Effective June 30, 2022, Josh Evans will step down as Vice President of Government Affairs for the Equipment Dealers Association. “I’d like to thank Josh for his excellent effort and commitment to advocating on behalf of equipment dealers and I wish Josh all the best in his future endeavors”, said Kim Rominger, EDA President and CEO. “It has been a privilege advocating with Coalition members, working towards safer equipment, and defeating detrimental illegal tampering legislation at the state and federal level. I wish the members the best of luck in their continued efforts in opposing this illegal tampering legislation,” Josh said.
The Equipment Dealers Association will merge with three of its regional affiliates and become North American Equipment Dealers Association. As part of the merger, Eric Wareham, currently with Western Equipment Dealers Association, will assume the role of Vice President of Government Affairs for the new organization. Eric Wareham is vice president of government affairs for NAEDA. He has extensive legal and policy experience in both a trade association and the private sector. Prior to joining the association, he was general counsel for an Oregon-based heavy civil construction company. He also served as the director of government relations and general counsel for an association in the wood products industry, has managed state and national political campaigns, and held numerous positions in a state legislature. Wareham is a graduate of the Willamette University College of Law and Augusta University
