NCACAR Plans to Return from Summer Break

Written by

With summer quickly coming to an end, the North Carolina Association of Collision and Autobody Repair (NCACAR) is gearing up to resume its quarterly meetings, training seminars and efforts to improve the collision repair industry in its state.


According to NCACAR Director of Membership Josh Kent, “We have accomplished quite a lot over the summer in regards to getting all of the basics out of the way. We have made pamphlets regarding what we are all about, and our new website has been released on NCACAR.com, to which we are still adding content. We’re also working with local community colleges to help with apprenticeship and scholarship programs in addition to working on discount programs and many other items that will benefit our members’ businesses.”


NCACAR will hold its next meeting on Thursday, Sept. 21 at the Burlington Shrine Club in Burlington, NC. Sponsored by Quality Collision Services and PPG, the meeting will include presentations by Ed Kizenberger, Executive Director of LIABRA; Keith Manich, Director of Collision Services for the Automotive Training Institute; and NCACAR President Brian Davies. Kizenberger wil discuss legislative issues, and Manich will present on “Planning for and Executing Successful Collision Repair Negotiations.” Davies will provide association updates on the new website and the group’s apprenticeship program.


Dinner will be provided, and NCACAR will hold a raffle during the meeting. Kent promises “great speakers with lots of good information.” Those interested in attending should RSVP by Sept. 17 at Josh.Kent@Elite-Salesgroup.com or 704-998-8553.


Kent shared, “We have HUGE plans this year for expansion, legislative issues and education. We will also be starting an association in SC very soon, and we need all the help we can get. Please join us in bringing change to this ever-evolving industry!”
