Society of Collision Repair Specialists Puts Out Call for New Members

Association seeking additional members to be part of its mission to educate, inform and represent the industry.

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced it is seeking additional members to join its association and be part of its mission to educate, inform and represent the industry.

Membership dues are $300 per year, and SCRS says those annual dues fund its efforts to better the industry. There is also the choice of becoming a Platinum Member at $1,000 per year.

“We believe there isn’t a more dedicated or recognized advocate for collision repairers, and the programs we’ve developed speak to our mission,” said SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg.

Schulenburg pointed out some of SCRS’ accomplishments:

  • The building of a grassroots network of communication connecting more than 45 state, regional, national and international trade associations that communicate regularly about markets trends, conditions and potential solutions or pitfalls to addressing the issues that matter to collision repairers.
  • The Repairer Driven Education series and OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit held at the SEMA Show, which provide tangible solutions to businesses looking for guidance and information on ways to improve their position in spite of market challenges.
  • Involvement in the creation and ongoing oversight of the Database Enhancement Gateway, a free, easy-to-use solution for the industry to address errors, inaccuracies and omissions in the estimating systems and databases.
  • The creation of a free Guide to Complete Repair Planning that has influenced numerous estimating training courses, estimate auditing tools and long expansion lists, and served as a trusted resource for collision repairers looking to develop, refine and maintain their estimating processes.
  • The creation of value-added benefit programs that reduce expenses and enhance the successful operation of members’ businesses, such as SCRS’ merchant services program through FirstData, which  has helped members save thousands of dollars annually in their processing fees. New participants receive a $200 credit that can cover the majority of their annual SCRS dues.
  • The creation of Repairer Driven News, a free news and information source dedicated to keeping members connected to the information that matters most to their business.
