BETHESDA, MD – January 11, 2017 – The Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) of the Auto Care Association is currently taking applications for companies to host a Regional Meet-Up in 2017.

These local events were launched in June 2015. All young professionals, both members and non-members, under the age of 40 in the industry are encouraged to attend these events for in-person networking without having to travel far from home. There is no fee to attend.

The next YANG Regional Meet-Up is scheduled for Feb. 10, 2017, 5 p.m.-8 p.m. in Grand Rapids, Mich. This event is hosted by Auto-Wares and is being held in conjunction with the Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper Tech Expo. YANG members will receive complimentary access passes to the show floor on Friday night. The three-hour event includes a welcome address from Todd Leimenstoll, president, Auto-Wares, networking, opportunity drawings and more. Interested attendees should RSVP to a particular meet-up location at www.autocare.org/yangevents.
