AASP awards grants to NABC, automotive education institute

May 23, 2011

May 23, 2011 The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers (AASP) has awarded Industry Improvement Grants to the National Auto Body Council (NABC) and the Automotive Education & Policy Institute (AEPI).

The grants were approved at the AASP's national board of directors meeting in Raleigh, N.C. in April. The NABC grant will go toward helping create a Spanish-language glossary of collision repair terms for Spanish-speaking shop employees and customers. The money for the AEPI will assist in creating a Web-based collection of legal decisions made in favor of collision repairers.

The AASP also voted to participate in the Society of Collision Repair Specialists' Repair Driven Education (RDE) series at SEMA in Las Vegas in November.

"After experiencing last year's RDE first hand, I was impressed with the caliber of the content provided," said AASP President Rick Starbard. "It was great to be able to experience educational seminars that are truly repairer driven, and our association is proud to be a part of that experience in 2011."

The next AASP meeting will be held Nov. 2 in Las Vegas during SEMA. For more information on AASP, visit autoserviceproviders.com.
