SCRS Open Board Meeting on July 22nd

On Monday, July 22nd, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will hold an open board meeting from 3:00 – 5:00pm in Boston, Massachusetts. The meeting held in the Hancock Room of the Westin Boston Waterfront, will be open to anyone wishing to learn more about the association’s activities. The two hour meeting will include updates from SCRS staff and committees, outlining current and future work initiatives the association has undertaken on behalf of its membership.

The meeting will also include a detailed presentation from the SCRS Education Committee, led by committee member Toby Chess. The topic will focus on repairing aluminum using stud welding and dent pulling equipment technologies which meet prescribed heating limitations. The presentation will feature the premier of a multimedia instructional video and in-person discussion which will walk through step-by-step methodologies that can create profitable repair scenarios in your collision business.

“It is critical for collision repair businesses to understand the repair options that are available in the industry,” shared SCRS Chairman Ron Reichen. “Paul Val, Toby Chess and the Education Committee have put together a presentation that demonstrates how certain repair procedures and equipment can produce extremely beneficial results that aid the consumer through cost effective repair methodology, while still producing high quality, profitable repair work.”

SCRS will also welcome Molly Broduer, Vice President of the SCRS affiliate association, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers Massachusetts (AASP-MA). Broduer will give a brief update on current activities taking place in the state and an overview of efforts underway by the state association.
