NAFA Fleet Management Assn. is now accepting submissions for its Fleet Excellence Awards (FLEXY).
Open to everyone in fleet management, the FLEXYs are awarded in the fields of sustainability, safety, and overall fleet management achievement and recognize significant achievements, innovative ideas, and best practices.
Submissions for the 2015 Fleet Excellence Awards can be made at http://www.flexyawards.com. Three finalists for each award will be chosen for both public fleets and corporate fleets. In addition, one award will be presented in the area of fleet leadership.
The submission deadline is Feb. 9, 2015. Finalists will be notified in March and are invited to attend the awards ceremony in Orlando, FL on April 14, where the winner will be announced live on stage in front of hundreds of fleet professionals.
The awards presentation is part of an opening night party that celebrates the start of NAFA’s annual Institute & Expo, which has been met with rave reviews, according to the association.
“We didn’t know what to expect, but the event went beyond our expectations,” said NAFA’s CEO, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “We said we wanted to create an ‘Oscars Night’ for fleet managers and we succeeded. You could literally feel the tension in the room as each finalist’s name was announced. This was the awards show fleet managers had been waiting for; one that treats fleet professionals as stars in their own right.”
Finalists are chosen from an esteemed panel of judges that includes fleet management professionals, members of the media, and industry organizations. To ensure the legitimacy of the awards, judges never see the names of the nominees nor the organizations they work for. Voting is 100% blind; based solely upon the achievements listed by the nominees on their submission forms. This allows for judging by merit, not name recognition.
Individuals may nominate themselves or someone else. Fleet suppliers are free to nominate their clients as well. Entries in multiple categories are also accepted. If additional information for a submission is required, the nominee will be notified to present further data.
