The National Auto Body Council (NABC) board met on Jan. 15 in Palm Springs, Calif., to discuss the organization’s strategic plan and portfolio of projects, and elect executive officers.
The 2008 executive officers are President Russell Thrall III, CollisionWeek/I-CAR Education Foundation; Vice President George Avery, State Farm Insurance Company; Secretary Janet Chaney, Cave Creek Business Development; Treasurer Karen Fierst, KerenOr Consultants; Director-at-Large Bob Keith, CARSTAR, Inc.; and Chairman of the Board Guy Bargnes, BASF Corporation.
Robyn Frankel of Frankel Public Relations, NABC’s media specialist, is continuing to implement the organization’s first formal public relations effort, which will reach out directly to the consumer using a mixture of media-based approaches.
NABC’s goal for this year’s Recycled Rides program, through which industry members refurbish vehicles for donation to families in need, is to donate 100 vehicles during the holiday season. A Web site dedicated to the program is under development.
