Technical Committee Volunteers Needed

Recently, the National Directors decided to establish standing committees who would be available to answer questions for our members. Specifically, Technical Committee members would be available as a contact person(s), and would attempt to assist other club members with questions or problems they may experience while working on a piece of equipment. Committee members would only attempt to provide club members with possible solutions to problems the member may be experiencing with a piece of equipment.

Committee members would not provide any type of appraisal or valuation information. It is the hope of the National Directors that committees comprised of members who have knowledge and experience working on various tractors, trucks, equipment or any other related IH items, and willing to share that information with other members, can be formed over the next year. The list of Technical Committee members would be published in “Harvester Highlights” on a periodic basis. These committees will require a significant number of members, and it is hoped that many members will consider volunteering. Anyone interested in serving on a Technical Committee is asked to contact any of the National Directors and provide their name and contact information, along with a list of the model(s) of equipment on which they would be willing to provide information.
