Coffee and Conversation: Hear from Industry Peers on Current Issues

We are proud to introduce Coffee and Conversation, a new educational audio series available on the Auto Care Digital Hub. Coffee and Conversation addresses the issues and challenges facing not only the association’s members, but the auto care industry as a whole.

The series features panelists who provide their unique perspectives on the challenges and opportunities facing our industry and subject matter experts to give an update on broader industry issues. Check out our first two episodes on:

  1. Manufacturing Shutdowns in Mexico
  2. Consumers Transforming Aftermarket E-Commerce

Be on the lookout for our next episode in early July, which will address challenges employers are facing due to COVID-19 as they relate to hazard pay, workers' compensation laws and liability protections..

We look forward to continuing this new series with other interesting and relevant topics facing our industry. If you have a topic you would like to see us address or have other feedback, please feel free to let us know using this survey or contact our community liaison Angela Chiang.
