The Iowa Collision Repair Association (ICRA) will be holding its 4th Fall Collision Industry Day on Oct. 20.
The half-day educational program will feature noted industry speaker G.B. Outlaw giving a presentation called, "Leadership and
Leading Change." The presentation will clearly define the founding
principles to lead a change effort.
"After attending a session led by Outlaw, I felt
re-energized and excited about realizing the potential my shop can
achieve," said Christy Jones, ICRA secretary.
"Outlaw’s work not only
applies to your business but to your personal life as well."
The dinner guest speaker will be Chuck Gosney with Collision
Billing Services. Gosney has joined attorney Erica Eversman to create a
database solution for the independent collision repairer that will provide a unique approach to assisting repairers in
obtaining payment from insurers for repair work. The database will track
insurer payment information submitted by repairers that will be used to
document what repairs, rates and materials have been charged and what payment
has been made by an insurer on the consumer’s behalf.
ICRA lobbyist Scott Weiser and Representative Tom Sands (R-Iowa City) will also speak at the dinner
"We’re pleased to bring the quality of these
programs to the Iowa collision industry," says ICRA President Mark Martin. "It’s important that we continue to pay attention and move forward, and I
think these programs have tremendous value for our shops."
