Vehicle Protection Association (VPA) to Hold Annual Meeting in Las Vegas on September 26, 2011

Members will meet to discuss the association's ongoing efforts to promote regulatory transparency, education, and accountability for marketing and servicing of automotive service contracts.

Selbyville, DE, July 11, 2011 -- The Vehicle Protection Association (VPA) today announced that it will convene its annual meeting on Monday, September 26, 2011 at the Monte Carlo Resort and Conference Center, 3770 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas NV 89109.

The annual meeting will begin at 10:00 AM with a session covering VPA member and business issues. The meeting will continue with a buffet lunch and networking session at about noon, followed by presentations from guest speakers and a wrap-up of the work the association has been pursuing on its members' behalf. Training sessions will be incorporated as well. There will be ample time for a Q&A session so attendees can get answers to their questions about the association and ongoing developments in the vehicle service contract industry.

The VPA's annual meeting takes place the same week as the The F&I Conference & Expo, Special Finance Conference, and Vehicle Service Contract Administrator's Conference, each of which are also being held in Las Vegas. This year, these three conferences, focusing heavily on automotive finance and insurance, have been aggregated into a single conference: Industry Summit 2011. Although the VPA is not affiliated with the conference organizers for Industry Summit 2011, many VPA meeting attendees opt to attend both the F&I Conference and the VPA annual meeting.

Registration forms for the VPA meeting are available on the VPA website. A detailed meeting agenda will soon be available.

To register for lodging for the VPA annual meeting, call: (888) 529-4828 or on-line at: There is no association discount that would be lower than the current rates so register early. Dress is business casual.
