SCRS Events in Anaheim This August

Prosser, Washington, July 18, 2016  On Tuesday, August 9th, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) will hold an Open Board Meeting from 9:00 - 11:00am in the GOLD KEY III room at the Anaheim Marriott in Anaheim, California. The association invites all industry participants interested in learning more about the association's work to attend. The two hour meeting will include updates from SCRS staff, committees, and guests from the industry.
The SCRS Affiliate Communications Committee will include an update from Ted Stein, President of the local SCRS affiliate association, the California Autobody Association (CAA.) Stein will give a brief overview of state-level initiatives, legislation, and other ongoing activity that impacts the membership.
The agenda will also feature Jake Rodenroth, Dircetor of Client Services for Collision Diagnostic Services; delivering a guest presentation for the SCRS Education Committee, addressing the basics of Zero Point Calibration. Zero Point Calibrations are frequently referenced, yet often not fully understood. The educational program will clarify what the operation is as defined by the automakers, how is it actually performed, and the consequences if it is not performed or performed incorrectly. It will also provide insight into what a repair facility needs from its technicians, including training and tooling perspective, to effectively complete the operation. The presentation will conclude with questions from the audience.
Previous SCRS Education Committee presentation videos can be found on the SCRS YouTube channel
