“It has been a challenging, yet productive two years, and I’m honored to have been served a second stint as UTA President,” said Randy Newman. “Membership, revenue, and conference attendance, which have all decreased steadily since 2010, saw increases this year from previous year for the first time in over a decade. And we averted a catastrophe in 2023 from the California legislature that would have ended our industry as we know it. With no legislative threats on the horizon in any western state in ’23, the immediate future looks good. While every year brings its own challenges, we have a very strong slate of incoming officers who are passionate advocates for our industry in general, and this organization in particular.”
