"SCRS is the most giving group of people with whom I
have ever worked," said outgoing chairman Barry Dorn (Virginia).
"They have always been there to help me, but never more so than in the
last two years – which was an eventful and exciting term. I’m honored and
humbled that, in my time as chairman, SCRS has strengthened its position to
accomplish what is necessary for our members. Our growth and strength reflects
the character and focus of our members. The outlook is bright."

Dorn will continue on in the capacity of immediate past
chairman, while Aaron Clark (Indiana) takes over the duties of chairman. Clark
anticipates playing a continued role in helping generate positive changes for
the industry.


"It is a distinct honor for me to serve SCRS as its
chairman," Clark stated during the open board meeting following the annual
election. "I’m surrounded by a tremendous board, and we’re committed to
continuing to accomplish the goals we’ve set as an organization. I look forward
to serving and maintaining the momentum the association has developed in recent

Incumbents Ron Reichen (Oregon) and Andy Dingman
(Nebraska) are returning to serve another term on the SCRS board of directors,
both stepping up to new roles on the executive committee. Reichen moves from
secretary to vice chairman, while Dingman moves from treasurer to secretary.
Rounding out the executive positions are: Luis Alonso (California), treasurer,
and Stephen Regan (Massachusetts), director at large.


The balance of SCRS’s board includes national directors
Rodes Brown (Virginia), Joe Skurka (Michigan), Bruce Halcro (Montana), Paul Val
(Arizona), and newly elected Dusty Womble (Texas) and Brett Bailey (Missouri).

Womble and Bailey are both new additions to a short list
of second-generation SCRS board members. Dusty is the son of Rex Womble, who
played an integral part in the development of SCRS when it first emerged as
part of the industry’s national scene, serving as chairman from 1987 to 1988.
Brett is the son of past executive committee member Dan Bailey and nephew of
Bill Bailey, who served as chairman of SCRS from 1997 to 1998.


"Our shop does business not more than 500 yards from
where SCRS first came together – I guess you could say the Society is in my
blood," said Bailey. "Growing up, I saw my dad and my uncle
consistently do the right thing by the collision repair industry through SCRS,
and I’m greatly moved to be in a place where I can carry on their good work.
I’m grateful to my peers who are giving me this opportunity, and I’ll do my
best to live up to the principles my dad and uncle taught me."


Dusty Womble shares similar sentiments. "My dad was
with SCRS at the beginning, and the legacy of SCRS is prominent in my family’s
history," he said. "He knew SCRS was a necessity for the betterment
of the industry. He taught me that if there’s something wrong with a system,
you need to address it, bring the issues to light and change the system for the
better. SCRS continues to be a catalyst for that kind of positive change,
perhaps now more than ever."

The open board meeting in New Jersey completed the terms
of service for Toby Chess (California) and Dale Matsumoto (Hawaii).

"Serving as a national director for SCRS was a
tremendous experience that I will never forget," said Matsumoto.
"I’ve learned much from being a part of this organization, but the
highlight of my service is the incredible people I served with on the board.
Collectively, they’re one of the most passionate groups of industry leaders
I’ve ever met. I’m sure the new members will reinforce the focus of their
seasoned counterparts and strengthen the future of SCRS and the industry."
