NASTF Launching Technician Outreach Program

The National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF), in an attempt to interact with additional professional technicians, will hold its spring 2013 general meeting and board meeting at the next Vision HiTech Training & Expo, which will be held March 7-10 in Overland Park, KS.

The event is organized by ASA-Missouri/Kansas and is expected to draw 3,000-plus automotive service professionals. On tap are more than 85 management and technical training courses designed for shop owners, managers, technicians and educators, as well as a 60,000-square-foot exhibit hall featuring tools, equipment and services. NASTF will have a presence on the show floor.

This is part of an outreach effort by NASTF, designed to expand well beyond its current base of less than 2,500 industry participants. The leadership of NASTF wants to create greater awareness of the task force and have more contact with technicians across the United States.

The technician outreach campaign will focus on two primary elements: Expanding the number of events where NASTF will mingle in person with techs; and driving techs to the NASTF website where they can find OEM resources.
