The National Ford Truck Club (NFTC) was established in March, 2006, at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Work Truck Show in Atlanta, Georgia. Twelve of 18 Regional Truck Clubs sent representatives to that meeting. Much of the talk was focused on how to make Regional Clubs better for members. It was agreed that a National Ford Truck Club could bring Fleet and Commercial Sales Managers; Ford Professionals, together to discuss common challenges relating to our unique role in the vehicle sales business.
The NFTC’s mission became to help all Ford Professionals increase their effectiveness through the exchange of ideas with peers; through education and exposure to resources and procedures used by other successful FordPros. Where there are Regional Clubs, the NFTC works to help them grow and meet their unique needs in their area.
Four out of five dealerships are located too far from a Regional Club for regular participation by their FordPros in that market. The NFTC wanted to make benefits of a club available to all FordPros at any Ford dealership in the country. To serve this broad group of professionals nationally, the NFTC vowed to build Internet-based tools and resources so the NFTC can offer practical benefits to all FordPros.
