Princeton, NJ, United States, 2010/06/21 - The fleet industry's largest annual event welcomes NCSFA as a partner. The partnership will help make NAFA's annual Institute & Expo even more important for government fleet managers.
The National Conference of State Fleet Administrators (NCSFA) is proud to announce that it will co-locate its annual conference with the NAFA 2011 Institute & Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina.
NCSFA recently cancelled its 2010 conference due to the downturn in the nation's economy and the related travel restrictions placed on state government attendees.
"For over twenty-five years NCSFA provided a unique forum where state fleet administrators could network and share best management practices," said Chris Hoffman, CAFM, NCSFA President and Transportation Manager for the Oklahoma State University. "By partnering with NAFA and joining their annual event, NCSFA can be a part of the largest fleet gathering in the world and provide our members with even more value than before."
NAFA's 2011 Institute & Expo (I&E) takes place April 9-12, 2011 at the Charlotte Convention Center. I&E is regularly attended by nearly 2,000 fleet professionals and features more than 60 hours of education and training, abundant networking and social opportunities, and an exhibit floor unmatched in the industry in both size and scope.
"We are very pleased to welcome NCSFA into NAFA's big tent," said Chris Amos, CAFM, NAFA President and Commissioner of Equipment Services for the City of Saint Louis, Missouri. "I&E has something for everyone, regardless of the type of fleet you manage or who you manage it for, so NCSFA will fit very naturally. I hope we can grow this partnership into a long-lasting tradition."
