The Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) of the Auto Care Association has announced plans to host regional meet-up events this summer. The program was designed to make it possible for young industry professionals who may not travel to major industry events to get more involved and receive top-notch education and networking at a more local level.
The meet-ups feature networking, education and professional development opportunities hosted by companies and organizations within the industry, or held in conjunction with existing industry events. YANG will provide $500 to organizers to apply toward facility rental, speaker fees or food for the event. YANG also will provide event supplies including a YANG banner, business cards and table cover to brand the event.
