– Top-level executives from DaimlerChrysler, Ford, General Motors, Toyota, ARI, Donlen, LeasePlan, PHH, and Wheels will discuss today’s hottest fleet issues and give their perspectives on the fleet industry’s future during encore sessions at NAFA’s 2007 Fleet Management Institute and Law Enforcement Group Conference (FMI-LEG). The FMI-LEG Conference takes place May 5-8, 2007, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
The OEM executive session takes place May 6, at 10 a.m. The leasing company executive session takes place May 7, at 11:15 a.m. Both sessions are part of the FMI-LEG experience, which includes more than 50 general and concurrent sessions, 300 fleet-minded exhibitors, and industry networking.
Those new to the industry will find value in such sessions as “Automotive Maintenance 101” or “Creating an Effective Business Plan.” Veteran fleet managers will want to make sure they attend the half-day ‘advanced skills’ sessions on “Opportunities in Global Fleet Management” or one of the “Lifecycle Cost Analysis” sessions being offered for both commercial and public service fleet managers.
According to NAFA, it anticipates more than 1,100 fleet managers will be in attendance. The full FMI-LEG schedule will be available online in early December, along with online registration. For more information, visit www.nafa.org, or call NAFA at (732) 494-100.
