The Carolinas Collision Association (CCA) will host its Second Annual Carolinas Educational Collision Conference (CECC), April 30 through May 2 at the Gateway Conference Center in Richburg, SC.
“We have an amazing conference planned this year that will help elevate shops to the next level and bring more awareness to your businesses,” said CCA Executive Director Josh Kent.
“Since the association has started, our member shops have become stronger, and their focus has been amazing,” Kent said. “Now, we are bringing the industry’s best speakers to collision repair professionals in our market so they can become their very best.”
CECC 2020 will commence April 30 with a North and South Carolina High School/College Transportation Career Fair, hosted by CCA in partnership with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF.)
CCA anticipates up to 1,000 students will be in attendance.
The career fair will include student interviews and a student skills challenge with prizes.
