Organizational Update

GenNext has been busy early in 2020 with its participation at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) in January and its preparations for the 2020 GenNext and Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN) Distributor Training Expo and upcoming first quarter webinar.

GenNext’s opening webinar of the year will be held at 11 a.m. ET on March 25. The free 30-minute webinar will be led by Dinex North American Sales Manager Sebastian Houde. GenNext says Houde’s presentation will help attendees better understand the functionality of aftertreatment systems and offer troubleshooting tips for diesel particulate filters (DPF), diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technologies.

“Registering and attending one of the GenNext webinars, such as the upcoming session provided by Dinex, provides upcoming industry leaders easy access to learn more about a specific topic relevant to the commercial vehicle aftermarket,” says Meritor’s Justine Scriptunas, who also serves as GenNext’s education chair. “GenNext strives to provide pertinent content so that we can continue learning and support on-going career development.”

GenNext is also soliciting suggestions for future educational webinars and says all aftermarket professionals are welcome to suggest a topic to the organization’s Education committee that could be covered in future quarters. Potential ideas can be sent to or
