We thought the AFLA 2014 Conference held last week in Las Vegas was superb! The gala dinner on Tuesday night was a very special event, and perhaps especially so for Gage Wagoner of Phillips Electronics who was named Fleet Manager of the Year and Ingrid Joris of Ingersoll Rand who was honored with the Fleet Executive of the Year award. AFLA next graced their venerable Fleet Hall of Fame with four new inductees: Patsy Brownson, Stephen Levine, Brian McVeigh, and Bob Ward. Kudos to these winners and to the entire AFLA leadership team!
We feature a new columnist this week, Randy Shadley, CAFM. Hardly new to the industry (and to many of you), Randy modestly calls himself a “well-rounded and well-seasoned” fleet professional. He is also an expert on fleet safety and this week talks about liability and personal use, citing a specific case with a surprising outcome that has ramifications for virtually all fleets. Read his column in Fleet Safety.
Hurry: Register for NAFA’s International Fleet Academy by September 30th and take advantage of early-bird pricing! You don’t want to miss this conference if your job responsibilities have expanded outside of North America!
