According to AASP-MO Executive Director Ron Reiling, “The meeting was held as part of our continuing education on alignments and ADAS safety systems, and it went very well. All enjoyed the presentation by Chip, Dave Rainey and Bret Spiller of Hunter Engineering. The 27 people in attendance were treated to a BBQ dinner, a classroom presentation and a hands-on demonstration.
“Chip did a great job of presenting the benefits of doing in-house alignments and performing alignment analysis prior to repairs. ADAS safety calibrations are here to stay, and Chip covered the importance of the vehicles’ mechanical alignment being correct prior to recalibrating. For body shops, Chip also covered what insurers will pay for that you may not be requesting.”
Reiling believes that association meetings and educational opportunities are important for the group’s membership because “they are simply the easiest and most productive way to stay up-to-date with the world’s fastest-changing industry and to network with like-minded professionals.”
