PRINCETON, NJ: As more companies and businesses go global and their fleets follow suit, the need for quality fleet management education and services becomes even more vital to the industry. NAFA Fleet Management Association believes the time has come to institute a seat on its Board of Trustees for an International Vice President. This new Trustee will be responsible for developing member services in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and other regions of the world.
Earlier this year, NAFA Members voted to amend the Association’s bylaws to create the International Vice President position. The Association is now seeking qualified candidates to fill the seat. To be eligible, candidates must be a NAFA Member or Associate Member whose membership is in good standing. Full Affiliates, Regional Affiliates, Honorary Members, or Student/Junior Members are not eligible.
Requirements are as follows:
- Candidates should be responsible for a fleet of vehicles in areas outside of the United States and Canada as part of their current duties and maintain a network of contacts in such areas.
- Candidates must have the ability to incorporate NAFA business with their normal business travel to help expand NAFA’s reach beyond the United States and Canada.
- Candidates must make a commitment to attend and participate in NAFA’s Board of Trustee meetings, conference calls, and email conversations.
- Candidates must commit to participating in strategic planning meetings and help conduct extensive fact-finding and analyses to develop an international strategic plan for NAFA.
Interested candidates may download a Candidate Consideration Form at http://www.nafa.org/InternationalVP.
The deadline for consideration is September 1, 2011. In October, one candidate will be selected by NAFA’s Nominating Committee and in April 2012, the International Vice President will officially take office.
