The Auto Glass Safety Council and its National Windshield Repair Division conducted a series of Board, committee and member meetings at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Tex. immediately before Auto Glass Week.
The day began with meetings of the AGSC Education Committee and the AGSC/NWRD ROLAGS 2 Standards Committee and concluded with a reception for all AGSC members. Other meetings held included AGSC Board, Marketing Committee, AGRSS Standards Committee, ADAS Committee, Public Affairs Committee and NWRD Executive Committee. Additionally, an AGSC Member Meeting was held that included a presentation on legislative initiatives, social media, and marketing opportunities.
“We appreciated the time, effort and expense undertaken by such a broad range of AGSC members to come to San Antonio a day early and participate in a wide range of important meetings,” said AGSC president Mike Schenian. “Aside from the important business conducted, I especially appreciated the opportunity to spend time with so many of my colleagues that I have barely seen, or not seen at all, since the pandemic began two and a half years ago,” added Schenian.
Most of the committees worked to further the agendas they had set for the year, such as the AGRSS Standards Committee concluding its work on the 2022 revision of the AGRSS Standard and the ROLAGS 2 Standards Committee continuing to develop a revised ROLAGS standard. The Marketing Committee continued implementing its brochure revision and social media expansion and the Public Affairs Committee did strategic planning for next year. The ADAS Committee continued to discuss how the ADAS technological changes are affecting the industry and individual businesses and how the AGSC should continue to address change post-AGRSS Standard revision. The committee is working to develop new formats for providing correct information about ADAS calibrations for AGSC members and the consumers and insurance agents with whom they work.
Additionally, an inaugural Career Day sponsored by AGSC was attended by several local vocational and high school students. The students learned about the auto glass replacement, repair, and window film industries. The highlight of Career Day occurred when Auto Glass Week Keynote Speaker Mike Rowe took time to meet with the students.
