Early bird registration deadline is approaching for the Automotive Service Association (ASA) Annual Business Meeting & Conference.
The event, to be held April 30-May 2 in the Dallas, Texas area, has special pricing online until March 24.
“We created something special to meet the desires of the automotive repair industry based on their feedback,” said ASA executive director Ray Fisher. “The focus for the meeting will be on technical business preparation and business shop management training.
He said participants will get a full array of training meetings and activities to attend during the three-day event.
An industry panel discussion titled Talent Recruitment and Retention Panel Discussion will be led by Tony Molla, ASA’s vice president for industry relations, along with Jeremy O’Neal, head of AdvisorFix and popular industry trainer.
The discussion is expected to explore the issues surrounding the need for new technical and management talent and the challenges faced from a growing shortage of qualified technicians. Fisher said those attending the presentation will take away “a comprehensive knowledge of the current situation, how we got here, what we need to know to address this issue.”
