AFP Freezes Fees for 2023 in Recognition of ‘Difficult Times’

Date: 23rd November 2022

Membership and training fees for the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) are being frozen until at least the end of 2023 in recognition of what the organisation describes as “difficult times.”

Paul Hollick, chair at the industry body, said that there was a high level of awareness that both individual and corporate members would be facing increasing financial pressures in the year ahead.

“We’re living through a period of time when inflation is high, taxes are rising, growth is sluggish or non-existent, and there are significant rising costs, notably energy. Against this backdrop, the AFP board has decided that keeping fees at their current level for the foreseeable future is simply the right thing to do.

“These are difficult times and we are very much of the mind that, as a not-for-profit organisation that has healthy finances thanks to the considerable success we have enjoyed in attracting a substantial number of members since our formation two years ago, we have a responsibility to support the fleet sector at a practical level.”

The AFP offers two levels of fleet operator membership. The £99 AFP Individual Membership is for single applications from individuals employed in any fleet operator role while the AFP Fleet Operator Membership at £299 is for companies that directly manage car or light commercial vehicle operations and have multiple employees within the business with a fleet stakeholder interest.

AFP corporate memberships for fleet service providers are priced at platinum (£2,000), gold (£1,000), silver (£500) and bronze (£299) levels offering graduated benefits including the number of individual memberships provided, discounts on training and other activities, and the degree of presence on the AFP web site.

Membership benefits include use of the Member of the Association of Fleet Professionals (MAFP) designation and full access to the AFP  online member area that provides best practice process and procedural guides, an online library of reference material and a forum where members can ask questions. There is also support from the AFP helpline and attendance at AFP webinars, fleet operator lunches and forums and the annual national member conference.
