Join SCRS for Open Board Meeting in January

Mechanicsville, Virginia, January 1, 2020 – The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will host an open board meeting on Wednesday, January 15 from 3:00 – 5:00pm in the Tapestry room at the Hilton in Palm Springs, California.

The board meeting will precede the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) reception later in the evening, and the CIC meeting the following day.

The SCRS board of directors welcomes anyone wishing to learn more about the current state of the association’s activities and pressing industry topics, to the open meeting. The agenda encourages interactive conversation with the meeting participants and serves as an opportunity to share topical feedback with the association as well. Attendees are not required to be a member of SCRS to participate, there is no cost, and pre-registration is not required.

The meeting will include updates and presentations from SCRS staff and committees outlining current and future work initiatives and will feature the annual presentation of “Kool Tools From the SEMA Show and Beyond” led by SCRS Education Committee members Toby Chess and Kye Yeung.

The highlighted tools, found by members of the Education Committee during the SEMA Show, illuminate unique solutions that stood out to committee members as solutions that would be helpful in the collision repair process.
