EXPANSION: More seminars by ACFO
The Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO) are to increase the number of key industry issue-based seminars they hold annually due to popular demand.
Historically, ACFO have tackled key issues with a line-up of speakers at their annual conference, held in conjunction with the organisation’s annual general meeting.
However, in the last two years they have held a number of seminars, and already this year a day-long event focused on electric vehicles proved hugely popular.
It is being followed on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 with a seminar tackling liabilities facing employees and employers when police issue a Fixed Penalty Notice or a local authority issues a Penalty Charge Notice.
More than 125 people attended the electric vehicle seminar and to date more than 100 members have pre-registered to attend the ‘Another Fine Mess?’ event.
ACFO are now planning further seminars in the second half of 2014 and into 2015, potentially on industry issues including employee fuel reimbursement strategies, end of vehicle lease issues, accident management, tyre management best practice, effective fleet insurance management and best practice grey fleet management.
Damian James, Chairman of ACFO, said: “We have been both delighted and surprised by the number of fleet decision-makers from across the country attending the seminars.
“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.”
