On Oct. 31, during AAPEX 2018 in Las Vegas, NV, the Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG) held two successful events: the YANG Town Hall and a YANG Networking Happy Hour.


According to David Pinkham, YANG liaison for the Auto Care Association (ACA), “Feedback from both events was incredibly positive. The auto care industry has so many talented young people who appreciate being part of a thriving professional network and will always take advantage of the opportunities YANG has to offer. Professional development and networking are two key opportunities offered by YANG, and we greatly appreciate our members’ participation.”


The day began with YANG offering complimentary professional headshots from 10:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m at the Sands Expo. At 3:45 p.m., more than 100 attendees gathered at the Venetian Hotel for the YANG Town Hall, an AAPEXedu session featuring guest speaker Stacy Nadeau.


Pinkham shared, “Stacy spoke about the importance of self-talk and provided some tangible tips for how to bring your best self to work every day.”


The evening concluded with YANG’s Annual Networking Happy Hour and was held at Buddy V’s in the Grand Canal Shoppes. More than 200 YANG members and mentors attended the happy hour.


“AAPEX continues to be the single best opportunity for YANG to engage with large numbers of our members and supporters from across the country,” Pinkham said. “The primary purpose of these events was to engage the YANG membership at AAPEX through professional development and networking. By offering events that fulfill both goals, we provide tangible value to both the YANG member and their employer. Thank you to the YANG members and sponsors for allowing us the opportunity to continue to host these events and thus increase YANG’s recognition within the broader automotive industry.”
