Testimonials

The networking element of ACC membership is extremely valuable to me. The ACC has introduced me to other automotive industry marketing professionals in a setting (annual conference) that allows us to comfortably share our challenges and successes and learn from each other.  I have always learned something new at the conferences, and I especially enjoy the technicians’ panel discussions.  They have provided great insight into what types of marketing are most likely to appeal to these customers and ultimately be the most successful.

Building connections across the industry in the same field as you is completely invaluable. Over the past years I’ve been able to use the network I’ve built through ACC to help me break through walls and drive better decisions for my organization. I’ve found nothing that compares to ACC."
