Terry Wynter, the owner of Terry Wynter Auto Service Center, is a member of the Mechanical Operations Committee for the Automotive Service Association (ASA). This committee, which is made up of auto shop owners from across the country, provides field input to the leaders of the ASA. Committee membership is by invitation only, and the members are selected in order to give a good cross section of the industry. The committee meets monthly via conference calls and annually in various locations. In June 2010, Terry met with the committee in Kansas City. In addition to the business meeting, he had the honor of being a judge at the SKILLS USA National Conference, for which high school students from across the country participated in a competition of various work-related skills, including auto mechanics. 

“It was a privilege to witness a large gathering of youth interested in perfecting trade skills and at the same time displaying professionalism and character that will carry them far into the future,” said Terry.

Terry Wynter Auto Service Center is a member of the A/C Delco network of preferred shops. A manufacturer of high quality auto parts, A/C Delco is a subsidiary of General Motors (GM), and Terry Wynter Auto Service Center is a member of the A/C Delco network of preferred shops. As a result, Kay Wynter, Terry’s wife and co-owner of Terry Wynter Auto Service center, has served on the A/C Delco National Advisory Council for several years and was the first woman to be nominated to this board. 

During the past year, Kay has been a part of the development of A/C Delco’s “Knowledge is Power” presentation program. This program is a “how-to” kit for shops to use when having car care seminars for women. The final product will be introduced across the country in late 2010. The A/C Delco National Advisory Council meets monthly via conference call and annually for a face-to-face meeting. The latest annual meeting took place in late September, when the group of shop owners from across the country met in Detroit. The management team of A/C Delco values the input from council members in order to make the best manufacturing and marketing decisions. 

“It is so beneficial to be associated with other professionals in the industry. We all bring something to the table,” said Kay.

As a special treat, Kay and the rest of the A/C Delco National Advisory Council had dinner in the GM Heritage Center among the historical vehicles in GM’s collection and took a tour of the On Star Command Center.
