AGRSS Fundraising Gets Boost with Glass America Donation

The Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) Council has announced that its new fundraising campaign is underway and its first generous donation has been received-from Glass America.

"Glass America, and I personally, are extremely supportive of the goals of AGRSS in pursuing to ensure safe auto glass installations," said David Rohlfing, president of Glass America. "We look forward to a time when AGRSS is fully embraced across the AGR industry, the insurance industry and all customer segments to raise the standards of our industry and to increase the safety of the driving public. I trust other companies will follow suit in supporting these efforts."

The AGRSS fundraising efforts go to support a variety of AGRSS-oriented educational opportunities, including its new consumer awareness program. Details will be unveiled at the second annual AGRSS conference, scheduled for October 28-30, 2006 in Orlando, Fla. For more information about the conference, CLICK HERE.
