ACFO is restructuring for 2018, in a bid to attract more members.
It will now be focused around one region, rather than nine – with regional webinars replacing its regional meetings.
The organization will still hold its bi-annual seminars.
ACFO chairman John Pryor said: “The fleet industry and the role of the fleet decision-maker continues to evolve and so must ACFO.
“Member feedback indicates that managers are quite prepared to attend a day-long seminar where they can obtain a wealth of comprehensive information on a major issue impacting on them, their organisation and their drivers and additionally quiz knowledgeable speakers and network with colleagues.”
ACFO’s six-strong board chaired by Pryor will remain and the organisation is now asking for members to apply for the positions of regional chairman and regional secretary with their key role being to facilitate and chair the regional webinars which, if demand requires, could be held more frequently than the planned two a year.
As ACFO further evolves it will continue to:
- Make its website - www.acfo.org - and its online library of fleet policies, best practice procedures, fact sheets and white papers and question and answer forums available.
- Engage with other fleet and motor industry organisations and government departments and agencies on key issues to deliver the views of fleet decision-makers.
- Publish its weekly ‘Newsfeed’ containing the very latest ACFO and industry news.
- Hold its annual awards recognising the best fleet vehicles, initiatives and suppliers’ products and services.
It is anticipated that ACFO’s new structure will take effect from January 1 2018.
