The Oklahoma Public Fleet Managers Association (OPFMA) announced its new board members at the group’s second annual convention in Muskogee, Okla., on Oct. 2.

Robert Swepston from the City of Muskogee was re-elected as president of the group. John Maehs, City of Stillwater, is vice president; Larry White from the City of Owasso is associate vice president; Randy Cloud from Tulsa Transit is treasurer; John Reel, City of Tulsa, is the social media representative; and Melody Reecer from the City of Muskogee is secretary. The board also consists of three members at large, three vender representatives, and past president Brian Franklin from the City of Tulsa. 

The two-day event brought together 200 fleet professionals from 80 fleet and service organizations, a jump from 90 attendees at its first conference. Almost 40 technicians participated in hands-on training including a dozen automotive students from Tulsa Union High School. The event featured a welcome message from Muskogee Mayor Bob Coburn; keynote speaker Jeffrey Tews from the City of Milwaukee, Wis.; speaker TJ Tennent, engineering manager from Bridgestone/Firestone; and speaker Tom Johnson with 100 Best Fleets.

The Oklahoma Clean Cities Coalition facilitated an alternative fuels panel and allowed attendees to test drive an electric vehicle. Attendees also toured Muskogee’s downtown maintenance facilities and participated in a vehicle equipment expo as well as a roundtable session titled, “Cold Drinks and Hot Ideas.” After-hours networking occurred at the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, where attendees enjoyed live music and music trivia games.
