MAM Software, a leading provider of business management software solutions, announced that it will be supporting the University of the Aftermarket (UAF) with a recurring annual donation. The 3-year pledge will total $20,000 by 2017.
The University of the Aftermarket is an educational alliance of the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA) and Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA). Its website says that its mission is “to meet the management, business and leadership education and development needs of professionals working within the motor vehicle aftermarket.”
MAM Software was drawn to UAF because of its commitment to creating, promoting, and managing a widely recognized curriculum that covers industry-wide and custom educational courses of study. The program funds hundreds of scholarships for UAF programs, provides scholarship and grant money in conjunction with the GAAS scholarship program, and financially assists in the development of new curriculum, course materials, and textbooks.
“The University of the Aftermarket develops professionals who will define our industry in the near future,” said Patrick Maley, MAM Software’s President. “Programs—like those offered by the University— need to be in place so students have opportunities to pursue their interests and make a big impact on the automotive aftermarket. We’re in a position to help provide those opportunities, and are thankful to the University for giving us a medium through which to contribute.”
