The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) held several committee meetings in March in Irvine, Calif. Among these were the AGSC ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS™ Standard Committee, Marketing Committee and Education-Credentialing Committee. All committees are scheduled to meet again during Auto Glass Week™ this fall.
The Education-Credentialing Committee, chaired by Jeff Olive of Glasspro Inc., currently is working to develop new questions for the technician certification exams. A number of questions have been submitted and each committee member was asked to submit ten more questions each by August 1. Committee members were asked to develop questions specific to those areas in which they have expertise as well as to develop questions relating to the AGRSS™ Standard and the validation audit.
The Marketing Committee meeting was led by Debra Levy, president of the AGSC, who introduced Peter Brown of Tiny & Sons Auto Glass as its new chair. As chair, he said he hopes to see AGSC become even more recognizable, assist members in marketing themselves and to increase the number of AGSC Registered Member Companies.
Additionally, the Marketing Committee is leading the efforts for this year’s Member Meeting, to be held on September 29 at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno, Nev., from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., before Auto Glass Week™ gets underway. Mike Schenian of City Auto Glass is chairing a subcommittee for the meeting.
The committee also is working to develop a brochure for members to use to market to consumers and insurers with the ability for AGSC Registered Member Companies to add their own logos and pictures. The Marketing Committee also is finalizing a CSR script for AGSC Registered Member Companies, which will be available on the AGSC website. Additionally, the group is exploring the possibility of providing training for CSRs in the future.
The AGRSS™ Standard Committee, chaired by Bob Beranek of Automotive Glass Consultants, discussed proposed revisions to the Standard related to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Beranek told the committee that the revisions need to be addressed quickly. (Click here for related story.)
