More than 59 fleet management officials and corporate industry experts registered to attend the National Conference of State Fleet Administrators' (NCSFA) intensive fleet management workshop in Salt Lake City, Utah, Oct. 9-11. Among those registered were officials representing 19 state fleets. Attendees included staff from six university fleets, municipal fleets such as the City of Los Angeles, and state departments of transportation.
Hosted by Utah’s top state fleet administrator Sam Lee and his fleet management team, the group heard presentations with topics ranging from travel optimization, GPS, risk management, implementing CNG, and fleet rightsizing to vehicle replacement scheduling.
Keynote speaker Kristen Cox, Utah’s budget director discussed the state’s approach to improving efficiency in government. Dan Chase, leadership development consultant with the State’s Department of Human Resource Management, gave a presentation titled “Restoring the Honor of Public Service”. The majority of presentations were case studies by active government sector fleet managers.
NCSFA’s mission is to provide members with proactive networking and political forums, bringing state fleet representatives together to educate, inform, problem-solve, and instruct members on current fleet management policies, procedures and exchange of ideas, solutions, and technology.
NCSFA also holds monthly roundtable webinars for discussion of current events among members as well as webinars by industry experts on alternating months. Information on upcoming events and membership benefits can be found at www.ncsfa.net
