YANG schedules local networking meetups

June 4, 2015

The Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) of the Auto Care Association has announced its summer regional meetup events. The program is designed to make it possible for young industry professionals who may not travel to major industry events to get more involved and receive top-notch education and networking at a more local level.

The meetups feature networking, education and professional development opportunities hosted by industry companies and organizations, or held in conjunction with existing industry events. YANG will provide $500 to organizers toward facility rental, speaker fees or food for the event. YANG also will provide event supplies including a YANG banner, business cards and table cover to brand the event.
