LAS VEGAS — F&I product and technology provider IAS and F&I and Showroom magazine are looking to reward five lucky readers with a free pass to Industry Summit 2015 (Aug. 29-31) and a three-night stay at the Paris Las Vegas — the site of this year's event. The contest is being used to tee up a special workshop for F&I personnel agents that will be led by Joe St. John, director of training for IAS.

Readers interested in entering the Ask Joe Contest must submit topics they’d like St. John to cover during his session by Wednesday, Aug. 10. St. John will choose five reader topics and will address them during his Ask Joe session on Tuesday, Aug. 30, at 1 p.m. Industry Summit is scheduled for Aug.29-31 at the Paris Las Vegas.

“We’re very excited to have Joe back on the Industry Summit roster this year,” said David Gesualdo, publisher of F&I and Showroom and its sister publication, Auto Dealer Monthly. “And we’re also excited to once again be teaming up with IAS on this special contest. Make sure to get your topics in by the deadline.”

St. John earned his master’s degree in business taxation and tax accounting from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. His roots, however, are firmly planted in the car business. Before joining IAS in May 2014, he served as the sales manager, finance director, general manager and lead trainer for Lawton, Okla.-based Jim Norton Toyota.

Readers can submit as many topics as they want by clicking here, but St. John will only select one topic per person, and only five will win a complimentary Industry Summit pass, and a three-night stay at the Paris Las Vegas.
