YANG Launches Monthly Virtual Networking Series

The inaugural YANG Professional Series event will take place from 2-3 p.m. ET on Thursday, Feb. 24.

The Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG), an under-40 community of the Auto Care Association, has announced a new virtual networking series for YANG members and mentors. The YANG Professional Series is a new monthly virtual event that brings together YANG members to discuss key issues, hot topics and opportunities in the automotive aftermarket.

“The YANG council wants to continue to engage our community members through professional development and educational opportunities,” said Cotter Collins of SMP, YANG council vice-chair. “There’s no better way to do that than by combining our own curiosity about current events with some expert industry voices.”

Each hour-long session will feature an industry leader sharing their perspective on an important issue of the day, followed by virtual networking among attendees.

The inaugural YANG Professional Series event will take place from 2-3 p.m. ET on Thursday, Feb. 24, and will feature Randy Buller, president and CEO, Parts Authority. Buller will discuss the topic of mergers and acquisitions in the automotive aftermarket. Parts Authority is a “Heavy Duty” level YANG sponsor.
