Salvage yards and used auto parts distributors from all across Colorado will gather this weekend for our Annual Meeting, January 27-28. As the President of CAR, I wanted to post a blog with information about our association and meeting.
This year, we will hold our meeting at The Norris Penrose Event Center in Colorado Springs. We are hoping all the salvage yards that are CAR Member s will be in attendance. Auto salvage yards from Denver and the surrounding metro area will travel south to converge the all the auto salvage businesses in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and the surrounding southern areas of Colorado.
There will be social events on both Friday and Saturday night so that salvage yard owners can network, share ideas, and create beneficial business relationships. Owning and operating a used auto parts business is a different animal and these meetings and functions are an opportunity to learn industry specific systems of management and operations. The meeting will be held Saturday from 8am - 5pm and will feature DJ Harrington. DJ’s sessions are both informational and motivational and will help provide insights for CAR members to push forward with into the new year. Used auto parts sales and automotive salvage can be challenging, but events like this can help you understand how to take your salvage yard to the next level.
The meeting will also feature a trade show with some of the best vendors in the country. We were fortunate to have a great group of sponsors and vendors support the meeting this year. Salvage yards utilize many different software systems, core auto parts purchasers, and equipment. All of these industry vendors will be represented and salvage yard representatives are urged to network with vendors and find companies to help them thrive.
Salvage Yards, Used Auto Parts Distributors, New Auto Parts Sellers, Auto Salvage Companies, and even Junkyards are welcome to come and learn all they can at our annual meeting. We hope to see you there and thank you from the Colorado Automotive Recyclers!
