Okla. Fleet Association Selects Leaders, Plans First Member Meeting

March 11, 2014

Oklahoma fleet managers voted to revive the Oklahoma Public Fleet Management Association (OPFMA) following a Dec. 5 meeting in Tulsa. The association has since chosen its leadership and set an agenda for its first statewide meeting, set for April 3 in Oklahoma City.

About 30 fleet professionals braved inclement weather to attend the first event, according to President Brian Franklin, CPFP, administrative manager of the City of Tulsa.

Other officers include:

  • Robert Swepston, City of Muskogee, vice president
  • Leon Fourcade, University of Oklahoma, associate vice president
  • Connie Hall-Jones, Oklahoma State Department of Health, treasurer
  • Sherron Wilson, City of Tulsa, secretary
  • Marcus James, Tulsa Public Schools, member at large
  • Mike White, City of Norman, member at large
  • Vicki Hoppes, Tinker Air Force Base, member at large
  • Kathi Croze, CEI Group, vendor representative
  • John Floistad, BG Products, vendor representative

The board met Feb. 20 and recommended that members review the association's draft articles of incorporation, constitution, and bylaws. The group is also working on a website and logo.

Finally, the board agreed to hold the first member meeting on April 3 for members to share best practices and collaborate on ideas. The full-day event will include vendor representatives and fleet professionals from Oklahoma school districts, municipal fleets, and state and federal fleets.
