WAUSAU, Wis. (Aug. 19, 2014) — Strategic Alliance Group Inc. (SAG) is inviting commercial tire dealers and retreaders to attend its next 20 Group meeting, scheduled for Oct. 6-8 in Wausau.
SAG’s 20 Potential Members meeting, hosted by Schierl Tire & Service at the Jefferson Street Inn in Wausau, is designed to familiarize prospective members on how the 20 Group concept works. There will be presentations each day about SAG’s alliance partners, and attendees will be able to evaluate the benefits that they bring to SAG members.
Attendance is limited to 20 participants. In order to attend, interested parties must fill out an invitation/contract form online at www.sagtwentygroup.com. Each 20 Group meets three times a year at a fellow dealer member’s place of business.
“Being part of a 20 Group gives retail and commercial dealers enhanced advantages on planning ways to improve gross profit, reduce expenses, re-engineer their business practices and implement management operating systems,” SAG said.
“Our new commercial group will help dealers find answers through sharing with their other successful group members and the support of SAG’s alliance partners.”
Indianapolis-based Strategic Alliance Group was founded in 20122 by Stu Zurcher, original founder of Dealer Strategic Planning Inc. store owner and TIA board member.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
