Arizona's 1st Annual Shop Owner's Retreat

This time is meant to be a comfortable networking event for each of us to share the thoughts and questions we all have about our businesses.

Registration Fee is only $95 per shop!

This will be the first opportunity to hear a knowledgeable speaker about our industry. KIM AUERNHEIMER Owner, CS Automotive in Brentwood, TN.

Read Kim's bio

Kim will facilitate our group discussion to speak openly with other shop owners experiencing the same issues. This will be the time to ask any and all types of questions and share on any topics in an “off the record” setting.

Being able to get real answers and input from shop owners who have been in the business for generations and those just starting out is always an asset to members during all stages of ownership. We are all in this together and we, as your board hope every member makes it a priority to attend.

Think of the retreat as a getaway for your business, (best part, no employees!)

Friday, February 21 – Sunday, February 23rd

After moving to Tennessee from the Central Valley of California in 2005, she and her family quickly settled in and planted roots. CS Automotive was opened in October of 2006 in the back of warehouse and now they call a 6,400 square foot, 10-bay shop home.

Her belief in industry education has been a large influence on how much success and growth they have had over last few years. She has a passion to improve the reputation of the Automotive Repair industry working alongside other shop owners and industry leaders to improve the overall experience of the customer from the moment they make that first call to the shop until they drive their car off the lot instilling transparency and developing trust during the entire process.

In 2017, she obtained her Accredited Automotive Manager (AAM) designation. This is a result of 120-credit hours of course work in several core competencies including leadership, marketing, customer relations, accounting, and several other areas of automotive repair business management. In 2019, Kim earned the Accredited Master Automotive Manager (AMAM) designation by completing an additional 60 hours of management credits.
