The Alberta Fleet Maintenance Supervisor's Association is a non-profit organization supporting the fleet management and maintenance industry. It was founded in Edmonton by a group of Transportation Industry leaders in 1980.
These visionaries recognized that in a time of rapidly changing technology and regulatory issues that a void existed for fleet professionals to network and share industry knowledge and experiences. The A.F.M.S.A. was formed to address this issue and to focus on education, safety, industry professionalism and camaraderie; a tradition that continues today. The objectives and principles are:
- To encourage the study of mechanical transport equipment and the maintenance thereof.
- To seek improved methods in the operation of transportation repair garages.
- To study and encourage safety practices and devices in the maintenance and operation of transport equipment.
- To uphold ethical practices in the transport industry.
- To foster a spirit of comradeship amongst its members.
Membership steadily grew and the Association quickly gained a reputation of being a progressive organization with a strong set of principles and objectives.
With the formation of the Edmonton Chapter a huge success, the 1984/85 Executive Team began mobilizing support to start a Chapter in Calgary. In the fall of 1985 the Calgary Chapter was formed.
Today the Alberta Fleet Maintenance Supervisor's Association boasts a total membership of approximately 450 that represents most of the major private and public fleets, major suppliers to the Transportation Industry and representatives from regulatory and industry training institutions. The A.F.M.S.A. has been a strong supporter of the mechanical trades and is proud of its long and successful relationship with both the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in Edmonton. Several awards and scholarships are made each year to recognize technology students and apprentices who demonstrate excellence in their studies and a commitment to their trade and industry.
The A.F.M.S.A. is proud of its strong membership of highly regarded Industry professionals and quality of the programs and services that the organization provided to its members and the industry in general.
As noted below the general meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month. As part of the general meeting format a sponsor and speakers provide up to date technical information, and information on new products available to the transportation industry.
