AWAF Hosts Seminar on Emotional Intelligence

Written by



Some of AWAF’s previous training opportunities have focused on developing a personal and professional brand, presentation skills, negotiation strategies and more. The Professional Development Committee plans to host a training session on finances for the non-financial manager this fall. 

According to Smereka, “We developed a series of workshops for 2018 and will continue next year with a variety of member-requested topics.”

AWAF will also host its annual golf outing, Swinging “Fore” Scholarships, on August 14 from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. The four-person 18-hole scramble will be held at Indianwood Golf and Country Club in Lake Orion, MI. The association welcomes golfers and sponsors to its biggest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from the golf tournament, like proceeds from the group’s workshops, benefit AWAF’s scholarship program. 

Irwin stated, “Our scholarship program is a very robust and exciting program we’ve had in place since 2001, and we’ve awarded $2,500 scholarships to 155 women pursuing an education to prepare for a career in the automotive industry or enhancing their knowledge and skills to advance their current automotive careers for a grand total of nearly $388,000. We focus on women in the early stages of the career, but scholarships are also awarded to long-time industry professionals. We are always eager for new faces to join and support us.”
