The Car and Truck Fleet and Leasing Management Magazine


Founded in 1955 and located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, the American Automotive Leasing Association (AALA) is a national industry association composed of commercial automotive fleet leasing and management companies. Membership includes domestic and international companies as well as family-owned businesses.

According to the association's website, AALA’s primary goal is to ensure that the business interests of the fleet leasing industry are properly represented before Congress, the Executive Branch and regulatory agencies. Increasingly, AALA is taking a more active advocacy role at the state and local levels of government. AALA strives to educate public officials and lawmakers on the key business issues that impact commercial fleet lessors, management companies and their commercial customers.

In its role as industry advocate, AALA is also actively involved with regulatory agencies charged with the interpretation and implementation of federal laws. Through this involvement, it is a goal of AALA to assist with pragmatic and economically viable solutions while continuing to minimize operating costs for fleets.
