Municipal Fleet Managers Association
The Municipal Fleet Managers Association began in an informal fashion in 1980. It originally consisted of a few governmental fleet managers meeting to discuss and decipher their computer generated reports. From these simple beginnings it became apparent that a need existed for municipal fleet managers to communicate with each other .The informal meetings continued and were expanded to included topics other than the analysis of the bottom line reports. Over the years, interest in the group picked up as more and more fleet managers participated in these informal monthly gatherings. With this increased participation the group took on a more formal appearance. Sponsorship from an area government council was established. Officers were elected, specific programs began to develop, regular topics were being addressed, and a general sharing of information took place. Our big step began in 1992. It was the consensus of the members to become a State chartered -organization. In October of 1993, the Municipal Fleet Managers Association was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization.
From our simple beginnings, we have evolved into a professional organization consisting of public fleet managers and supervisors. Out intent is to promote cost effective fleet management policies, procedures and techniques among our members through technical and managerial education and training. Information on current products is exchanged through vendor contact. Specific problems concerning government fleet operations is shared by members at each monthly meeting.
M.F.M.A. meets on the third Tuesday of each month with the location rotating among participating municipalities. Our June meeting is allocated to and sponsored by the General Motors Corporation. Representatives from the Chevrolet Division present information and material on their current and future product line. Technical engineers are also on hand to address any particular problems members might be experiencing. Ford Motor Company sponsor's a similar seminar during the September meeting and Damiler Chrysler in October. These types of seminars epitomize M.F.M.A.'s commitment to providing our members with the latest information and material available.
M.F.M.A. membership is open to all qualified individuals who are involved in the management or maintenance of a government fleet.
