The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) has announced the officers of its 2010-2011 board of trustees.
Tony Passwater is chairman of the board. Passwater is president of AE II, an international consulting, training and system development products and services primarily designed for the collision repair industry.
Tim McDonnell, national training manager for Mitchell 1, is vice chairman. Bob Keith, senior director of education and training for CARSTAR, is treasurer. And Freda Thompson, co-owner of ACE Auto Body, Hartselle, Ala., is secretary.

The International Automotive Technicians' Network (iATN) recently celebrated its 15th anniversary.
iATN has evolved from a small, 50-member e-mail-based communication service into the world's largest online community of automotive technicians, repair shop owners and other allied service professionals, Today there are more than 72,000 active members representing 158 countries.
Internet usage was in its infancy, with less than 16 million users, when iATN started in 1995. At the time, only a handful of technicians could access iATN from their repair shops on connections that took several minutes just to download a few pages of text. Today, the Internet has more than 1.9 billion users and most iATN members have high-speed Internet access at both work and home.
One of its newest online courses, "Collision Repair Process Overview," is being offered by I-CAR, The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair.
This training opportunity covers basic information about the collision repair process. Developed for those new to the collision industry, it is the first in a series of courses that will be introduced over the next year by I-CAR as the "Basic Principles of Auto Collision Repair" series.
