ARNE Revamped for 2019


The 2019 Automotive Recyclers Northeast Education and Exposition (ARNE) is scheduled for Sept.26-28 at the Albany Capital Center in Albany, NY.


The event began when ARA-NY introduced a Summit of Automotive Recycling Leaders as part of its Annual Convention and Trade Show. According to the group’s website, “This Summit attracted leaders from across the region and Canada. ARA presidents came to participate in the high-level discussions and sharing of knowledge. A conversation began to unite the region for one, major trade show in order to increase attendance, provide greater support opportunities for vendors, and offer a diversified platform for networking. From those Summits - ARNE was created. Following the Inaugural ARNE Convention & Trade Show in 2017 ... we have revamped to bring you the ARNE Education & Exposition for 2019, with a greater focus on training and education than ever before.”

AASP/MA to Sponsor 2019 Ride to Defeat ALS


On Sept. 22, AASP/MA will participate as a corporate sponsor for the 2019 Annual Ride to Defeat ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease). Participating bikers and motorcyclists will have various ride options to choose from.


AASP/MA Executive Director Lucky Papageorg has participated in the annual fundraiser for several years and states, “I hope to bring awareness [for ALS] through the membership, which will be great for the Ride to Defeat ALS, and I also think it’s good exposure for AASP/MA as well. Our industry isn’t necessarily known for our bike riding skills, but there is a huge involvement of collision repair in motorcycles. So, the fact that this year is the first we’ve been involved and the motorcycle leg of the course has been added, it will be a big plus toward garnering participation. I can see a lot of our membership participating in that fashion.”
