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.

Autonomous Vehicles will Create a Radical Paradigm Shift in Vehicle Design

By Mike Antich
My prediction is that autonomous vehicles will create a paradigm shift in vehicle design, whereby interior design will become the primary brand differentiator in the future. What will drive this paradigm shift is that future autonomous vehicle design will focus primarily on the passenger and not the driver. This will create a tectonic shift in vehicle design with ramifications that will take decades to fully play out.

Focusing on the Vehicle Delivery Process

By Sherb Brown
The fleet industry is evolving at an ever-increasing pace, but the one area that hasn’t evolved and never seems to improve is the actual vehicle delivery process. It would seem to be the easiest part of the whole business, but it is the one area that everyone struggles with.
