- Clint Marlow of Allstate will present the latest from the Repairer-Insurer Relations Panel at 8:30 a.m.
- The Advanced Technologies Committee presentation at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, by Jack Rozint of Mitchell and Fred Iantorno of CIECA.

- Stephen Regan of the Governmental Committee will examine telematics and data privacy at 10:20 a.m.
- CIC will welcome Painters Supply and Equipment’s Guy Bargnes, the new chairman, at 11:20 a.m. Nov. 1.

Appearing with Capital One small-business credit card head Buck Stinson, Foose will discuss growing a small business during “A Business Fueled by Passion – Talking Shop with Chip Foose” in the North Hall Upper Level, Room N258.
