The Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association (AFLA) has honored three fleet industry professionals with its 2016 President's award, including Automotive Fleet's editor Mike Antich, the association announced.

In addition to Antich, the association is honoring ADP's executive vice president Michael Bieger and Elizabeth Schlicht, a member of the AFLA staff who serves as the membership and marketing manager. The awards will be shown at the AFLA Conference in San Diego on Sept. 19.

The association is honoring Antich for his "vision and work to develop AFLA's globalization initiative," according to a release. Antich is a former AFLA president.

Bieger "has worked tirelessly to reinvent the AFLA conference and make the educational content cutting edge and relevant to everyone within the fleet industry," according to the association.

Schlicht is being acknowledged for bringing leadership and stability for the committees that she serves. Multiple committee chairs recommended recognition for her service to the organization.

"This year’s award winners are passionate about AFLA’s growth and they exemplify AFLA’s spirit and leadership," said Brian Barber, AFLA's president. "I can’t thank them enough for their contributions to this organization and the fleet industry."
