Auto Body Association of Connecticut Affiliates with SCRS

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced that the Auto Body Association of Connecticut (ABAC) is its newest affiliate association, bringing the total number of SCRS affiliates to 37.

An advocate for repairer and consumer rights in its state, ABAC has been involved with a number of high-profile industry-related activities. Earlier in the year, SCRS invited Connecticut Attorney General Richard A. Blumenthal – with whom the ABAC has a close working relationship – to be the keynote speaker at last April’s SCRS annual meeting in Hartford, Conn. ABAC and SCRS members had an opportunity to share dialogue at this event, at which time it became evident the two associations shared a passionate commitment to the industry.

"SCRS’ heightened focus to be ‘repairer driven’ was very appealing, and we saw that SCRS affiliation would offer our membership definite advantages," said ABAC President Bob Skrip. "They have a forward-thinking mindset that places repair concerns ahead of any other. Our members will get an up-close-and-personal view of national issues, valuable exposure to help them move their businesses forward. We also become part of a large professional industry network; one can never underestimate the importance of strength in numbers."
 
SCRS says ABAC is a welcome addition to the organization.

"Not only is ABAC active, they are engaged in a wide variety of activities," said SCRS Chairman Barry Dorn. "Whether it is a television advertising campaign informing vehicle owners of their rights, getting standards adopted by the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles or successfully pursuing enforcement of existing regulations on behalf of the collision industry in their state, they are always striving to help repairers and those we serve."
