CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA)’s popular executive director, Lane Kranenburg, has resigned, and the search is on for his replacement.

Kranenburg has stepped down due to health concerns, but he says it wasn’t an easy decision as he has enjoyed working with the board and helping nurse the newly-formed association through its growing pains.

“But my health has to come first,” says Kranenburg.

The AMTA is accepting applications for a new executive director, who, according to their Web site, “will have demonstrated leadership skills with the ability to ‘operationalize’ the mission, vision and strategic plan.”

The successful candidate will work with the board of directors to oversee the organization that represents Alberta’s trucking industry.

Resumes can be submitted to Sharon Johnson, AMTA, 100, 907 34 Ave. SE, Calgary, Alta., T2H 1X9, or submitted by e-mail to
