Steven Seltzer, President of Comet Delivery, was one of the original founding members of the Florida Messenger Association (FMA) in 1989 and treasurer for the first three years. He has used his position as a board member of the Florida Messenger Association to help elevate the industry by working with and encouraging other FMA members to develop best practices and adapt new ways to improve performance.
The FMA Winter Conference showcases the latest technological advances and legislative news; provides education via guest speakers and round-table discussions, and offers opportunities to enrich the relationships among the members of the association as well as the industry. It is a weekend of networking collegiality that energizes all in attendance.
At this year's conference, Steven, who served as the FMA president from 2016 through 2018, was rewarded with his induction into the FMA Hall of Fame, an honor previously bestowed to only two others. Under his leadership, the FMA redesigned its website, increased membership, and established a new venue for the conferences.
Florida Messenger Association is a network of delivery companies that serve all types of industries across the U.S.A. It's mission is to "improve and advance the common business interests" of couriers, delivery services, and all other types of transportation service providers. Transactions between Association members total approximately $10 million a year.
All FMA members must adhere to a strict code of ethics to ensure they provide only the best service to their customers. And the Association encourages all members to offer their employees the training necessary to create and maintain success, including ongoing education and skills development.
As always, the FMA featured a packed house.
