The CLDA Board of Directors sets policy and guidelines; oversees committees; participates in the group’s legislative efforts on behalf of their members and is heavily involved in the association’s two major meetings in the Spring and Fall. The association’s board was extensively involved in the group’s rebranding as the Customized Logistics and Delivery Association (CLDA) in response to their members’ widespread involvement in the global supply chain. For the 26 years before that it was known as the Messenger and Courier Association of America (MCAA).
