AASP/MA Hosts Successful Midstate Chapter Meeting

Written by


On Nov. 14, AASP/MA hosted its Midstate Chapter Meeting at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School in Marlborough, MA.


According to AASP/MA Executive Director Lucky Papageorg, “The meeting went very well and was a success. I tend to set my expectations high and would have loved to see the room overflowing, but it was a very good beginning for the first chapter meeting held in the Central Massachusetts area in quite some time. The enthusiasm expressed by the attendees and their commitment to bringing fellow shop owners to future chapter meetings will only breed success for all those involved in AASP/MA as we move forward!”


The meeting, sponsored by Don Kennett Inc. Automotive Paint and Body Supplies, featured a full line-up of informational presentations. Beginning at 6 p.m. with light fare and refreshments, the educational portion of the evening kicked off with a town hall where attendees were encouraged to voice their concerns as association leadership shared information on AASP/MA’s long-term goals.


The evening proceeded with a live interactive webinar demo of EstimateScrubber, and attendees received a free access trial for 30 days. Finally, Bill Enross, cPrax Marketing, provided information related to the rollout of AASP/MA’s new website and encouraged feedback from members.


“In general, the attendees responded very well to the presentation of both the EstimateScrubber estimating program and the rollout of the new AASP/MA website as well as an open town meeting forum on AASP/MA future plans. There were many great questions and suggestions of additional features that would be helpful to the members as well as consumers,” Papageorg shared.


“The purpose of the meeting was to garner information from the members as well as to provide them with value-added information that they can utilize in their businesses. Providing information is just one important aspect of the meetings, the other being getting shops together and creating an atmosphere of camaraderie. We want shops to know that they are NOT ‘the only ones’ and that AASP/MA is working on their behalf as well as their customers.”
