Fransway to Speak at Annual AGRSS Conference in Las Vegas

Jon Fransway, whose sister Jeanne was killed in 1999 after an accident in which the windshield of the car she was driving had been replaced improperly, will speak at this year's annual Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS) Conference in Las Vegas. The conference will be held October 31-November 1.

Fransway told glassBYTEs.comô/AGRR magazine he looks forward to the conference and hopes his numerous speeches on behalf of his sister will make a difference in the industry.

"I'm just a consumer with a hope to make it better so it doesn't happen to someone else," he says.

However, he notes, the crowd to which he'll be speaking isn't the one that concerns him most.

"It's not so much the people the people who are a part of [AGRSS], that go to the conventions, it's the people that aren't there—those are the people I'm concerned about," Fransway said.

Fransway says that when State Farm adopted the Standard as part of its glass claims process—it requires "compliance"—it was a great stride for the Council and the industry.

"I don't think people realize how big that is," says Fransway, who himself serves an insurance agent for State Farm in Minneapolis. "We have a large percentage of the auto market."
