Prior to Olson's presentation, he and Jennifer Jarzembowski from PPG's automotive refinish development team discussed the value of OEM certifications for shops that are already on programs and/or pursuing others. Following Olson’s presentation, Keith Going of I-CAR did a presentation on the changes and exciting times at I-CAR.


"Needless to say, it was an action-packed night," Olson said.


East Bay Chapter President Tiffany Silva has been hosting large meetings throughout the year, and this one was surely no exception.


"Our September meeting was fantastic with more than 80 people in attendance," she said. "Jennifer Jarzembowski from PPG assisted with the presentation, and Keith Going from I-CAR gave a short presentation of the changes coming. The topics presented by Mark Olson were so relevant and the presentation was just perfect. PPG is an awesome vendor that provides so much support for our industry; Rob Hengemihle and his team are so gracious to host a meeting each year for the chapter, and we can't thank them enough. CAA and I believe that this meeting was undoubtedly the best yet!"
