Tom Johnson, the founder of the program, will share with us some of the highlights and inspire you to be recognized for the great job you are doing every day!
*** E85 is a clean-burning alternative to petroleum gasoline. Derived from fermented grains and sugars, it is formulated for use in FlexFuel engines. Learn from Rob Elam, CEO of Propel Fuels, how this renewable fuel is becoming available through a rapidly growing network of alternative fuel sites - empowering the world's most important change agent, the American consumer, with better fuel choices.

*** Join Rudy Six, General Manager of INVERS Mobility Solutions, and some of their users for an interactive and hands-on system demo and discussion of INVERS' car-share and motor pool technology deployed in thousands of car-share, rental and fleet vehicles worldwide:
- 24/7 online vehicle reservation
