SCRS Repairer Roundtable

On Wednesday, SCRS will be hosting the Repairer Roundtable from 8:30am – 11:00am in the Ryman Studio PQR at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. Free, but RSVP required.
This year, SCRS is excited to welcome the Director of Workforce Development at Tennessee Department of Economic & Community Development, Ann Thompson, and Kenyatta Lovett, Ph.D., Executive Director at Complete Tennessee. Their topic will be about TN-based programs developed to spur more adults and graduating high school students to work toward a degree or certificate in a vocational school or program, with an objective of better meeting market demand for skilled workers. Dan Caldwell, Senior Manager of Learning Pathways for Nissan’s U.S. manufacturing operations will follow with a look into Nissan’s application of these programs to address a shortage of skilled workers, and how the collaboration between the state and industry addressed that need. Finally, attorney and consumer advocate Erica Eversman will speak to her role as Consumer Liaison with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). Eversman will share perspectives from her first NAIC meeting in this capacity and delve into ways in which the collision repair community can better interact with regulatory bodies, to advocate for our consumers and raise awareness of critical issues affecting the marketplace.
