Little Rock, AR, January 24, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The following officers’ changes were announced:
Walter Ederle – 2017 President, City of Little Rock.
Greg Speas – 2017 Vice President, City of Hot Springs, AR.
All other positions remain as previously announced following the 2016 Annual Conference.
The Board wishes Renee Tyler, previous Vice President, much success in her new position with the City of Dubuque, IA; and appreciates all of her efforts while serving on the Board. Scott Stubblefield, the 2016 President, has assumed new job responsibilities in his current position, which requires his full-time attention. Scott will continue his support of our association and the Board thanks him for all his past efforts.
The timing of the 2017 conference has been changed from the spring of the year, as was the Chapter’s previous practice, to the fall of 2017 to enable the newly appointed officers enough time to plan and deliver another outstanding fleet industry event.
Commenting on the announcements, Mr. Ederle said, “Although the 2016 APFMA conference is well behind us, it’s never too late to personally thank all involved for the excellent job in selecting our speakers for it and putting together such a great educational and networking event.
“We also want to thank all of our speakers and our APFPA vendor sponsors at every level for helping make 2016’s conference the best in APFMA’s history.”
Mr. Ederle continued, “APFPA is committed to providing information, knowledge, products and services tailored to the operational needs of public fleets. Our vendor sponsors’ products and services have a positive impact on the long-term sustainability and growth of our membership while demonstrating their commitment to this industry. The annual APFPA conference is one of the most important services we provide fleets each year and our APFPA board is dedicated to ensuring that each conference builds on the foundation of the last. Our goal is for each successive conference to be bigger and better while addressing the current and future needs of public fleets.
“The planning for this year’s conference is already under way. To allow our new Board time to better prepare, we are planning the conference for fall 2017. We will be working hard to provide an exciting venue full of opportunities to enhance and grow your current fleet operations. Look for additional conference details soon.
“Again, thank you for making the 2016 APFPA conference a success!” Mr. Ederle concluded.
