Looking forward to the next CIC in April in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the committee will also revisit a long-time project on the work formerly known as the "Minimum Recommended Requirements for a 'Class A' Collision Repair Facility", now drafted and viewable online as "Collision Industry Conference Collision Repair Provider Definition".
"The committee has put a lot of work and conference time into the discussions that have led it to this point," commented Evans. "We hope the document draft, put forth by the committee, will be worthy of discussion and possible resolution to whether or not CIC will preserve this work product for the benefit of the industry."
This draft work product will be discussed and voted on by the participants present at the April 2017 meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Those who would like more information about the upcoming meeting can go to www.ciclink.com to view the entire schedule. The agenda for the meeting will be posted within two weeks prior for exact times.
The Collision Industry Conference (CIC) is a forum made up of participants from all industry segments for the expressed purpose of discussing and exploring the issues that occur among them, to fulfill the mission of "A collision industry in which all segments work together to enable a complete, safe, and quality repair". Through discussion and research during meetings and extensive interim committee work, CIC attempts to form consensus on various issues, aware that all such findings are nonbinding and voluntarily accepted.
