President’s Message

Dear Women’s Board,

Many of you are scrambling to get everything finished before packing your bags and heading to “Sin City’.” Less than a week away, the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, Nev. with all its madness will be in full swing. If you are not able to attend, you can stay abreast of what is happening by following our Facebook page.

The Women’s Board is holding our first-ever press conference on Tuesday Nov. 3, 4-5 p.m. in the Sands Expo Room 310. We will announce the winners of the Automotive Communications Awards and our three Women of the Year. Members of the press, friends of award winners and any interested parties are invited to attend. Immediately after the conference, we will move next door for the annual reception.

Save-the-Date-AAPEX-2015Our reception is THE networking event for women at AAPEX, so please be sure to bring friends and co-workers you feel would get value out of attending. It’s a great time to mingle and network with other auto care women and to meet and greet the Women of the Year and one of our scholarship recipients. A short presentation and slideshow will showcase all the winners.

I want to give a BIG thank you to all the WB members that contributed their stories to the book. All the stories are so different from each other, but all have the same passion for their careers in the auto care industry. The Women’s Board is very grateful to the author, John Passante, and publisher Babcox Media for donating this book to the Women’s Board. We are happy to announce that all proceeds will go towards a special 2016 Babcox Media Scholarship that will be presented next year at AAPEX.

We have been very busy planning our Winter Leadership Conference. It’s going to be awesome!

Make sure you save the dates, Feb. 10-11, 2016. Remember our summer conference sold out, so don’t wait until the last minute to sign up.

We already have some great speakers and topics lined up and will be posting the agenda as soon as possible. Also at this conference, we are excited to be hosting our first-ever 5K/Fun Run fundraiser, “Scholarship Strides.” Please help us raise our goal of $15,000 by reaching out to friends, family and
co-workers to sponsor you for this worthy cause. See details below on how you can get started today.

Safe travels and I’ll be looking forward to seeing you in Las Vegas at THE Networking Event for Women at AAPEX, the Women’s Board Reception!

Amy Mattinat, Auto Craftsmen Ltd.
Your Women’s Board President
