The California Autobody Association (CAA) announced it will host two key meetings at NACE | CARS 2016.

Details for the two programs include:

Thursday, August 11, 10:30 a.m.: The Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) Panel

The Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR), along with the CAA and CCC, will answer questions pertaining to the BAR. The issues that will be covered will range from how to put the right paint and materials on your estimate to how to properly get the customer’s authorization under unusual circumstances.

Friday, August 12, 9 a.m.: Dave Jones, California insurance commissioner, presentation and industry update, including:

  • Update on what is going on in the department
  • Report on the labor rate survey regulation and how it will affect shops and the insurance company
  • Review of steering regulation and how it will protect consumers
  • Discuss crash parts and how it is being enforced
  • Address the issues that might affect consumers in the auto body industry

These programs are offered at no cost and everyone is welcome to attend, not just CAA members. For shop owners in California, the information presented in these sessions will impact business and provide important insight.

“Because of California’s size and population, the state addresses many key regulations,” said Dan Risley, ASA president and executive director. “Many of the issues that California deals with can impact the rest of the country. The programs CAA will offer during NACE | CARS 2016 will not only be of interest to California businesses but to shop owners from around the country and the world.”
