The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced it will be hosting an open board meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 2-5 p.m. in the Tapestry room at the Hilton Palm Springs in Palm Springs, Calif.
SCRS is inviting industry members to the meeting to learn about the current state of the association and industry and receive updates on programs and initiatives the association has been working on for the collision repair industry.
“This meeting is an opportunity not just for us to share, but for us to hear from our members,” said Bruce Halcro, chairman of SCRS. “We use these in-person events as a way to keep our finger on the pulse and make sure we are working on the things that matter to the people we are responsible to represent.”
Attendees are not required to be a member of SCRS to participate. There is no cost, and pre-registration is not required. The meeting will include updates on member programs such as the SCRS healthcare solution launched just prior to the SEMA Show and continued discussion on the blend study released during the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) in November.
The board meeting will also include presentations from SCRS staff and committees, outlining current and future work initiatives. Also, the SCRS Education Committee will deliver their highly anticipated annual presentation, “Kool Tools From the SEMA Show and Beyond.”
SCRS invites those whose lives were positively affected by industry friend and board member John Mosley to join them in honoring his legacy immediately following the open meeting. John passed away on Dec. 21.
“We are asking you to join us in telling your favorite memories,” said Aaron Schulenburg, executive director of SCRS. “John was a one-of-a-kind human being, and we want to pay tribute in a personal way. In seeing the overflow of love the last several days, I believe we all have some amazing stories to tell that capture who he was and what he meant to us all.”
