- Toby Chess of the Technical Committee and the SCRS Education Committee will tell you “Everything you didn’t know about Dedicated Bench setup,” according to CIC, at 9:50 a.m.
- I-CAR’s John Van Alstyne will follow him at 11 a.m. Nov. 2 with an update on the educational organization’s efforts on what it describes as a “Technical Tsunami” coming from OEMs.
- CIC will host industry awards at 8 a.m. Nov. 2. Last year, the ceremony also saw CARSTAR Mundelein co-owner Jeanne Silver named to the collision industry’s Hall of Eagles, the first hall of fame inductee since 2012.
Repairer Driven Education Day 2 runs from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. today. Find out more about that lineup here.
