How can I get on the agenda to speak at a meeting?
SNFA plans its meeting agendas at least six months in advance. For some subjects, SNFA will identify and recruit speakers to talk on a specific topic. There is no fee charged for these speakers. At other times, potential speakers will ask to be on a meeting agenda. SNFA allows for this, provided the subject matter is relevant. Under these conditions, there is a nominal fee to speak to the membership.

Can I get marketing assistance to fleets?
SNFA offers both free and fee-based marketing assistance to vendor members. The types of assistance available include direct mail, direct email, public relations, SNFA advertising, marketing events and others. For more information, contact the Association Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is this organization for Las Vegas fleets/vendors only?
No. Any fleet or vendor interested in networking or interacting with peers regarding transportation issues can join SNFA.
How many people can belong under one membership?
There are no limit to the number of people who can belong under one membership. However, depending upon how the organization is formed, each fleet within the organization will need to join if they are managed as separate fleets. For example, the State of Nevada motor pool can join, but the Nevada Department of Transportation would have to join under a separate membership. Some cities and counties also have similar situations. If you have a question, please contact a representative with SNFA for clarification. In addition, there may be certain events where space is limited. When this is the case it will be communicated in the event notification. Most monthly meetings and special events will have small fees for each attendee (for meals, training packets, supplies, etc) so organizations will be able to invite as many people as they want.
