On Sept. 18, the Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) hosted a Regional Meetup in conjunction with the Auto Care Association’s 2019 Fall Leadership Days and Legislative Summit, held at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

The event was sponsored by Sensata Technologies and Schrader TPMS Sensors. Jacki Lutz, head of Global Marketing Communications and Intelligence of Aftermarket Business for Sensata Technologies, said, “The YANG membership is always extremely appreciative of its sponsors and any opportunity to network, and the feedback from this event was very positive. It was everything I thought it would be: good food, great people.”


YANG members also had the opportunity to attend the ACA’s 2019 Fall Leadership Days and Legislative summit. This three-day event served as an opportunity for the association’s most engaged members to discuss industry issues and association initiatives, while the Legislative Summit offered a forum for addressing industry issues and sharing them on Capitol Hill.


“The YANG Luncheon was very nicely put together by the venue. The food spread was incredible and it was great to have a nice sit-down meal and network with fellow YANG members,” Lutz stated. “Sensata Technologies and Schrader TPMS Sensors were very proud to sponsor this event. Sensata is a huge promoter of building and retaining young talent, and Schrader is fortunate to be a part of the Sensata family and help encourage meetings like this in the industry.”


“YANG’s main purpose is to network, and that is really what the luncheon was all about. It was simply providing a scheduled event for the members to get together, connect and continue building those career-long relationships that are so important in the automotive aftermarket,” Lutz explained. “Having official meet-ups like these really make a world of difference on how the industry works together. Bringing people together in a neutral setting from all different channels is crucial to building a strong industry that continues to find success.”
