BETHESDA, Md. — The Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) of the Auto Care Association is currently taking applications for companies to host a Regional Meet-Up in 2017. Since YANG started the Regional Meet-Up program, there have been more than 20 meet-ups across the United States, designed specifically for young professionals in the auto care industry.

These local events were launched in June 2015. All young professionals, both members and non-members, under the age of 40 in the industry are encouraged to attend these events for in-person networking without having to travel far from home. There is no fee to attend.

The next YANG Regional Meet-Up is scheduled for Feb. 10, 2017, 5 p.m.-8 p.m. in Grand Rapids, Mich. This event is hosted by Auto-Wares and is being held in conjunction with the Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper Tech Expo. YANG members will receive complimentary access passes to the show floor on Friday night. The three-hour event includes a welcome address from Todd Leimenstoll, president, Auto-Wares, networking, opportunity drawings and more. Interested attendees should RSVP to a particular meet-up location at www.autocare.org/yangevents.

Dates are limited so companies interested in hosting a meet-up are encouraged to sign up early. For information on what it takes to be a host, visit http://autocare.org/What-We-Do/Professional-Development/YANG/host-a-regional-meet-up/.
