The Australasian Fleet Management Association organises a Professional Development Forum program for Western Australia throughout 2018. This event kicks off with breakfast and follows with discussions on topics chosen by the Chapter Committee based on members needs. They are an ideal way of staying abreast of topical issues, networking with fellow fleet managers, connecting with potential clients, entertaining and reaffirming existing clients or taking the first step in discovering what it is like to be an AfMA Member. We encourage you to contact the office if you have any questions about this event.
