One of the many reasons NAFA is the premier association for a fleet management professional is its representation throughout the entire United States and Canada. Unlike other fleet associations that exist within a particular state or region, NAFA has 33 chapters that extend from coast to coast and all points in between. NAFA's Annual Membership Drive, which utilizes NAFA Members as recruiters, is responsible for attracting hundreds of new members over the last five years and has become a staple of the Association's plan for growth. The top recruiter for 2009 was Ken DeWolf of Spectra Energy in Chatham, Ontario. DeWolf was rewarded for his hard work with a free trip to NAFA's 2009 Institute & Expo in Detroit, MI including full conference registration, hotel for all conference nights, and travel expenses.

Five additional members won full Institute & Expo conference registrations for their recruiting efforts during the Membership Drive. These winners included Brendan Keaveney, City of Brampton; Donald Lubinsky, CAFM, Amtrak; Yvan Lupien, City of Ottawa; Nate Washington, Verizon Communications; and Tracey Karrick, City of Kansas City Board of Public Utilities. In addition, each recruiter received a $10 coupon good towards any NAFA product for each new Member recruited.

The 2009 Membership Drive ran from July 1 through November 30, 2009 and increased the membership numbers of 20 different chapters. The three largest increases were from chapters representing Ontario, Canada; the metropolitan Washington DC area; Texas and Louisiana.

"I think it's a fairly easy job to convince the prospective member of the benefits of NAFA," said Donald Lubinsky, CAFM. "It's the time it takes to convince his superiors of the value that is the difficult part. In this tough economy, we need to focus on the possible cost savings and technical help available from the membership in order to justify a membership.

"My favorite benefit of NAFA is the ability to poll my peers on various fleet subjects and also the amount of information that is available to us as members. It prevents us from reinventing the wheel and spending an enormous amount of time trying to find our way when the path has already been marked."

NAFA Members also benefit from legislative counsel in Washington, DC and Ottawa; networking databases; online resources; FLEETSolutions magazine; e-newsletters such as FleetFOCUS and Legislative Update; quality fleet education; events such as the annual Institute & Expo; and the strength in numbers that an association with 33 chapters throughout North America provides.
