Connecticut Association Joins NABC - BodyShop Business

Connecticut Association Joins NABC

The Connecticut Collision Repair Specialists (CCRS), a non-profit collision repairer association, has become a member of the National Autobody Council (NABC).
The CCRS says the NABC’s “inclusive” policy that welcomes repairers, suppliers, parts vendors and insurers fits with the CCRS’ values.
“We subscribe to the mission of NABC and its desire to build unity between those responsible for delivering a safe, quality repair to the vehicle owner,” said CCRS Executive Director Lisa Siembab. “Both organizations understand that cooperation, openness and effective communication provide the best end result and believe that the approach can work without compromising anyone’s best interests.”
This year, CCRS will participate in NABC’s Recycled Rides initiative. The group is
committing to the reconstruction of four vehicles to be handed off to needy families in conjunction with the Thanksgiving holiday.  

CCRS is the first body shop association to join the ranks of NABC.

“One of our goals has always been to provide opportunities broad enough to allow associations like CCRS to promote themselves and their members,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “The Recycled Rides program is a good example of this, and we are excited to have the folks in Connecticut on board. As a result, their communities will get a close look at the quality repair facilities in their neighborhoods and the outstanding people that work in them. We hope they prove to be the first of many associations to become involved in our mission of helping improve industry image one consumer at a time.”
