Order Reprints

In order to attract broader support from the motor vehicle service industry, the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) board of directors says it will reorganize its governance structure.

As NASTF sets out to amend its organization bylaws to reflect a more technical makeup of its leadership, the board has elected Charlie Gorman, CEO of the Equipment and Tool Institute, to be the Interim Chairman of NASTF for 2013.

Automotive Service Association (ASA) President, Ron Pyle , who had served as NASTF chairman since 2011, will serve in 2013 as the Immediate Past Chairman of NASTF.

Other 2013 officers include Allen Pennebaker , owner of Orinda Motors as vice chair and Steve Handschuh , executive vice president of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association as secretary/treasurer.

“There is much work to do as we open up the board of director nominating process, transition to a self-sustaining funding model and expand NASTF services to include more of the vehicle service industry,” says Gorman.

“Our goal is to have everything in place by Jan. 1, 2014."

This past year the NASTF board hired Skip Potter as the organization's first professional executive director. It also launched a technician outreach initiative that moves the March 8, 2013, general meeting to the VISION Hi-Tech Training and Expo in Kansas City.
