CFMS cancelled, but evening banquet will go on

by Truck News

CONCORD, Ont. — The Canadian Fleet Maintenance Seminar has been cancelled.

Originally scheduled for May 6, organizers said they couldn’t attract enough delegates to proceed with the seminars.

“(The) CFMS Committee has determined the most appropriate plan of action would be to reduce the planned day to an evening banquet,” organizers wrote in a notice. “At that time, the 2015 Fleet Maintenance Manager of the Year (sponsored by the Volvo Canada Group) will be identified and honoured. We regret this decision but respect the time constraints our delegates face and plan to resume the full program in the future. Until that time, we hope that you will join us at the evening’s banquet and honour the 2015 Fleet Maintenance Manager of the Year.”

  • Well this story about not having enough delegates to proceed with Canadian Fleet Maintenance Seminar is a kick in the n*ts. Typical that maintenance takes the back seat as usual. I would almost think that they should have cancelled the whole event for 2015 Fleet Maintenance Manager of the Year award (sponsored by the Volvo Canada Group). I guess it is more important to have dinner in which no one had the time to start with and is more important that someone be awarded. As far as I am concerned there is no glory in something that is critically as important and that is maintenance that keeps people safe.
