The National Auto Body Council (NABC) will broadcast its upcoming Atlanta board meeting live online through the collision repair social networking site Collision Hub. The broadcast will being April 13 at 9 a.m. EDT. This is the second NABC meeting shown online through Collision Hub.
The partnership with Collision Hub allows NABC to open a meeting to the industry without being limited by geographic constraints, the association says. Collision Hub founder Kristen Felder and Dave Henderson of Autowatch both NABC members are responsible for the broadcast.
“Many within our industry want to participate in key events, but logistical or budgetary issues prevent them from doing so,” Felder said. “Through harnessing the power of the Internet and social networking technologies, we can help dismantle those barriers. It’s an opportunity to unite the industry further.”
NABC says the online broadcast reinforces its commitment of openness to the industry.
“We’ve always been about transparency,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “Collision Hub helps us make good on our goal by extending our industry reach more folks will gain exposure tow hat we do. It goes both ways, as well we’ll get direct feedback in live time from more people than ever. It’s a great chance to refine our focus on the needs of the industry.”
Felder noted that feedback from the last meeting broadcast which has been viewed over 400 times since January will be used to improve subsequent meeting broadcasts.
Anyone can view the meeting broadcast through the Collision Hub Web site, but only Collision Hub members can access an online chat room where questions and feedback can be submitted live during the meeting.
