ARLINGTON, Va. (Oct. 21, 2005) — The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) plans to hold its next meeting Wednesday, Nov. 2, in Las Vegas in conjunction with the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS).
The meeting, from 1:30-5 p.m. at the Mirage Hotel and Casino, will provide a forum for service providers, tool companies and auto makers to discuss topics of interest and address service technology issues, the NASTF said. CARS is part of Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week events Nov. 1-4.
Among other business, NASTF's five committees—on service information, training, tools and equipment, vehicle security and communications—will provide reports and plans for future activities.
Established in 2000, the organization said its goal is to facilitate the identification and correction of gaps in the availability and accessibility of OEM automotive service information; provide technology training for technicians; pursue the availability of both OEM and generic diagnostic tools and equipment; and provide communication outreach to automotive service professionals.
