Legal Advisory Council

Members of the Legal Advisory Council are in-house van line attorneys and in-house counsel for agents. The Council sponsors a Law Forum each August to discuss current legal developments, regulatory issues, legislative developments and pending litigation affecting the industry. The Council serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Directors on pertinent legal and legal policy matters. In this capacity the Council consults with private attorneys whose practices serve AMSA members and household goods carriers generally.
