WOODRIDGE, Ill. — Wheel failures and tire balancing issues will be discussed during the Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association's (AMRA) 2019 Fall Technical Conference, Aug. 20-21, in Chicago.
Technical conferences are held three times a year and are a part of the association's Motorist Assurance Program (MAP).
AMRA, a nonprofit trade association, is an alliance of automotive professionals responsible for vehicle service standards to provide peace of mind to motorists through their members' 21,000 service provider locations and 80,000 MAP Qualified associates.
Membership includes service providers, parts suppliers, parts manufacturers, tool and equipment manufacturers and suppliers, as well as technology companies.
The Fall technical meeting will discuss a variety of topics that affect the automotive aftermarket and those who service vehicles, the association said. Some of the topics include top tier fuels, engine lubrication, advance driver assistance systems, wheel failures, and tire and wheel balancing.
Industry experts will be offering presentations to inform the committee and the audience of any recent changes in these areas, the AMRA said.
"The technical conferences are a critical element of the organization and this Fall's lineup will once again draw record attendance. We are excited about the topics for this meeting and believe the relevancy and timing of the topics align well with initiatives our member organizations are working on," AMRA President Jeff Cox said.
The event also will include a networking reception and dinner for industry professionals from service providers and non-service providers to foster relationships and serve as a pipeline for collaboration, the AMRA said.
