Members gathered at the Garage Sports Bar in Lincoln, NE, and at DJ’s Dugout in Omaha, NE, to receive the valuable information.
“I think the event was a great success, said NABA Board Member, James Rodis. “Getting knowledge out to a large number of shops is always a great thing.”
The webcast featured 3M Advanced Application Engineer Shawn Collins and Advanced Application Development Specialist Dennis Keicher who discussed metal bonding, automotive manufacturers’ collision repair information and technical challenges. They also shared go-to resources and talked about emerging trends and planning for the future. Dave Robinette of I-CAR and VECO was also in attendance.
“Attendees loved the information," Rodis said. "When you have guys with as much experience as the presenters have, how could you not listen? I think quarterly or semi-annual events like this would be amazing.”
NABA Board Member Dave Yard added, “I saw some new faces at the Lincoln watch party. A few attendees reached out to me for more information about NABA. NABA is grateful to Christine Neth of Auto Body Supply for helping us get the word out.”
NABA held the watch parties to help members meet with other industry professionals and expand their knowledge.
“Association events are much needed as most shops put their head down and work, but really, they should join a brotherhood of shops and learn it’s not them against the shop down the street,” Rodis said.
