On Nov. 12, the Triangle Chapter of the Independent Garage Owners of North Carolina (IGONC) held its monthly meeting at Red Hot and Blue in North Raleigh, NC. According to IGONC Executive Director Bob Pulverenti, “Despite the ‘arctic blast’ and rain, we had a good turnout for the Triangle Chapter Meeting.”
IGONC discussed plans for the association’s annual Christmas party and provided updates on the North Carolina Automotive Apprenticeship Program. The guest speaker for the evening was PJ Leslie of Tekmetric, IGONC’s new vendor member, and he taught attendees about Tekmetric’s shop management system.
Pulverenti stated, “The attendees responded with quite a few questions about Tekmetric and their product. Our members really came away with some good information on their shop management system.”
“We were very happy with the turnout,” Pulverenti added. “Without these types of events, it would be very difficult for shops to filter through the information about new trainings and products without wasting a lot of time.”
In addition to offering a forum where IGONC members can learn about new products, the association’s monthly meetings provide an opportunity for industry professionals to network and build relationships with their peers.
