NAFA's Chapters are the backbone of the Association. It is at this grassroot level, at your local Chapter meetings, that you have the opportunity to reach people who have the experience and expertise you may need to tap into -- and who may need to tap into your knowledge and expertise. NAFA has regional Chapters across the US and Canada. Although Chapter membership is determined by your mailing address, NAFA Members and Affiliates are free to attend Chapter meetings anywhere at any time.
Puget Sound Chapter covers: Most of Washington State except for small region in south-central, the northern half of Idaho, and the State of Alaska.
NAFA is the world's premier not-for-profit association for professionals who manage fleets of sedans, public safety vehicles, trucks, and buses of all types and sizes, and a wide range of military and off-road equipment for organizations across the globe. NAFA is the association for the diverse vehicle fleet management profession regardless of organizational type, geographic location, or fleet composition. NAFA's Full and Associate Members are responsible for the specification, acquisition, maintenance and repair, fueling, risk management, and remarketing of more than 3.5 million vehicles including in excess of 1.1 million trucks of which 350 thousand are medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
NAFA provides its members a full range of products and services, including statistical research, publications, regional chapter meetings, government representation, seminars, online information, and an annual conference with expo.
The fleets that NAFA Members handle are as diverse as the North American organizations they work for. Our Members are key fleet decision-makers -- corporate and government fleet executives who manage specification, acquisition, and maintenance of millions of vehicles, including:
Light-, Medium- and Heavy-Duty Trucks
Specialized Highway and Non-Highway Equipment
NAFA takes pride in its long history with the fleet community. In 1957, a group of fleet management professionals recognized the need of a professional membership society, and, thus, NAFA was born. Over 50 years later, the rest is history. Want to learn more? Visit www.nafa.org
Who are NAFA Members? NAFA's Full and Associate Members are responsible for the specification, acquisition, maintenance and repair, fueling, risk management, and remarketing of more than 3.5 million vehicles — including in excess of 1.1 million trucks! In fact, NAFA Members across the North American continent have more than 350,000 medium- and heavy-duty trucks in their fleets, totaling for more than $21 billion dollars in assets for medium- and heavy-duty trucks alone.
