Newly Assembled NABC Pride Committee Spearheads Search for 2010 Nominations

The search for nominees for the 15th annual National Auto Body Council (NABC) Pride Awards is continuing this year with the newly formed Pride committee.

The Pride Awards recognize those in the collision repair industry who donate their time, energy and financial resources to worthy causes outside the industry. The purpose of the Pride committee is to extend Pride’s outreach and ensure that worthy nominees are identified and brought to the attention of the industry. Each committee member has been assigned a specific area of industry focus, adding a dimension of scope to the nominating process.

“This year, we felt an expansion of the committee to cover all industry segments would contribute to improving the overall industry response,” said Pride Co-Chair Bob Keith. “With this additional participation, each committee member can reach out to segments with which he or she is most familiar and make a personal request for nominations.”

The 2010 Pride committee is composed of the following collision professionals:

• Pride Co-Chair Janet Chaney, Cave Creek Consulting

• Pride Co-Chair Bob Keith, CARSTAR

• Insurance – Chris Andreoli, Progressive Insurance

• Independent Repairers – John Arnold, Arnold’s Body Shop

• Paint Resellers – Guy Bargnes, Bargnes and Associates

• Multiple Shop Owners – Stacy Bartnik, CARSTAR

• Paint Manufacturers – Bruce Cooley, DuPont

• Paint Manufacturers – Rodes Brown, Sherwin-Williams

• Independent Repairers – Charles Dillard, Precision Body and Paint

• CIECA Members – Fred Iantorno, CIECA

• CSI Complete Participants – David Merrell, CSI Complete

• Automotive Recyclers, Mary Lou Silveira, Schnitzer Steel

“Facilitating the search for nominees with a committee helps ensure a full roster of deserving individuals to celebrate,” said Pride Co-Chair Janet Chaney. “The committee is excited and enthusiastic and attending to the task at hand. It’s heartening and representative of what the National Auto Body Council is all about.”
