Hosted by NACE | CARS 2016 and organized by the Auto Care Association and Stone Fort Group, the Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) Meet-Up will take place on from 3-5 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
YANG was formed in January 2014 and provides auto care professionals in their 20s and 30s the opportunity to network with industry peers, enhance knowledge and improve leadership capabilities. YANG participants are future executive-level staffers of the auto care industry who see the value in establishing connections with other young professionals who will one day be business owners and key decision-makers.
