NAFA 2009 Institute & Expo on April 25-28
If there’s such a thing as a “fleetspert,” or a
fleet expert, there’s never been a better place to mingle with them.
The National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) is hosting
hundreds of fleet managers from across North America for the NAFA 2009
Institute & Expo on April 25-28.
According to www.nafaIandE.org, the
I&E is the best place for fleet managers of all levels to network
(read “job opportunities”), build resources, get cutting-edge training
and education, and be surrounded by fleet experts.

training, educational sessions, and workshops along with more than 200
exhibitors offering their products and services just for fleet
