BEDFORD, Texas — Two members of the Automotive Service Association (ASA) will serve as chairmen of the Congress of Automotive Repair and Service (CARS) and the International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE).
Mitch Schneider, owner and operator of Schneider's Automotive Repair Inc. in Simi Valley, Calif. will be the CARS event chairman, and Jerry Burns, president and owner of Automotive Impressions Inc. in Rio Rancho, N.M., will be the NACE event chairman.
Both events will be held during Automotive Service & Repair Week Oct. 10-13 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. It formerly had been held the same week as the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show.
CARS and NACE also include Auto Glass Week events dedicated to the automotive glass professional.
“We are very pleased that these two distinguished and accomplished industry leaders have accepted the assignment to chair the CARS and NACE events at ASRW,” said ASA President Ron Pyle.
“They are truly representative of the core values embraced and promoted by our organization. These gentlemen will be outstanding ambassadors for ASRW demonstrating the value of an event dedicated to the thousands of small businesses in the independent automotive service and repair industry.”
