Service operations representatives from 12 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) already have confirmed their participation in the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) Fall 2014 General Meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 5. The meeting will take place at the upcoming Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) set for Tuesday, Nov. 4 through Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Sands Expo Center, with AAPEXedu sessions starting on Monday, Nov. 3.

The NASTF meeting is part of the new Service Professionals Program at AAPEX and presents a unique opportunity for shop owners and technicians to interact directly with OEMs to bring solutions in service information. The meeting’s featured topic is “Aftermarket Access to OEM Education Resources” and a confirmed agenda is available at: www.nastf.org/GeneralMeetings.

“The addition of NASTF to the AAPEX Service Professional’s Program brings the aftermarket one-step closer to the OEM. Sessions on the NASTF meeting agenda like ‘OEM Education Resources’ and the ‘2018’ PC diagnostic requirements give both the automaker and the aftermarket technician insights into each other’s world,” said Kathleen Schmatz, president and chief operating officer, Auto Care Association.

“Technicians, service writers and shop owners are the front-line in our industry and AAPEX, one of the largest gathering of repair professionals in North America, is committed to adding value for their time at the show. The addition of the NASTF General Meeting to the AAPEX Service Professionals Program is an important step in continuing the dialogue among service providers, aftermarket channel partners and suppliers so that all can innovate and win in today’s aftermarket,” said Bill Long, president and chief operating officer, Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA).

The NASTF Fall 2014 General Meeting will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., PST, Room Casanova 605 at the Sands Expo Center/Venetian Hotel. No registration is necessary for the NASTF meeting, but registration is necessary for AAPEX events.
