UAF to Host Coffee Club Event at AAPEX

To join the club and "Pour it Forward," visit

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) will host the UAF Coffee Club networking event at AAPEX to thank all those who support the UAF Coffee Club through the foundation’s recurring donor program. The event will be held from 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2 in the upper-level lobby area of The Venetian Expo Center near the AAPEX stage.  

“The UAF Coffee Club event provides a networking opportunity for those new to the industry, as well as aftermarket veterans, who have joined forces to ‘Pour it Forward,’” said Mike Buzzard, AAP, UAF trustee and chairman of the UAF Coffee Club sub-committee. “If you’re attending AAPEX, come by and join us for a morning beverage. If you haven’t already joined the Coffee Club, please consider doing so. It’s an easy way to give back and help students pursuing careers in our industry.”

For as little as $5 a month – the cost of a cup of coffee – individuals can affordably “pour it forward” and join the UAF Coffee Club. 

To join the UAF Coffee Club, visit, choose a level of recurring support and complete the form. Funds raised through the Coffee Club provide ongoing support to help provide scholarships and educational opportunities for the industry’s next generation. 

The University of the Aftermarket Foundation thanks eShipping, OptiCat and NGK Spark Plugs for supporting UAF’s new corporate Coffee Club program as BARISTA donors. 

Organizations interesting in becoming a BARISTA should contact UAF Executive Director Jennifer Tio at [email protected]. All contributions made to UAF are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
