The Auto Glass Safety Council™’s (AGSC) committees and board of directors are undertaking a number of efforts this year and have lots in store for AGSC Registered Member Companies.
The Education Committee continued its work updating the AGSC technician certification program and concentrated on the development of new exam materials and a new study guide.
The Marketing Committee is in the process of releasing a new AGSC consumer video, as well as its first annual member directory. The directory includes a list of all AGSC Registered Member Companies (alphabetically and by state/city/zip code); a list of Associate Members; list of Registered Training Programs; a brief history of the AGSC and its mission; listing of officers and board of directors; the AGSC’s code of ethics; and a copy of the ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS 003-2015 Standard.
The board of directors recently voted to create a category of membership specifically for insurers. The membership category, “Automotive Casualty Insurance Companies,” was designed for insurers that wish to show their support for the important area of proper windshield installations.
The AGSC AGRSS™ Standards Committee is tackling a Standards update that focuses on Automated Driver Assist Systems (ADAS). It has formed a subcommittee to study the topic.
“Every car manufacturer is different and there are even differences in how to handle different models,” said AGSC Standards chair Bob Beranek of Auto Glass University in Sun Prairie, Wis. “It’s a technology our Standard will have to deal with.”
The committee plans to vote on the subcommittee’s recommendations when they meet in San Antonio in October.
