AGRSS® Council Inc. to Become Auto Glass Safety Council
September 15, 2011

The Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS®) Council Inc. announced today that the group will undergo a name change. Effective January 1, 2012, the not-for-profit group will be known as the Auto Glass Safety Council.

“We’re really excited about the name change,” says AGRSS Council president Debra Levy. “We believe it more accurately reflects our true mission—auto glass safety in every respect.”

“Developing standards is one aspect of the organization,” she adds, “but it is so much more, including an auditing and validating function, along with an auto glass technician certification and educational programs.”

In a statement from AGRSS, Levy says the AGRSS Board of Directors conducted a number of consumer and insurance focus groups before voting to change its name and “the change to the Auto Glass Safety Council name was clearly the right choice.”

The name change was announced at Auto Glass Week™ in Memphis, Tenn., which runs through Saturday, September 17. The event is being held at the Memphis Cook Convention Center and Memphis Marriott Downtown.
