Basic 20 Group Rules - Members

  • If you are an FCA service manager or parts manager, we encourage you to participate in their Service & Parts Manager 20 Group program. MBA Fixed Operations 20 Groups are NOT designed to compete or replace FCA's 20 Groups.
  • Proper attire is required for both days of our meetings. Business casual is our code. No jeans. No sneakers. Ties and sport coats are NOT required.
  • We encourage all dealership members to bring a "Best Practice" with them to each meeting  to formally present the idea to the group in our "Best Practice Session". One idea per store is requested. Any entry fees are the responsibility of the presenting manager(s). See your moderator for details.

Dealers and General Managers

Many times dealers or general managers like to attend our meetings and we encourage them to do so! Anytime two or more managers attend our 20 Group meetings, a dealer or general manager may attend free of charge! (Travel expenses are not included.) Otherwise, standard enrollement fees apply.
