Best Practices for Working with Schools

Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at 1pm CT

About the Roundtable

The vast majority of shops and dealerships know how important it is to work with local high schools and post-secondary schools to help attract students and educate them about the industry.

However, calling up instructors on graduation day and asking for their best tech is not the way to go about it.

In this roundtable, we will discuss:

  • The value of working with schools
  • How to find the time to work with schools
  • Who to get involved
  • What things shops can do to actually help schools

This event is free, but you must register. Can’t attend live? Register anyway, and we’ll email you the recording after the event.
