JULY MEETING ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 18 — Bill Pollack, CEO of Chinese vehicle importer CHAMCO Auto to discuss coming to America at July 18 — special third-Wednesday — meeting.

Europe, Japan and Korea have historically been the primary sources of non-NAFTA trucks and cars in the North American market and, according to all the “experts,” the next region to produce vehicles for here will be China (its producers operating either in partnership with domestic nameplates or under their own banner). Bill Pollack, CEO of CHAMCO Auto, one of the most recently announced Chinese intenders for this market, will provide his version of a Chinese auto maker’s emigration to America at the July meeting of the International Motor Press Association. PLEASE NOTE: this month’s meeting will be a day early, the third Wednesday, July 18, at the 3 West Club, 3 West 51st Street, New York. Pollack’s presentation will follow the noon reception and lunch and will conclude with an open question-and-answer session. Tickets are $35 for members, $45 for others. CHAMCO Auto hopes to next year begin selling a pickup and SUV.
