DENVER (April 3, 2017) — Remaining relevant in an ever-changing automotive industry is no easy challenge. Seventeen years ago, the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) began as a voluntary, but loose, collaboration between automakers and the aftermarket. NASTF first crafted its mission statement at that time, and when the organization incorporated eleven years ago, it revisited and formalized its mission.
At the NASTF Board of Directors meeting in November 2016, the Board voted to convene a strategic planning retreat to develop a vision statement and identify key strategies and goals. This meeting was held April 2-3, 2017 in Denver CO, and brought together directors, committee co-chairs and thought leaders from the NASTF membership. Attendees included (alphabetically) Bob Augustine, Scott Brown, Bob Chabot, Chris Chesney, Steve Douglas, Doug Greenhaus, Claude Hensley, Aaron Lowe, John Lypen, Rob Morrell, Allen Pennebaker, Skip Potter, Jill Saunders, Mark Saxonberg, Trish Serratore, Donny Seyfer, Bob Stewart and Mark Warren.
