With its tagline of small-town charm, big bright future, we can’t help but appreciate the relevance of this location for our spring leadership gathering. The auto care industry parallels the Bonita Springs motto, with our focus on community and support today (and every day), combined with our collective eye on the exciting possibilities of tomorrow and our industry’s future success.
This theme is represented in some of the key topics you’ll hear about at Spring Leadership Days: new tools to utilize in our fight to access vehicle data; technology to not only take your businesses global, but also make better business decisions; and staying on top of tariffs and trade issues before they hit your bottom line.
We have a lot to cover in three days of more than 25 meetings of communities, standing committees, the board of directors and more. Also, please don’t forget to engage with the young leaders participating in the YANG Leadership Conference immediately following Leadership Days, and show your support of up-and-coming key players in our industry community. If you know someone under-40 who may benefit from attending, please be sure to share this opportunity with them.
To our newest volunteer leaders elected on Jan. 1 of this year, we’re eager to hear from you. Our simple motto for Leadership Days is to take this opportunity to speak up, speak out and contribute. We look forward to seeing you, helping you work toward your own goals and the collective goals of the industry that keeps America moving.
