North Dakota Auto Body Association Affiliates with the SCRS

The North Dakota Auto Body Association (NDABA), founded in the fall of 1983, announced its affiliation with the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) on April 14.

In its formative stages, the NDABA was established to address industry issues and pave the road ahead for member businesses.

"We have a really long and proud history in North Dakota logging almost as many years on the timeline as SCRS does," shared NDABA President Scott Heintzman of Fargo, North Dakota. "We've seen a lot of trends come into the industry and evolve, and as business owners ourselves it is critical to align ourselves with the strongest resources to help both our members and their consumers."

"We've seen some really spectacular work come out of the programs SCRS has put together, specifically their focus in delivering information through their new Repairer Driven News site, and the education programs they are putting together with the Repairer Driven Education series held at the SEMA Show. These are the types of things that our organization would like to tap into and bring to a local level to our own members."

"The interest and support from such tenured and respected state associations like NDABA really affords SCRS with added opportunity to serve our mission to educate, inform and represent the industry," added SCRS Chairman Ron Reichen. "It is a great validation for us when the programs we develop to better serve the industry generate and attract new interest. The more support we receive - whether from the network of affiliate associations or directly from individual shops - the more we can do toward the benefit of those we represent. Just based on the objectives of both of our groups, the whole board is excited about the addition of the NDABA and look forward to what comes next!"
