SCRS to Hold Repairer Roundtable in Atlanta
March 17, 2015—On April 8, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will hold a Repairer Roundtable gathering from 8:30-11 a.m. in Atlanta, prior to the start of the Collision Industry Conference meetings at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia.
The morning meeting will feature a panel and live audience discussion. The topic will focus on safety and preventative measures collision repairers should take in shops. From cleanliness habits, to understanding metallurgical reactions different materials demonstrate to things such as heat, pulling, contamination or other environmental factors.
A group of panelists will discuss a variety of recommendations for preparation and preventative measures every shop should be looking at, whether they are diving into OEM aluminum certifications or working on ultra-high strength steels.
The panel will feature industry veterans Steve Marks, industry technical support manager at the I-CAR Tech Center; Ken Boylan, global training manager for Chief Automotive Technologies; and Dave Gruskos, president of Reliable Automotive Equipment.
Audience members are encouraged to come prepared to pose questions. The event is open to all industry members, the SCRS said in its release.
There is no fee to attend any of the SCRS events. Pre-registration is mandatory.
