Concerned About the Industry’s Workforce Shortage? So Are We.

In 2016, the Alliance founded and funded a new, non-profit organization called “MNCARS” – Minnesota Careers in Auto Repair and Service.  Its goal is to ensure a future workforce for Minnesota’s automotive service and collision repair industry by raising awareness and recruiting young people into technical college automotive education programs (collision and mechanical) and industry careers.  Learn more about MNCARS and our other career promotion efforts.
