Advance the profession of Asset Management through leadership in education, standards, compliance, and certifications.

Cross-Pollination of Ideas and Growth Opportunities Anticipated with Collaborative Agreement between NAFA and NPMA

As part of the mid-February cooperative agreement with NPMA and NAFA Fleet Management Association, NPMA and NAFA will recognize each other’s educational programs and certification credentialing, providing a new mode for gaining professional re-certification credit. The agreement will extend, to each association, meeting registrations at member discount rates, significant presence at each other's conferences (such as NAFA's Institute & Expo in Austin, Texas, April 19-22), and mutual recognition through websites and other digital platforms, and other positive benefits. NAFA also welcomes the opportunity that NPMA members may join so that they can fully participate in a dedicated fleet community, if that is what they so need.
