SCRS Open Board Meeting on January 23

On Wednesday morning, January 23, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will hold an open board meeting from 8:00 – 10:00am in Palm Springs, California. The meeting, preceding the National Auto Body Council (NABC) golf tournament, will be held in the Plaza A & B rooms of the Palm Springs Hilton. The two hour meeting will include updates from the SCRS staff and committees, outlining current and future work initiatives the association has undertaken on behalf of its membership.

The meeting will include a detailed presentation from the SCRS Education Committee, led by committee member Toby Chess. The topic will focus on areas of friction between repair facilities and insurance companies surrounding proper frame and structural repair approaches; including specific misunderstandings that exist in the marketplace and the proper methodology to address welding, pulling, repairing or replacing frame’s on today’s modern fleet.

“Understanding the highly specific requirements that automobile manufacturers expect of repair facilities, should foster an appreciation for the level of complexity involved in these types of repairs,” said SCRS Education Committee Chairman, Paul Val. “Toby and the committee have done a great job compiling information that exists in the marketplace, and sculpting it into a presentation that should hopefully eliminate some of the tension that exists in this area by broadening the understanding of necessary procedures and equipment.”

This meeting is open to any member of the industry who wishes to attend, and there is no registration fee.
