IGONC Meeting Focused on New Employees

Written by

On April 11, the Independent Garage Owners of North Carolina (IGONC) held a Triangle Chapter meeting at CTI in Raleigh sponsored by CARQUEST.

Chris Chesney, Senior Director, Customer Training, Advance Auto Parts – CARQUEST Technical Institute, delivered an “interesting and informative presentation about where the future mechanics and technicians would be coming from,” according to Bob Pulverenti, Executive Director of IGONC.


Pulverenti stated, “Our members rely on us to filter information and get it to them in order to make them more successful without wasting precious time. This was a great meeting with a few new programs discussed, encouraging garages to get involved with mentoring students interested in the automotive industry. The attendees were very interested. It is difficult for many of them to find reliable and qualified technicians, plus, these events are always a good chance for local garage owners to come together, trade ideas, and socialize with friends.”
