SCRS April meetings and election to take place in Oklahoma City

A Repairer Roundtable on April 13 will present a focused dialog addressing issues that are impacting collision repairers the most today

Mechanicsville, Va.—On Wednesday, April 13, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will hold a Repairer Roundtable from 9 – 11:30 a.m., an open board meeting from 2 – 5 p.m. and members are invited to take part in the annual election taking place from 5:15 – 6:00 p.m. 

All three events will take place at the Sheraton Oklahoma City Downtown (Reservations: https://www.marriott.com/events/start.mi?id=1643912003114&key=GRP).

The last in-person Repairer Roundtable was held in April 2019, focused on workforce development and solutions to skilled labor challenges. In this upcoming Repairer Roundtable, the SCRS Board of Directors will present a focused dialog addressing the issues that are impacting collision repairers the most at this moment in time. SCRS intends to use the forum to both collect response and input from those in-person, but also to collect and address challenges that are shared with us from repairers across the industry.

Following the Repairer Rountable, the SCRS board will hold an open board meeting for everyone wishing to learn more about the association’s ongoing activities. The meeting will include updates from SCRS staff and special presentations from SCRS committees, including the Education Committee presentation on Kool Tools which was postponed from the previous meeting.

The open meeting will be 2 – 5 p.m. Following the open meeting, SCRS will invite members back into the room to participate in the annual election for open seats on the board of directors. The election will begin at 5:15 p.m., and ballot collection will close promptly at 6 p.m. In accordance with SCRS bylaws, the nomination process closed on Feb. 26, and there will be no nominations from the floor.

This election will fill four open board seats, and candidates include:

• Incumbents: Rob Grieve Nylund Collision (Colo.); Dave Gruskos Reliable Automotive Equipment (N.J.).

• New Nominees: Kris Burton Rosslyn Auto Body (Va); Josh McFarlin AirPro Diagnostics (Fla.); Erin Solis Certified Collision Group (Colo.).

The Repairer Roundtable will feature a panel consisting of three collision repair facility operators, and three association representatives:

• Andy Tylka, Owner at Tag Auto Group (Ind.)

• Bruce Halcro, Owner at Capital Collision Center (Mont.)

• Kye Yeung, President at European Motor Car Works (Calif.)

• Kyle Bradshaw, President of the Carolina’s Collision Association (CCA)

• Jill Tuggle, Executive Director of the Auto Body Association of Texas (ABAT)

• Jordan Hendler, Executive Director of the Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association (WMABA).

Attendees do not have to be a member to participate in the Repairer Roundtable, and the event is open to all who are in Oklahoma City for the week of industry events. There is no fee to attend, but SCRS asks guests who intend to join to RSVP so that SCRS can set the room appropriately to accommodate for social distancing during the meeting. The election is open to current, designated voting representatives of SCRS member businesses.
