March 1973 - 5th Annual Meeting

Date: March 23-25, 1973
Location: Detroit, Sheraton-Cadillac Hotel

The following is an article that appeared in the November 1969 issue of Automotive Fleet.

Addressing the largest group ever at an Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association meeting, President Ron Trapani (ABC Buying Corporation) welcomed more than 170 members to AFLA's Fifth Annual Meeting at the Sheraton-Cadillac Hotel in Detroit.

Introducing the agenda for the March 23-25 Conference was Convention Chairman and AFLA Director Mac Wilson. "With costs skyrocketing, emission control and the odometer tax law looming over the automotive field, many things are greatly influencing the industry," Wilson said. "And it is exactly this that needs to be discussed. We shall also discuss the subject of drop shipment," he continued, "which has become an increasingly sensitive area."

The meeting's keynote address was presented by John Blessing, President of McCullagh Leasing. Blessing spoke on "Statistical Assessment of Odometers Impact on Resale."

After a brief question and answer period, George Weimer, Vice President and General Sales Manager for the Hertz Leasing Division addressed the AFLA assembly on "A Lease Salesman's View of Fleet Dealers."

Obstacles to Overcome Prior to a Volume Rollout of Autonomous Vehicles

By Mike Antich
I believe volume penetration of fleets by autonomous vehicles will take much longer to occur than what is predicted in today’s optimistic forecasts. Conceptually, autonomous vehicles are technologically feasible, but, as they say, the devil is in the details. One thing is certain, as we trail blaze new ground, so too will we trail blaze new problems.
