Testimonials

"As fleet professionals, we are public servants and stewards of the public's time and money. When we go to conferences and seminars, we have to ask ourselves whether we received any value for our agency. While attending the first day of the Public Fleet Summit (PFS), I felt I took more away from it than many of the recent conferences that I have attended over the last couple of years. The second day, those thoughts were confirmed. I was truly impressed with the content, the speakers, and the interaction among the participants. PFS is a well-organized seminar that brings value back to your organization."
