“Whether you are just building the infrastructure for a global fleet or are an experienced professional with a complex fleet that spans across numerous nations and cultures, NAFA’s International Fleet Academy will benefit you,” said NAFA’s Executive Director, Phillip E. Russo, CAE.  “From the educational sessions to the opportunity to network with other fleet professionals facing the same global challenges that you are, this conference is a must-attend event for the serious global fleet professional.”
