‘A Lineup for the Ages’ at NAFA 2013 International Fleet Academy

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.
