NAFA To Hold Fleet Management Seminar in Los Angeles
Fleet management may be one of the most important yet most overlooked positions in the business world. The profession involves aspects of accounting, business law, data collection, risk management, and fuel management, in addition to the purchase and maintenance of vehicles. In many ways, fleet managers are the unsung heroes keeping businesses moving. Fleet managers and affiliates who want to learn the fundamental principles and practices behind successful fleet management should attend NAFA’s Fleet Management Seminar (FMS) . The seminar takes place January 23–25 in Los Angeles at the LAX Marriott Hotel.
NAFA Urges Action To Restore Federal Tax Credits For Biodiesel And Alternative Fuels
While the country is focused on the so-called “fiscal cliff”, lost in the negotiations is an important extension of several tax incentives for alternative fuels that expired over a year ago. Fleets have been the early adopters of biodiesel and alternative fuel vehicles, but without these incentives they will have a hard time justifying the additional costs involved with the purchase of biodiesel and alternative fuel vehicles. The incentives include the $1.00 per gallon tax credit for biodiesel and the $0.50 per gallon alternative fuel tax credit for natural gas and propane throughout 2013.
