While the early-registration deadline has passed, attendees still have until June 13 to pre-register. After June 13, all registration will be conducted on site. The event registration fee includes:
- All conference materials.
- Entrance into the exhibit hall.
- Entrance into all plenary sessions and workshop training sessions.
- Breakfast and lunch all three days of the conference.
- Afternoon breaks on June 24 and 25.

Among the many benefits of attending, the FedFleet executive planning committee is offering complimentary meeting space before and after the conference to agencies that want to hold agency-specific meetings to maximize their travel and training dollars.
Workshop sessions will include: “Measuring Your Fleet’s Performance” (June 24); “Reducing Petroleum Use—Report From the Trenches” (June 24); “Implementing Your Individual Development Plan” (June 24 and 25); “Ethical Fleet Conduct” (June 25); “Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST) Training” (June 25 and 26); and “Best Practices and Emerging Trends in State and Municipal Fleet Management” (June 26).
While there are many serious topics on the educational agenda, some of the scheduled speakers specialize in education with a touch of humor. Keynote speaker and conference emcee David DeBoy’s breakout session, “Soft Innovation: How Ordinary People Come up With Great Ideas” (June 25 and 26), will use a humorous approach to show attendees how to turn their everyday experiences into innovations. And the titles of the other two keynote presentations—“Simon Says … Get a Life” by Simon Bailey and “A Kick in the Attitude” by Sam Glenn (both on June 26)—promise valuable insights, strategies and principles conveyed in a humorous and light-hearted fashion.
The Federal Fleet Policy Council, the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Office of Governmentwide Policy, the Interagency Committee for Aviation Policy and GSA fleet are presenting FedFleet 2008.
