NABC Broadcasting Meeting Online through Collision Hub

The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced that its meeting slated for Jan. 13 at 7:30 a.m. PST will be broadcast live on the collision repair social networking Web site Collision Hub.

Anyone with broadband Internet access can access the video by visiting the Collision Hub Web site ( and clicking on the Collision Hub TV Page link. Collision Hub membership isn’t necessary to access the live stream, but membership is required to access an online chat room where questions and comments can be posted during the broadcast.

Collision Hub founder and CEO Kristen Felder and Dave Henderson of Autowatch – both NABC members – brought the idea to NABC before NACE.

“Many within our industry want to participate in key events, but logistical or budgetary issues prevent them from doing so,” Felder said. “Through harnessing the power of the Internet and social networking technologies, we can help dismantle those barriers. It’s an opportunity to unite the industry further.”

NABC believes that Collision Hub will display and reinforce the association’s commitment to being open to the entire industry.

“We’ve always been about transparency,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “Collision Hub helps us make good on our goal by extending our industry reach – more folks will gain exposure to what we do. It goes both ways, as well: We’ll get direct feedback in live time from more people than ever. It’s a great chance to refine our focus on the needs of the industry.”

In the days following the broadcast, NABC says it will review and evaluate the experience and decide how it wants to go forward.
