— In response to Hurricane Katrina, the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) Board of Governors approved allocating $1 on behalf of each member and affiliate to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Each NAFA chapter will forgo portions of their annual chapter rebates to fund the donation. The NAFA Affiliates Committee has also donated funds to the relief efforts as part of NAFA’s total donation.
NAFA has also created a new e-community for disaster relief. Members and affiliates from Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi have been automatically put on the e-community with a welcome message that they can post requests for fleet equipment and supplies. NAFA members and affiliates outside of the three states can join the e-community if their agency/corporation has fleet equipment and supplies that can be donated to fleets in the region (lists.nafa.org/mailman/listinfo/disaster-relief). Members using this e-community should make sure they indicate their name, e-mail address, and phone number in the body of their e-mail.
