The Triangle Chapter of the Independent Garage Owners of North Carolina (IGONC) met at Buffalo Brothers Pizza & Wings in Raleigh, NC, on April 3. 

IGONC Executive Director Bob Pulverenti stated, “This was our monthly get-together to socialize, learn new things and continue to support each other and the after-market auto industry. We maintain that these events offer a lot of support to our members, who can be a great asset to each other.”


When the scheduled speaker for the evening had to cancel due to illness, Pulverenti stepped up to the plate and provided an update on the current progress made in planning the 2018 Automotive Service and Technology Expo (ASTE), which is scheduled for Sept. 28 and 29. 


Pulverenti shared, “The ASTE is held every year by IGONC to provide a weekend of classes, social events and a vendor trade show to keep our members on top of the latest innovations and products in the after-market automotive industry. Our members always enjoy hearing about the build-up to the ASTE, especially now that it’s growing. After selling out of vendor space last year, and even more interest by new vendors this year, we have increased the space as well as the amount of classes, and our members are really excited!”


The group also heard from Randy Lisk, executive director of AAAMS, and Pulverenti introduced IGONC’s newest vendor member, Steven Clark of Capital One Small Business Cards. 


“After the last-minute change in speakers, everything went very well. We were all glad to see our newest vendor member already jumping into meetings,” Pulverenti said.
