See below for a list of regional automotive association events coming up in April:


RDA To Host IMPACT Performance Conference


From April 1-3, the Refinish Distributors Alliance (RDA) will host its next IMPACT Performance Conference at the OMNI Frisco Hotel in Frisco, TX.


“The meeting’s theme will be related to football and sports because the venue is adjacent to the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters in The Star. On April 2, conference participants will have the opportunity to take a private tour of the Cowboys’ training facility,” shared Robert McKenzie, executive director of RDA. “Approximately 100 people from across the country are expected to attend. The audience will include members, guests and manufacturers within the collision refinish industry.”


Following various RDA meetings throughout the morning of April 1, IMPACT will begin at 3 p.m. with several presentations, including “Get Switched On” with Chip Eichelberger, whose presentation will continue before lunch the following day. The first day will conclude with an evening reception before breaking for dinner.


The second day will feature “The Huddle,” a speed-dating-style rotation among the tables and displays of RDA manufacturer partners in 15-minute increments, providing an opportunity for attendees to learn about new products and services in a fun way. Drawings throughout the day will also provide multiple chances for attendees to win valuable prizes. Tuesday’s events will conclude with a dinner reception and entertainment by hypnotist Erick Kand.


The final day of RDA’s 2019 IMPACT Performance Conference is reserved for RDA members exclusively. The day, which ends mid-afternoon, will feature a special workshop presented by Steve Zelechoski of Corporate Visions titled “Why You?” The workshop will complement the one he taught during RDA’s 2018 Fall IMPACT Performance Conference.
