The event will be held Wednesday, March 11 from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Babcox Media, 3550 Embassy Parkway, Fairlawn, Ohio (15 minutes south of Cleveland and north of Akron). The event is free for WIN members and $10 for non-members. All proceeds go to the WIN Scholarship Fund. Refreshments will be served.

In 2016, I-CAR estimated that at least 56,000 body shop jobs were unfilled at the nation’s 34,000 collision repair facilities. At this event, BodyShop Business will present results from an in-depth, nationwide study, sponsored by WIN, that will lend some insight into:

  • Why techs are choosing a collision repair career;
  • What the priorities are when it comes to working in the PBE industry;
  • What the industry’s key strengths and weaknesses are;
  • Why women in collision repair are becoming a significant presence.

There will be a discussion panel featuring:

  • BodyShop Business Editor Jason Stahl
  • WIN Chair Cheryl Boswell
  • BodyShop Business Managing Editor Aime Szymanski
  • Babcox Media Audience Insights Manager Bruce Kratofil

Plus, you will have the chance to learn about WIN – its features, advantages and benefits – and why membership may help your career.
