Written by

On Sept. 22-24, ASA-IL will hold its annual Chicago Automotive Networking (CAN) Conference at the Westin Chicago Northwest, featuring a full schedule of automotive educational seminars and a variety of networking opportunities. 

According to ASA-IL Executive Director Donna DePaul-Kelly, “We will be hosting an all-industry reception on Friday night that is free for industry professionals in all areas of the automotive industry.  This will provide an excellent opportunity for networking with key industry vendors. We are also awarding at least 20 conference attendance scholarships to automotive students, in both collision and mechanical industries, as part of our outreach initiative to encourage automotive careers. ”


Deb Bullwinkel, Co-Executive Director of the association, added that ASA-IL is currently undergoing a major initiative that will benefit everyone in the automotive industry, from collision facilities to mechanical shops to industry vendors, as members strive to encourage kids to pursue careers in the industry. 


“The framework for these plans should be ready to be presented at CAN, and we expect great things as our plans evolve,” Bullwinkel said.


A three-day pass for ASA-IL’s CAN Conference costs $335 for ASA members and $400 for non-members. More information, including a complete agenda, is available at asailcan.com.
