The ability to tap into the combined knowledge and expertise of experienced and recognized professionals, all in one location, is an unbeatable value. NAFA is proud to announce the additions of Steven Saltzgiver, Fleet Operations Group Director-North America for Coca Cola Refreshments and Kevin Fisher, CAFM, Vice President Strategic Fleet Operations, ARAMARK, to the faculty for the 3rd Annual International Fleet Academy this October in Tucson, Arizona.
Saltzgiver and Fisher join an already stellar group of fleet experts including former NAFA President Gayle Pratt; Joe LaRosa, NAFA’s current International Vice President; Joe Carreira (the 2012 International Fleet Manager of the Year); and Giovanni Tortorici (the President of the Italian Association of Managers Buyers and Used Cars — AIAGA) who were previously announced.
“We’re quickly building a lineup for the ages!” said NAFA’s Executive Director, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “The brightest minds from throughout the international community recognize the importance of quality global fleet education. They’re excited to offer their knowledge and experience and we’re excited to have them on board!”
NAFA’s 3rd annual International Fleet Academy will take place October 21–23 at Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson, AZ. The 3-day conference was designed specifically to meet the needs of those who manage fleets outside of the United States and Canada. In addition to over 15 educational sessions, the conference offers exclusive networking opportunities and a cocktail reception and dinner each night. Early-bird registration is $650 for NAFA members and $1,105 for non-members. After August 16, registration costs are $799 for NAFA members and $1,550 for non-members. Fleet professionals may save $200 off the registration costs by joining NAFA as they register.
Attendees receive several value-added educational items to take back to the office including a ready-to-use executive summary; free subscription to International Fleet World magazine; the newly published NAFA’s Global Fleet Guide; and valuable checklists for policies, RFIs, and RFQs. All total, it’s a resource package valued at $2,500 – well worth the registration costs alone.
