The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) and the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) have announced that Kathleen Schmatz, CEO and president of AAIA, has been elected by the NASTF board of directors to fill a currently vacant director seat on the NASTF board of directors, effective immediately.

“The addition of AAIA to NASTF’s base of committed supporters is an exciting opportunity for our entire industry,” says Skip Potter, executive director of NASTF.

“Ensuring affordable and effective access to the service information, software and sophisticated tools needed to work on late-model computer-controlled vehicles has always been a major goal of AAIA and we see NASTF as playing a key role in working toward achieving that goal,” says Schmatz.

“I am pleased to join the leadership of NASTF and to work with other board members toward growing the effectiveness of the organization in resolving vehicle service issues; and to help build industry awareness support of the organization by the independent vehicle service industry.”

NASTF was established in 2000 to identify, communicate and resolve gaps in the availability and accessibility of automotive service information, service training, diagnostic tools, and equipment for the benefit of automotive service professionals and their customers. For more information visit
