AMi Accepting Applications for $1,000 NACE Attendance Award

The Automotive Management Institute (AMi) is accepting applications for the 2016 Emil Stanley Merit Award.

The scholarship is awarded annually to an individual who works in an Automotive Service Association (ASA) Collision Division member-business and who displays a desire to improve their business skills through management education.


The 2017 award marks the 27th year in which AMi and ASA have honored Emil Stanley with this commemorative management-oriented scholarship. The award recipient will receive $1,000 toward expenses to attend the 2017 NACE Automechanika in Chicago, July 26-29. The industry event offers an educational lineup of AMi seminars, technical training courses and industry sessions, an exposition and the opportunity to network with other automotive service professionals.


To be eligible for the award, the following requirements must be met: applicants must work in the collision repair industry; must demonstrate an interest in self-improvement through management education; must own or work for a business that is an ASA member in good standing; and, if the applicant is not the business owner, must be recommended by the business owner. AMi Trustees and their employees, and the Emil Stanley Scholarship Selection Committee and their employees, are not eligible to apply.


To request a scholarship application, call AMi at (817) 514-2929, or email tslaton@amionline.org. Applications must be received by AMi on or before July 1, 2017. The scholarship recipient will be notified by AMi on or before July 8, 2017.


ASA established the Emil Stanley Merit Award to honor Mr. Stanley's lifelong contributions to the automotive service industry. Publisher of Automotive Body Repair News (ABRN) until his death in 1989, he was a strong advocate of NACE and of professionalizing the automotive repair industry.
