Toyota, Subaru and General Motors executives have confirmed their attendance, and several other OEM service operation support divisions have indicated their possible attendance. The NASTF meeting agenda will include new participants as they are confirmed.

“NASTF plays a unique role in the automotive industry as the contact point between independent technicians and service operation support executives inside each of the original equipment automobile manufacturers," said Skip Potter, executive director of NASTF. “Our General Meetings provide the opportunity for shop owners, their technicians and service writers to engage, face-to-face, in productive conversations with OEM service support representatives concerning OEM service resources."

Mark Saxonberg, service technology manager for Toyota; Kelly Geist, service engineering manager for Subaru; and Bob Stewart, aftermarket service support for GM will participate in presentations and panel discussions during the meeting.

The NASTF General Meeting is scheduled from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 8 in the Overland Park Convention Center near Kansas City. There is no charge to attend the NASTF meeting but there is a fee to register for other educational sessions at the VISION conference.
