I-CAR held its 2011 Eastern Regional Conference on March 11-12 in Nashville, Tenn., at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel. During the two-day conference, I-CAR instructors and volunteers from the Northeast and Southeast regions were recognized for their outstanding services throughout 2010.
I-CAR instructors and volunteers who attended the event had the opportunity to participate in regional breakout sessions, gain firsthand information on upcoming I-CAR news, including equivalency testing and information on the I-CAR Professional Development Program, and hear Clifton Lambreth’s keynote address.
As a former Ford employee of more than 20 years, Lambreth spoke to a crowd of more than 220 people about the actions he took to address strategies and solutions to improve Ford’s bottom-line performance and reputation as America’s automotive leader. Lambreth, the author of “Ford and the American Dream,” also spoke about how doing the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason, will get the right results.
“This Regional Conference gives I-CAR the opportunity to meet face-to-face with instructors and volunteers the people responsible for the success of I-CAR to discuss industry trends, celebrate their achievements over the past year and leave them with insights that will promote success in 2011,” said Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations.
