For many of today’s commercial fleets, the future of fleet management lies beyond the North American borders. When NAFA Fleet Management Association began seeing more and more corporations extend their fleets across the globe, the association created educational sessions and seminars to offer guidance, according to the association.  NAFA continues its focus on global fleets with the creation of the Association’s International Fleet Academy.

NAFA Executive Director Phillip E. Russo, CAE, recently signed a three-year agreement with fleet solutions company FleetVision to take the lead in developing content for the new International Fleet Academy. Extending far beyond the initial scope of NAFA's international seminars, this new entity will include two different levels of education: one for the beginner and another for more seasoned veterans. FleetVision will also take the lead in selling sponsorships and finding speakers. The company intends to reach out to U.S.-based fleet management companies to help contribute to the curriculum content and lend expertise.  

NAFA’s 2013 International Fleet Academy will take place October 21-24 at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona.  Registration will open early this summer.
