Nebraska Autobody Association is Newest SCRS Affiliate Association

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has announced that the Nebraska Autobody Association (NABA), a statewide trade association promoting excellence in the art and science of collision repair, has enrolled as its newest affiliate association.
The NABA, which is comprised of approximately 350 body shops, auto body suppliers, auto body educational institutions and individual repairers, is devoted to promoting industry professionalism and establishing goodwill with the motoring public. The association is also committed to a strong code of business ethics for its members, and believes that providing a united front is important when addressing today’s challenging issues.
"SCRS has a history of being a driving force behind joint industry efforts, which are more important than ever and vital to the survival of our profession," said NABA Chairman Norbert Zaenglein. "More importantly, they are not afraid to speak out, in very plain language and in no uncertain terms, about the nature and source of the problems we’re currently facing. That means a lot to our organization, reflected in the fact that our board voted unanimously for affiliation." 
 "Some of the more disturbing trends currently playing out in the market make it imperative that repairers cooperate with each other and work toward their mutual interests," said SCRS Chairman Gary Wano, Jr. "The effort starts with active participation at the affiliate level, which creates a strong regional foundation for the industry. The Nebraska Autobody Association has been outstanding in this area, exposing their members to the issues, working with state legislators and keeping the big picture in mind. We welcome them aboard as a living example that ‘Working Together Is the Most Important Work We Do’."
Through its direct members and 36 affiliate associations, SCRS is comprised of 6,000 collision repair businesses and 58,500 specialized professionals who work with consumers and insurance companies to repair collision-damaged vehicles.
