AASP of Illinois (AASPI) held its 2020 Annual Meeting on Feb. 22 at the Diplomat West in Elmhurst, IL, featuring Kristen Felder, CEO of Collision Hub.
“Our annual meeting helps bring industry participants together for practical advice on tools and lessons in the industry, as well as build momentum for future statewide and regional initiatives and meetings," said AASPI Executive Director Brian Wojcicki.
During her presentation, Felder discussed the importance of documentation and shared tips on negotiation, offering a jam-packed day of practical advice and lessons on file documentation and insurance payment negotiations.
Wojcicki said throughout the day, attendees actively engaged Felder with questions and shared lessons from their own experience, and since the event, have already followed up with interest in more material from Collision Hub as well as future regional association-sponsored education events.
Wojcicki believes association-sponsored events and educational opportunities are vital because “they bring association members, industry service providers, and leaders in the industry together, which helps the association keep a pulse on what is important to its members while also providing a return on investment for their support.”
AASPI’s Annual Meeting also included an OEM repair procedure legislation update, specifically as it pertains to passage of AASPI’s legislation seeking to mandate all collision repair estimates be prepared based on OEM repair procedures, as well as the association’s related work with the state associations for auto manufacturers and dealers.
“We are weeks away from some of the first legislative deadlines regarding the association's OEM procedure legislation and are hopeful for success this year as we look to partner with the state associations for auto manufacturers and dealers,” Wojcicki said.
