AGSC Welcomes Your Participation on Committees
AGSC has several committees, including two Standards Committees, that can always use more volunteers.

If you would like to become more actively involved with the Auto Glass Safety Council or share great ideas for promoting AGSC and its member programs, including the AGSC Registered Member Company program, why not consider serving on one of the AGSC committees?

If you want to have a part in the development and maintenance of the ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS Standard (replacement of auto glass) or the AGSC/NWRD/ROLAGS 002 Standard (repair), why not consider joining the AGSC AGRSS Standards Committee or the AGSC ROLAGS 2 Standards Committee? Individuals interested in participating on these committees are encouraged to apply.

For a list of all of the AGSC committees and what they do, visit https://agsc.org/committees/. To learn how you can participate on a committee, contact Kathy Bimber at kbimber@agsc.org.

We Can Always Use Your Pictures
AGSC is looking for photos of how AGSC Registered Member Companies market their AGSC Registration to their customers.

We would love to receive pictures of your technicians with their technician accreditation and AGSC Registered Member Company patches on their uniforms, shirts or aprons. Pictures showing the AGSC Registered Member Company window clings on your shop or vehicle windows or the AGSC Registered Member Company counter signs, brochures or registration certificate in your lobby are also greatly appreciated. Who knows? You just may end up on the cover of the next AGSC Member Directory sent to insurers who request it.

Photos that are in 300 dpi and as large as possible are best, but all are welcome.

Please submit your pictures by email to Kathy Bimber at kbimber@agsc.org with your contact information.
