IAR 2017 Summer Outing Updates Over 100 Recyclers on Industry Trends

Written by


Saturday evening was filled with networking opportunities during IAR's BBQ dinner and Scholarship Auction which preceded dancing and revelry with a live band. Schauls believes, "The event was enhanced, for the third year, by honoring one of our association founders. This year Bruce Chase, Sun Line, Inc., Cedar Rapids and Chase Auto Parts, Waterloo, was the honoree. Bruce regaled the crowd with a speech that can only be described as an auto recycling stand-up routine!  Bruce drove home the point that auto recycling has changed every year, year over year, and so the pace of keeping up with this industry is mind boggling and compares only to the pace of the changes seen in automotive technology itself. As Lloyd Van Horn, the 2016 honoree, noted ‘No one envies the auto recycler in this era!’”


IAR hosts its Annual Summer Outing to provide association members and other nearby automotive recyclers with educational and networking opportunities. Schauls explains, "Local events are important for many members who do not attend national conventions or training opportunities. Plus, nothing beats the networking and sharing of wisdom than a face-to-face meeting of peers.”
