2020 AASPI Annual Meeting February 22, 2020 – Elmhurst, IL

Mark your calendar NOW for an exciting program being offered by the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of Illinois (AASPI). February 22, 2020 is the date for the AASPI 2020 Annual Meeting at the Diplomat West in Elmhurst, IL. The program will feature Kristen Felder, CEO of Collision Hub, the industry’s largest social media audience and the #1 collision industry provider of training, event coverage and news.

Kristen Felder is a highly sought after presenter for the collision industry. As CEO of Collision Hub, Kristen has been a keynote presenter at national events, webinars, training videos and statewide industry events. Kristen’s incredible passion for the collision repair industry has deep roots. She grew up in the family body shop performing repairs, painting and managing the shop before her senior year of high school. She graduated with honors from Arkansas State University with a B.S in Public Relations and was immediately offered a position with State Farm Insurance Companies, beginning a 14-year career in the insurance industry. Every day, her insights and experiences help her to ease the relationships between shops and insurers.

Lessons are often best learned from our own experience but can hurt less when we learn from others. With over 20 years of experience in repairs and insurance claims, Collision Hub will break down the lessons learned by others for documentation and negotiation skills. Learn what pitfalls to avoid in your daily handling of customers, vendors and adjusters. Review real case studies showing the steps for Negotiation preparation and how insurers choose their battlefields.

Attendees will leave this event armed with a new set of tools to make repairs simple and profitable.
