Marketing Vice Chair Sarah Young shared, “The continued conversation and outline of the September 21 Career Fair with CREF was a key topic, touching on the importance down the line of vehicle and collision repair. The group discussed the need for education and general awareness to keep building the future of technicians.”
Shelly Jones, chair for the St. Louis I-CAR Committee, noted, “I thought the meeting went great. John Helterbrand gave the committee insight on how the classes are going. We discussed where we are with our committee goals for the year. There were many that stayed after the main meeting for the sub-committee job fair meeting.
“We are coming down to the wire for those companies that want an ad in our full-color collector item student guide. Every job fair participant receives a copy. Other big news is that this year we have opened up the event to parents of students that attend. This will give parents an idea of the career opportunities in the industry.”
