WICRA was established in April 2019, and announced to the industry in November with industry advocacy work kicking off in the state capitol immediately following the association’s launch. The focus of the association is to improve the business climate for its members – automotive professionals and businesses throughout the state of Washington.
"WICRA is taking steps to protect the rights of the small businesses we represent, and ultimately the consumers in Washington that they serve," shared WICRA President, Jeff Butler. "WICRA’s reasoning for joining SCRS is simple; SCRS is THE National Collision Repairer’s organization that represents the best in auto repair and education within the industry."
"As every volunteer around the SCRS board table knows, associations are the result of people willing to show up, roll up their sleeves and get to work for the industry," added SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. "We’ve all got a lot of admiration for individuals who go to work not for themselves or their own betterment, but to support the industry around them. We look forward to watching this association grow and to be able to offer support through the peer-to-peer network we’ve established within our Affiliate structure."
