Board.

The three candidates for the RSI Governing Board in 2015 are:

  • Brian Hawkins, Director of Business Development – Freight, Siemens Rail Automation Unit
  • Robert Hulick, Executive Vice President, Trinity Rail
  • Joe McNeeley, President & CEO, FreightCar America

Each RSI member company’s contact officer is entitled to vote on the approval of these three candidates during the RSI Annual Membership Meeting.  RSI member contact officers who are not able to attend the meeting may have RSI management represent their vote by returning a proxy which is scheduled to be sent out next week.
