September is approaching fast, and that means it’s almost time for the annual Vehicle Service Contract Administrators Conference (VSCAC). Now entering its ninth year, VSCAC will take place at the Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino Sept. 10-12. The conference will be held alongside the F&I Conference, Subprime Conference and CRM Conference, all part of the annual Industry Summit.
The festivities begin Monday evening with an opening keynote address from Lewis Kuhl of Pathman Lewis LLP. Kuhl will present an update on new regulations and where the industry stands. Following the evening keynote, a welcome reception will be held in the exhibit hall. This is a great opportunity for attendees to walk the floor, see what the exhibiting companies are offering and network with others in the industry.
James Ganther of Mosaic Compliance Services will kick off the first full day on Tuesday morning with his keynote address: “Canceling Effect: Responding to a Dealership Closure.” From there, the day will be filled with panel sessions and workshops.
Tariq Kamal of AE and P&A magazines will serve as moderator for a panel of five individuals who will take up the debate between software as a service (SaaS) and in-house product administration. This panel is scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m., and will include Brent Allen of the StoneEagle Group; Provider Exchange Network’s Ron Greer; Matt Nowicki of Innovative Aftermarket Solutions (IAS); Kelly Price of National Automotive Experts; and F&I Administration Solutions LLC’s David Trinder.
Wednesday the agenda ends with a bang: F&I and Showroom’s Gregory Arroyo will lead a panel that will tackle the debate over the mobile menu and its effect on the F&I presentation. Arroyo will be joined by MaximTrak Technologies’ Jim Maxim; Shawn McCool of iTapMenu; Matt Nowicki of IAS; OptionSoft Technologies Inc.’s Nick Sennett; Mark Thorpe of The Impact Group; and the American Financial & Automotive Services Inc.’s Tom Wilson.
