Sourcewell pledges support to FleetPros organization
Sourcewell leaders are strengthening their commitment to the public fleet industry and fleet managers by signing a partner agreement with the professional organization, FleetPros.
The agreement includes a significant investment to help increase the national nonprofit's impact on current and potential members by subsidizing membership dues for fleet professionals, as well as providing guest speakers and marketing to grow FleetPros' scope of membership.
FleetPros is a 43-year-old nonprofit fleet management association designed to support fleet professionals through education, networking, and resources. Fleet professionals include government agency staff responsible for managing a wide range of vehicles and equipment for their organization.
Sourcewell Contract Administrator Scott Carr is an associate board member for FleetPros and, in 2018, earned the Associate Member Service Award.
“Through our partnership with FleetPros, Sourcewell is providing fleet managers more professional development opportunities,” Carr says. “With monthly meetings, fleet managers come together to discuss best practices through networking, as well as learn more about industry trends and succession planning.”
With five chapters located throughout the country, FleetPros hosts regular events, seminars, and conferences to keep members informed and connected, including the annual Fleetcon event.
