The Automotive Service Association (ASA) hosted the first Service Repair Leadership Forum (SRLF) during NACE | CARS in July. The program included a segment on periodic motor vehicle inspections. Panelists addressed the challenges facing safety inspection programs across the United States, in addition to the benefits of strong programs in states such as Pennsylvania and Missouri. Speakers included:
• Bill Hanvey, Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association
• Joe Battista, Parsons Corporation
• Tom Gebbie, Automotive Service Association, Pennsylvania
The SRLF vehicle safety segment serves as a run-up to ASA’s second safety inspection and maintenance forum this fall. The forum will bring together shop owners, industry leaders and policymakers to discuss the importance of periodic motor vehicle inspection programs as well as strategies to protect these programs. The forum will take place in St. Louis, Mo., Dec. 2, 2015.
