News: AAA Says Record Number of Americans Will Hit the Road Over July 4 Holiday
Barrett Smith, president/founder of ADE, will speak on what can and can’t be discussed among repairers without fear of breaching federal anti-trust laws.
Barrett Smith, AAM, president and founder of Auto Damage Experts Inc. (ADE), will be presenting to members and guests of the newly formed Auto Body Association of Texas (ABAT) at its first meeting on Wednesday, June 18, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Henderson Civic Center located at 1005 Highway 64, West Henderson, Texas, 75662.
“We are excited to have Barrett join us and provide information on several topics the board has requested, including what can and cannot be discussed among repairers without fear of breaching federal anti-trust laws," said Burl Richards, ABAT acting president. "The ongoing misunderstanding by repairers has created an unnecessary fear and has, for far too long, intimidated and silenced repairers across our state and the rest of the country.
“Barrett is known for his ongoing efforts to help improve the industry through his thought-provoking messages to help repairers to think ‘outside the box,’ and we’re excited to have him join us in our first general membership meeting. The association’s goal will be to educate, equip and empower its members. All Texas collision repairers are invited. There’s a great deal of excitement about the new association, and we anticipate having 40 to 50 repairers represented at the meeting.”
