The Network Hosts Hundreds Of Discussions Between Members, Vendor Partners During Spring Meeting

The Automotive Distribution Network hosted 450 one-on-one ­discussions between its members and manufacturer partners during its recent spring membership meeting in Atlanta, according to Mike Lambert, president of the Network.

“This was a unique opportunity for our Network members to meet face to face with several of our vendors in one day to examine any issues, provide feedback from the street and discuss ­promotional opportunities,” Lambert said. “The mini-sessions were fast-paced yet still enabled our manufacturers to have quality time with the members.”

Over the three-day proceedings, the Network’s members also ­reviewed primary product lines, received updates on the group’s cutting-edge IT initiatives and discussed marketing plans for 2013. Committee members also met to help chart the future direction of the Network.

“As a member-driven organization, our spring and fall meetings help to ensure that the Network is continually developing programs and making product decisions that will benefit our members and their customers at the street level,” Lambert said.

The gathering also featured appearances by Parts Plus driver Clay Millican and Auto Pride’s Bob Vandergriff Jr., who race together as a multicar team under the BVR banner in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
