Industry Invited to Attend Collision Repair Education Foundation’s Annual Reception at SEMA 2016

During the reception, industry members will have the opportunity to meet and greet attending collision school instructors and students and hear about the organization’s efforts to support high school and post-secondary collision students.

Collision industry members are invited to join the Collision Repair Education Foundation during their annual reception Nov. 1st from 9 to 10:30 p.m. in the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino Conference Rooms 1-6 during SEMA 2016.

During the reception, attendees will hear about the organization’s efforts to support high school and post-secondary collision students. Plus, 2016 donors/supporters will be highlighted and winners of the annual 2016 Ultimate Collision Education Makeover school grant will be announced. Industry members will also have an opportunity to meet and greet attending collision school instructors and students.

“We are inviting the industry to join us Tuesday evening of SEMA to not only hear the announcement of hundreds of thousands of dollars being distributed to high school and college collision school programs but also learn about our new initiatives in ensuring students are job-ready day one after graduation and connecting students with industry employers around the country,” said Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode. “Please consider joining us for this event as our organization is unique in the fact that, while there are many worthwhile and great charitable causes, the Education Foundation is supporting the industry’s future and everyone should be invested in that cause.”

Additional details of the event will be made available as the date approaches. However, industry members are asked to RSVP for the reception by emailing attendee information to [email protected]. Questions regarding the reception and/or the Education Foundation’s efforts to support the future of the collision industry can be directed to Eckenrode at [email protected] or (847) 463-5244.
