NAFA Fleet Management Association, the vehicle fleet industry’s largest trade association, announces the return of the Fleet Management Executive Panel to its annual conference, the redesigned and enhanced Institute & Expo (I&E), which takes place April 15-17, in Louisville, Ky.
The recent government shutdown has either directly or indirectly affected many of NAFA’s members. We believe everyone should have the ability to take advantage of the Early Bird registration rate to our 2019 Institute and Expo. With that in mind, we have extended the deadline for the Early Bird discount until Friday, February 8, 2019, allowing you more time to gain the necessary approvals and funds to attend our industry’s largest and most comprehensive annual event. Register today.

This desire to change, to see things from different perspectives, was never more evident than after last year’s annual conference. Despite the overwhelming success of the event (total attendance up seven percent, more than 900 fleet managers, sold out expo hall, higher than anticipated revenue, lower than anticipated expenses), my staff and I knew we couldn’t simply hit the proverbial “rewind” button and do it all again in 2019.
