Fleet Forum is seeking new members of the Executive Committee.
We are driven to increase effectiveness of programmes and missions of aid and development organisations by improving their fleet management performance. Therefore, we are looking for senior managers who are driven to make a difference, who believe in the power of collaboration, who understand the tough environment and would like to contribute to our collaborative efforts.
During the General Assembly on 23 November the following positions are up for (re-) election: President, Secretary, Treasurer and members. The new members will be installed in January 2022.
Who are we?
Fleet Forum is seen as THE convenor around Fleet Management in the aid & development sector. Bringing together organisations, donors, suppliers and academia gives Fleet Forum a leading, prominent and responsible position. We managed to get Fleet Management higher on the agenda of managers of organisations and supported organisations with improving their fleet mangement performance. What started as an annual gathering of fleet managers in the aid and development sector is now a member organisation interacting with thousands of staff members of organisations to improve the fleet management performance in the sector.
To further increase the impact we can realise, our next objective is to get fleet management higher on the agenda of senior management. Fleet management is an important enabler for the success of organisations. It contributes to the effectiveness of missions, it has an important role to play in the reduction of emissions, it can save lives. And as a side effect, it will reduce costs. Senior management is instrumental to get the most out of the role that fleet management can play.
The Executive Committee
The members of the Executive Committee of Fleet Forum support this ambitious goal. They set the fleet management agenda for the sector and set a strategy for Fleet Forum that will make the whole sector improve.
What do we expect from the Executive Committee?
