AGSC, NWRD Committee Meetings Wrap Up in Orlando

The series of Winter Meetings dedicated to auto glass safety continued on January 24, as the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) and its National Windshield Repair Division (NWRD) continued to meet in Orlando, Florida.

Industry members devoted their time to the development of new programs such as the AGSC Customer Service Rep and AGSC Glass Calibration certification programs now being developed. Both the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) and the Repair of Laminated Auto Glass (ROLAGS) standards committees also met.

“I think that it was great that all the industry experts could gather, and we all seem to have the same drive for education, training and certification,” AGSC director of safety and training Jeff Olive said. “All of our members are very enthusiastic about these meetings and look forward to making our standards perfect and keeping our education and training top of mind and available to all technicians that want to take that training.”

From left to right, Mike Schenian, Peter Brown, Barry Roberts and Jon Laski spent time working on a brainstorming assignment in breakout groups during the ADAS Committee meeting.

The ADAS and AGRSS Standards Committee meetings were particularly packed. The ADAS committee meeting included a breakout group brainstorming session to develop questions for future certifications.

“I think it was incredibly productive and it got different groups of people talking together that probably wouldn’t have had time to talk,” said Jacques Navant, who chairs the ADAS Committee.

“In the AGRSS committee meeting, we saw everybody that’s in the industry share ideas and thoughts and just connecting, even though they were competitors,” said AGSC vice president Peter Brown of Tiny & Sons Auto Glass.

The day of meetings concluded with the AGSC Board of Directors meeting.
