Record numbers flocked to Southern California for the 17th annual conference of the Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association, held at the Sheraton Grande in downtown Los Angeles, March 16 through 18. Warm weather and clear-blue skies greeted the 375 men and women attending AFLA; it was the largest turnout in the history of the organization, topping the previous record of 336 who attended the Denver meeting in 1982.
The conference began with a general session Friday morning, followed by various receptions and tours. The real work started Saturday morning with a variety of informational sessions, such as dealer-level service problems. Speakers included Jay Campbell, Tom Cullen, Mog Mogensen, and Harry Quinn. Their approach was to offer personal advice on how to deal with service-related problems.
