AFP goes live with online membership under new website

Fleet decision-makers and organisations can now apply to join the recently formed Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) through its new website.

Online membership applications are now available as part of the AFP’s new website

Launched in March as the result of a merger between the Association of Fleet Operators (ACFO) and Institute of Fleet Management (ICFM), the new organisation has been created to give “increased voice through combined strength” and is said to be seeing substantial interest from new potential members, while existing members are being automatically transferred over.

To streamline membership applications, the AFP has gone live with a new online solution this week via the new www.theafp.co.uk website, ensuring new members can sign up in minutes.

Membership of the Association of Fleet Professionals will cost £299 for fleet decision-makers. Corporate membership is available at three levels: silver costing £500 and providing two employee memberships; gold at £1,000 with four employee memberships; and platinum at £2,000 with eight employee memberships. All prices are exclusive of VAT.

The new AFP website also includes a wide range of online facilities including membership services, webinars, latest news, information on training, a fleet directory and more.

Co-chair Paul Hollick explained: “We’ve spent quite a lot of time ensuring that the website is very much up to the standards that would be expected of a professional membership body in 2020 and will be adding further options, including new developments for online training that very much fit in with the coronavirus lockdown. More information will be made available on this development soon.”

Hollick also said the merger had been widely greeted within the fleet sector: “The reception to the creation of the AFP has been very positive across the industry. It was a move that made perfect sense to us at this moment in time and, we are pleased to report, has also been greeted as the right decision by our members and others. They recognise that the combined organisation can achieve much more than the individual elements.”
