March 1984 - 17th Annual Conference

Date: March 16-18, 1984
Location: Los Angeles, Sheraton Grande

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

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.
