Prior to Wednesday evening’s festivities, the ABPA will once again work with the National Auto Body Council (NABC) in assisting a local family in need of reliable transportation. This will be the fifth year we have held this event during the ABPA Convention and it is not to be missed! We encourage all ABPA attendees to participate in this great charitable event as the keys are handed over to the deserving family.

The ABPA would like to thank its sponsors for the event with a special thank you to our Platinum including CAPA/Intertek, Partslink Numbering System, TYC/Genera and Go-Parts!

A full list of sponsors can be found on our website as well as information on how your company can be a sponsor.

I look forward to seeing you all in Nashville!
