THIS WEEK: Cleaner Auto Shops in the Works

October 14, 2013

Do you live near Portland? Do you work at an auto body or repair shop?  We’re not spying on you. But we do know of an event you might be interested in.

On Thursday, October 17th at 6pm, EcoBiz is hosting “Keep Your Shop in Tune,” an informal workshop at Green Drop Garage (1417 SE 9th Ave, Portland, OR). This free event is aimed at helping auto shop owners and managers run a clean and competitive business.

Over beer and some pizza,  you’ll have an opportunity to learn from others and share your experiences. Two guest speakers include Jim Houser from Hawthorne Auto Clinic, and Farhad Ghafarzade from Green Drop Garage. They will discuss recruiting & hiring practices, creating unique community partnerships, and social media strategies, among other useful topics.

EcoBiz Associate Mitchell Frister says that this workshop-style event will be the first of many for Portland area businesses. Future events will tackle energy efficiency upgrades, new products, and best management practices. For more information, or to RSVP please email mfrister@pprc.org.

PPRC is EcoBiz’s partner in establishing ecological standards for regional businesses.
