Welcome Message

Scott McIver, CPFP, CAFS

As a fleet manager, a Certified Public Fleet Professional (CPFP), and the chair of the Fleet Management Committee, I can say APWA is the go-to organization for fleet management education. APWA’s fleet education is designed to prepare and guide you along your fleet career path.

Fleet operations impact public works operations, maintenance, and public safety. The APWA Fleet Management Committee is responsible for educating APWA members and nonmembers to ensure fleets in the US and Canada serve not only public works but the general public. Please consider joining the Fleet Management Knowledge Team to assist the Fleet Management Committee in providing impactful, cutting-edge education. For more information, contact the technical committee staff liaison at education@apwa.org.
