In a world of constant change, we face ongoing challenges as an Association to ensure we remain relevant to the needs of our members. But what are these needs? and how do we identify and do our best to ensure we meet them?

Central to the success of AfMA is the division of the Association into specific geographic chapter committees. Every state or region is different, both in terms of the number of active members, committee size and the way in which those fleets go about their operations. Therefore it is the role of our chapter committees to keep abreast of unique issues, developments and changes that can affect the members and the industry in their regions.

Much of AfMA’s success is borne on the commitment and enthusiasm of our committee members and members should never underestimate their importance and influence on our success.Attending our professional development forums in your state or region is a great way to get to know your committee and to connect with other fleet professionals that live and breathe the same issues that you face every day.

Below you can meet your state committee members.

Various sub-committees assist the Secretariat with planning and development. Each committee is made up of a cross section of AfMA Members, ensuring representation across industry groups, fleet sizes and geographic areas.

At various times committees have been set up to advise on special interest groups such as the Not for Profit sector, Benchmarking, Taxation, Safety, the Environment and Education. The Conference Program Committee is instrumental in developing a comprehensive and relevant program for the National Fleet Conference each year. Members are encouraged to get involved with the Association to maintain the philosophy of ‘for the Members, by the Members’.
