At each annual conference we strive to provide an opportunity to increase our members’ knowledge while promoting the exchange of information between them. We aim to provide fleet managers with great cost-saving and cutting-edge ideas they can immediately put to work, making a positive difference in their operations.
“This conference is a chance for fleet managers from all the small towns, as well as larger cities and counties to come face-to-face for a once-a-year networking and high-quality educational event. It's a chance for them to see first-hand how others are leveraging technology in their operations. Fleet managers who want to learn the fundamental principles and practices behind successful fleet management as well as cutting edge technologies should attend the APFMA Conference,” he concluded.
The Arkansas Public Fleet Managers Association was founded in November 2007 to provide the opportunity for public fleet personnel throughout the State to meet and share ideas and information. The organization strives to increase the knowledge and ability of local governmental fleet managers, administrators and technicians; to promote the exchange of information between the members; and to support the functions and the aims of the Association.
