We endeavor to have speakers, at our Breakfast meetings & Business Sessions, that provide timely, informative input on issues that affect our members. The association concentrates its efforts on supporting schools or universities that have programs for parts, business programs, heavy duty and/or diesel mechanics. Our support to five institutions has grown where our contributions, have grown to over $50,000 per institution. This allows our Chapter to provide annual awards in the range of $500.00 to $1000.00 per year to high performing students at each of these schools.
We are also supporting the Entrepreneurial Leadership Program, through the universities’ School of Business, for those graduates seeking careers in sales, marketing and management positions.
Cost of membership is $395.00 per year in dues. Included in your dues is one seat at each Breakfast meeting. Additional members currently pay $40.00 to cover the cost of the meal. Three events each year are pay as you go’, Christmas lunch/auction, Social Night, Golf and the Annual General Meeting.
We are a non-profit organization and it should be noted that dues do not fully support the association’s work.
Our annual Christmas auction is our major fundraiser and is supported by our members and guests who bring items for auction or door prizes. Outstanding in their generosity is the publication The Supply Post who donates banners on their website, and pages of advertising for auction.
Our annual Golf Tournament is followed by a buffet dinner and Annual General Meeting. The tournament is a modified “Texas Scramble” format with the emphasis being on the team and not individual performance.
If you have any questions regarding our association or the membership, please do not hesitate to give us a call. Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you.
