Over 50 Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper warehouse distributor shareholders of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Inc. are taking part in the Alliance's annual winter meeting at the National Doral in Miami, Fla.

The Alliance kicked off the four-day event with closed door meetings for the sales and marketing, information technologies, national accounts and product committees. The Alliance board of directors also met to discuss the group’s direction for the coming year. With nearly 500 in attendance, shareholders from across the United States, Canada, Mexico and Latin America join more than 200 channel partners in collaborative joint sessions, receptions and a golf outing.

"During our meetings we discuss strategic plans, which not only applies to every member in the group, but our channel partners as well,” says Scott Bennett, president and CEO of Bennett Auto Supply and chairman of the Alliance board of directors. “In sharing these plans we can leverage our strengths and continue to address the demands of the global aftermarket and supply chain to grow our business together.”

The highlight of the meeting is Tuesday night’s annual banquet and awards ceremony which culminates with the announcement of the Channel Partner of the Year.
