AMI Announces 2009 Emil Stanley Merit Award Recipient

The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) and the Automotive Service Association (ASA) announced today that Terri Neely, director of operations for Nagy’s Body & Frame, Inc., Doylestown, Ohio, is the recipient of this year’s Emil Stanley Merit Award.

The award honors Emil Stanley who was publisher of Automotive Body Repair News until his death in 1989. Stanley was committed to strengthening the professionalism of the collision repair industry through education. He was recognized as a strong advocate of the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE), the world’s largest collision repair event sponsored annually by ASA.

Neely has worked in the collision industry for more than 5 years and is currently working on completing the necessary requirements to earn the Institute’s Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation. When not working in the shop, she contributes her time to various industry and community organizations.

As the scholarship recipient, Neely will receive $1,000 to be applied toward expenses to attend AMI seminars offered during NACE 2009, Nov. 4-7 in Las Vegas.

“I am grateful to receive this year’s Emil Stanley Merit Award. I have seen the positive results that excellent management training has had on our business and my career. I’m looking forward to seeing the expo, attending some great training classes and mingling with other successful shop owners and managers from around the world,” said Neely.

The Emil Stanley award is made possible by a grant from ASA to EXCEL, AMI’s resource development program.
