I-CAR Announces 2009 International Advisory Committee

The I-CAR International Advisory Committee (IAC) added four new members in December who will assist the committee. The IAC serves as a communication link between the I-CAR International Board of Directors and staff and the volunteers who deliver training to the collision inter-industry.

The new members of the committee include: Leo Maki, Michigan Appraisal Service; Wendy Brent, GEICO; Roger Bloom, State Farm Insurance; and Patrice Marcil, DuPont Canada.

“I’m very excited to welcome the four new members of I-CAR’s International Advisory Committee,” said Bill Stage of Akzo Nobel Coatings and co-chairman of the committee. “The IAC is the direct voice of I-CAR volunteers to the Board of Directors. The addition of the newest members provides a good cross representation of the I-CAR zones and international licensees.”

Stage added, “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Thompson of State Farm, Theresa Kostick of All Line CARSTAR, and Rodney Hughes in Canada, whose terms on the committee have expired. Their many years of dedicated service to the International Advisory Committee have benefited the organization.”

Over the past year, the IAC has worked with I-CAR’s local volunteers to focus the training organization’s effort to improve I-CAR class attendance and develop strategies to recruit the next generation of I-CAR volunteers and instructors.

The 2009 International Advisory Committee members include: Doug Middleton, co-chairman, retired I-CAR regional manager; Bill Stage, co-chairman, AkzoNobel Car Refinishes, N.A.; Robert Cinibulk, senior advisor, retired Professional Material Damage Consultants; Greg Gunter, Western Zone, Greg’s Auto Body; Tom Lantz, Western Zone, Leading Edge; Ken Loper, Western Zone, Knudtsen Chevrolet Body Shop; Roger Bloom, Central Zone, State Farm Insurance; Leo Maki, Central Zone, Michigan Appraisal Service; Milton Parrish, Eastern Zone, Parrish Body Shop; Wendy Brent, Eastern Zone, GEICO Insurance; Bob Rogers, Eastern Zone, State Farm Insurance; Patrice Marcil, Canada, DuPont Canada; Robert Renwick, New Zealand, I-CAR New Zealand; and Richard Pratt, Australia, I-CAR Australia.
