Potential hot topics include:

John Bosin of the Parts and Materials Committee will host a panel at 11 a.m. with electronic parts procurement vendors, a topic CIC’s been trying to tackle given potential inefficiencies in the “call and fax” method.

At 2:30 p.m., the hot topic of redefining a “Class A” shop will likely return as Ron Guilliams and Chris Evans of the Definitions Committee discuss “Classifying Auto Body Shop competencies in a sensible way,” according to the agenda.Take the CIC’s survey ahead of the talk and read more coverage with our link here.

At 3:30 p.m., another earlier CIC hot topic might be raised — the ominous statistics related to industrywide training and education (see some data from I-CAR here) as Gene Lopez and Bob Keith of the Education and Training Committee take the stage.
