N.D. Auto Body Association Affiliates With SCRS

N.D. Auto Body Association Affiliates with Society of Collision Repair Specialists

Move by NDABA marks a continued growth in state-level affiliation with SCRS.

The North Dakota Auto Body Association (NDABA) has announced an affiliation with the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS), marking a continued growth in state-level affiliation with the national association. In its formative stages, the NDABA was established to address industry issues and pave the road ahead for member businesses.

“We have a really long and proud history in North Dakota, logging almost as many years on the timeline as SCRS does,” said NDABA President Scott Heintzman of Fargo, N.D. “We’ve seen a lot of trends come into the industry and evolve, and as business owners ourselves it is critical to align ourselves with the strongest resources to help both our members and their consumers.

“We’ve seen some really spectacular work come out of the programs SCRS has put together, specifically their focus in delivering information through their new Repairer Driven News site, and the education programs they are putting together with the Repairer Driven Education series held at the SEMA Show. These are the types of things that our organization would like to tap into and bring to a local level to our own members.”

Added SCRS Chairman Ron Reichen, “The interest and support from such tenured and respected state associations like NDABA really affords SCRS with added opportunity to serve our mission to educate, inform and represent the industry. It is a great validation for us when the programs we develop to better serve the industry generate and attract new interest. The more support we receive – whether from the network of affiliate associations or directly from individual shops – the more we can do toward the benefit of those we represent. Just based on the objectives of both of our groups, the whole board is excited about the addition of the NDABA and look forward to what comes next.”
