The National Auto Body Council (NABC) is now accepting nominations for seven open board seats to be elected at its upcoming annual meeting at the SEMA Show this fall in Las Vegas.
Deadline for third-party nominations or self-nominations is Friday, September 6. To be eligible, nominees must be designated representatives of current NABC member companies. Board members are elected for three-year terms.
“As a result of strong active board leadership, our membership has grown significantly over the past few years as more and more companies experience the value and benefits of participating in NABC initiatives,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “We welcome nominations from all segments of the collision industry for leaders who are willing to invest the time and effort to help guide the organization in our ongoing mission to identify, develop and implement community-based initiatives that promote a positive image of our industry.”
NABC initiatives include the successful and popular Recycled Rides program. Almost 800 vehicles have been donated to deserving individuals and nonprofit organizations since the program’s inception in 2007. Other NABC community service programs include First Responder Emergency Extrication (FREE), the Distracted Driving initiative and support for disabled veterans through Operation Comfort’s AutoMotivation program.
NABC also annually recognizes individuals or organizations who demonstrate excellence or selfless service to others through its Award of Distinction and Body Shop Image Award.

These board members include: Brandon Devis, Martin Senour Paints – Sherwin Williams Automotive Finishes; Craig Camacho, Keenan Auto Body; Dave Henderson, See Progress; Bill Mayer, Insurance Auto Auctions; David Merrell, PartsTrader; Ron Reichen, Precision Body and Paint, Inc.; and Renee Ricciotti, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division.
