On Nov. 16, the Pacific Southwest Chapter of NAFA-The Fleet Management Association gathered at the LA Convention Center for its third annual meeting in conjunction with AutoMobility LA, the media and industry day of the LA Auto Show.
During the meeting, representatives from General Motors, Stellantis, Toyota, Kia, Subaru, Mazda, Mullen, Rivian, and Ford, highlighted their fleet-focused vehicle offerings and model enhancements for the coming year.
Over 60 PSW chapter members attended the meeting, representing over 18,000 fleet vehicles and a replacement budget of more than $24 million.
After the meeting, attendees were able to walk the show floor to see many of the vehicles discussed.
“The NAFA PSW Chapter meeting that accompanies the LA Auto Show is a fantastic opportunity to hear directly from OEM representatives, network with other fleet managers, and see new vehicles and models at the show,” said Lissa Brady, fleet asset manager for San Diego Gas & Electric.
Along with the PSW Chapter board, Bradley Northup, public works superintendent–fleet operations for the City of Carlsbad, California organized the meeting.
The NAFA Pacific Southwest Group, which represents the State of Hawaii, Las Vegas, and Southern California from San Luis Obispo to the border of Mexico, is one of 32 groups contained within eight NAFA regions.
