In addition, the affiliate held the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) seminar, "Experience the Power of Leadership," presented by Kelly Bennett, AAM. Attendees earned six credits toward AMI's Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation. The affiliate also conducted the general business session, an Ascettes meeting, and a collision and mechanical roundtable discussion.
Look Who's in the Running for an Expense-Paid Trip to CARS or NACE
No one can recruit another shop into your trade association better than you. That's why the Chairman's Club has always been an integral part of the Automotive Service Association's membership recruitment program. For every application processed at the national office that is submitted by a regular member, that member earns five points.
The member with the most points Sept. 14, 2007, will receive an expense-paid* trip to CARS or NACE. In the case of a tie, a drawing will be held to determine the winner. To be eligible for the trip you must have a minimum of 50 points. Below are names of members in the running, listed by total points.
*Expenses covered - round-trip airline ticket plus registration to the event and four nights in a hotel. Food and beverage are the responsibility of the winner. All accommodations must be arranged by ASA.
