Submission deadline for FLEXY Award nominations end Friday, February 3rd!
NAFA Fleet Management Association’s 2016 Fleet Excellence Awards (FLEXY) garnered unprecedented response when, after more than 113 nominations and many weeks of deliberation, the winners were announced at the 2016 Institute & Expo (I&E) this past April. Embarking on its fifth year, the FLEXYs will once again award in the fields of sustainability, safety, and overall fleet management achievement. Past performance indicates another fierce competition is ahead.
NAFA welcomes individuals and teams to submit an entry for the 2017 Fleet Excellence Awards. Three finalists for each award will be chosen for both public fleets and corporate fleets. In addition, one award will be presented in the area of fleet leadership. Click here to learn more about the awards and the submission process.
“The FLEXY award has proven itself to be the preeminent industry award for fleet, and celebrates achievement at the highest level,” said NAFA’s Chief Executive Officer, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “NAFA is proud to host the FLEXYs for a fifth year as part of our Opening Night Celebration at I&E in Tampa, Florida.”
The submission deadline has been extended to February 3, 2017. Finalists will be notified in February and are invited to attend the awards ceremony in Tampa, Florida on April 25, where the winner will be announced live on stage in front of hundreds of fleet professionals. The awards presentation is part of an opening night party that celebrates the start of NAFA’s annual Institute & Expo.
Finalists are chosen from an esteemed panel of judges that includes fleet management professionals, members of the media, and industry organizations. To ensure the legitimacy of the awards, judges never see the names of the nominees nor the organizations they work for. Voting is 100 percent blind; based solely upon the achievements listed by the nominees on their submission forms. This allows for judging by merit, not name recognition.
Individuals may nominate themselves or someone else. Fleet suppliers are free to nominate their clients as well. Entries in multiple categories are also accepted. If additional information for a submission is required, the nominee will be notified to present further data.
