The convention is set for May 1-2 in Santa Clara, Calif.
The seminars will discuss keys to stress reduction and getting beyond the frustration that shop owners often endure, ASA said.
“It is always exciting for me to see the enthusiasm and energy in the atmosphere after seminars at our conventions,” said Bill Haas, ASA’s vice president of education and training. “This year’s seminars are packed with valuable information and presented by two outstanding instructors who definitely understand the automotive service and repair industry. Everyone should plan to attend and be part of the excitement.”
Automotive Management Institute (AMI) instructor Cecil Bullard will present “Management by Results” on Friday, May 2 from 2 to 5:15 p.m., discussing the importance of creating standards and setting goals.
On Saturday, May 3, Charlie Fewell, AMI instructor and annual convention keynote speaker, will discuss how to reduce stress during his “Connecting and Communicating the Keys to Stress Reduction” presentation.
Both sessions are AMI approved, and attendees will earn six AMI credits for each class toward the Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation.
The annual convention agenda will also include the ASA board of directors meeting; a State of the Association address by Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive; an affiliate assembly meeting; a mechanical and collision division parts forum; a keynote presentation by Fewell; and ASA’s annual Celebration of Excellence awards ceremony, which will again host the AMI graduation ceremony.
