Events Tailored to You
The Annual Meeting & Leadership Conference, Golf Outing, Race for Automotive Education and other events, offer chances to connect with other industry professionals and discuss everyday business concerns.
B.S. Sessions (for collision repair shops) and Mech XChange events (for auto service shops) are designed for shop owners and managers to get to know each other and share ideas with industry colleagues. Members can offer input on local and national issues, events and activities, and learn from others what is on the cutting-edge in their industry.

“I look forward to traveling to the Cities to attend the Annual Meeting & Leadership Conference each year. The classes I’ve attended have helped me keep my business moving in a positive direction.” – Travis Doyle, Arrowhead Auto Body, Duluth.
“I originally joined the Alliance thinking it was time to give back to the automotive service industry by being involved. Little did I know about the long-term relationships I’d develop and how much more I could learn by attending Mech XChange events and classes at the Annual Meeting & Leadership Conference. Great speakers and never any sales pitches.” – Wayne Watson, Auto Works Automotive Service Center, Woodbury.
Each year, the Alliance receives sponsorship support from its associate members and other industry vendors to help underwrite the cost of educational programming and other initiatives. These sponsorships make it possible for the association to deliver quality programs at an affordable cost.
“The AASP-MN Sponsorship program is a cost-effective way to showcase our company’s products and services to Alliance members. The Alliance offers several opportunities throughout the year that allow sponsors to help their current customers, meet potential customers, support AASP-MN and the automotive service industry at-large, not to mention, build their own businesses.” - McKenzie Spalding, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Eagan.
