Electrical Rebuilder's Association
EXPO 2017 ANNOUNCEMENT


Most of you are aware that the Electrical Rebuilding Industry lost one of its best friends, mentors and supporters of the business last June. Dick Vensel spent his whole life working in the rebuilding industry. He was a lifelong member of the Automotive Parts Remanufacturing Association (APRA) and a founding member of the Electrical Rebuilder’s Association (ERA). 

To honor Dick’s participation in both associations in 2017,
the ERA Board of Directors have decided to honor both associations memberships and allow APRA members to participate in the 2017 Tradeshow/Training Event in Dearborn, Michigan this April for the ERA member price. 

Show your appreciation for all that Dick has shared with all of us for a lifetime by attending this event.
