Is a Rebalancing Rebellion Brewing?

Responses to Catherine Howard's piece explaining why NAGS should not go ahead with its rebalancing on February 28 continue to come in. Is a rebellion brewing?

Shop owners are questioning whether the NAGS list price is still relevant to the industry and asking why they should not be setting their own individual prices for the glass and the labor done on replacements.

Will all of this come to a head at the Independent Glass Association's Independents' Days National Convention & Spring Glass Show™ in Orlando February 24-26?

On the agenda are a number of seminars centering on these issues, including a session with Marc Anderson, IGA executive director, and Bud Oliver, director of operations for NAGS titled: Rebalancing Starts Monday, Now What?

Another session, titled Alternative Pricing Models for the Auto Glass Industry, will feature Dave Leach of the Chicago Auto Glass Group (CAGG) which has developed its own method of determining prices for glass.

How about real time solutions for the auto glass industry's problems? That's the title of another session which will include representatives of Neon, a company that has developed a method for billing insurance companies direct. (And also the subject of a profile in the January/February issue of AGRR® magazine.)
