SCRS Announces More Details on Repairer Driven Education at SEMA Show

Registration for SEMA show, SCRS seminars now open.

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has announced additional details regarding the upcoming educational opportunities being featured at the 2010 SEMA Show. The educational track, Repairer Driven Education (RDE), will feature over 21 seminar offerings, many of which are being offered for the first time during RDE, and all of which specifically focus on issues and information that are relevant to collision repair professionals operating in today’s marketplace.

The RDE track, held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 4 and 5, will be launched with an opening seminar by Charles Coonradt, author of “The Game of Work, Managing the Obvious and The Better People Leader.” For the past 25 years, Coonradt’s “Game of Work” concepts have enriched the lives and businesses of thousands of collision repairers across the country, and RDE attendees will have the chance to hear from the author himself. Coonradt will teach repairers how they can implement his concepts so that they and their employees can learn to enjoy work as much as play. SCRS says this will be the final speaking engagement of  Coonradt’s career.

The two-day RDE program will feature speakers Mike Anderson, Toby Chess, Erica Eversman J.D., John Sweigart, Patrick McGuire Esq., Steven Feltovich, Tim Ronak, Greg Horn and many more.

Seminar topics will include: how to legally and practically address steering, transitioning your business to a lean model, understanding and performing OEM recommended repairs, finding out how “quirky” customers can be your most valuable resources, how a lack of understanding of wage and hour compliance could devastate your business, how to drive business to your door through social networking media, and more.

A complete list of seminars included can be found here.
“One of the most attractive benefits we see for SCRS’ affiliation with the SEMA Show is the opportunity for growth and enhancement that it presents to the average repair facility,” said Barry Dorn, SCRS Chairman and repair facility owner. “In today’s market, it is increasingly more difficult for repairers to operate with diminishing margins and increased pressure. As a business owner, I am really excited about exploring what other revenue sources may exist that I can plug in to my existing business. I have the building and I have the staff – if there is another business opportunity that caters to my customer base and only requires investment in some inventory and additional training, I want to know more about it. The SEMA Show is certainly the perfect venue to learn more and such a logical place for our industry to meet.”

Online SEMA attendee registration is now open. Attendees can register for both their SEMA Show entrance and SCRS RDE seminars.
