Join Us for Donlen’s NAFA Driver Policy Webinar

Please join us on May 18 from 12 -1 p.m. for our post-NAFA webinar, Developing a Best-In-Class Fleet Policy. In this webinar, Donlen’s Director of FAS, Chelsea Mathis, will present the right steps to take when developing a comprehensive fleet policy in order to receive full company buy-in and support.

A well written policy gives drivers one source for all information relating to their use of a company vehicle. In this webinar, you will learn how to develop the most important fleet document: the fleet policy.

After attending this session, participants should be able to work with various departments to cover important issues such as cell phone usage, traffic violations, safety guidelines, revocation of company car privileges, acceptable personal use, defensive driving, and alcohol and substance abuse. By the end of our webinar, you will have the necessary framework to build your own effective policy. NAFA webinar registration will be opened soon!

New Technology to Advance Education

For the past nine years Donlen has gladly helped the Jenner Academy School, a school where most children are living at or near the poverty level, to provide some of the basic needs for these children’s educations and quality of life. This year, Donlen donated two interactive white boards for the school’s classrooms, and this month Donlen President Tom Callahan and Chief Technology Officer Dennis Straight visited the students at the Jenner Academy to observe the students enjoy their new white boards and to chat with the students about technology.
