The Michigan Chapter of NASF recently hosted its annual Auto Show Meeting luncheon during Industry Preview Week of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Held on Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017 at the offices of Butzel Long in Detroit, the event had a record attendance of 60 people, and this has become a premier event that members look forward to all year!
MINASF President Brian Harrick gave a Chapter update, and Christian

After the program, attendees gathered at Cobo Arena to tour the NAIAS and to be a part of the Industry Preview only open to automotive suppliers.
