Glass Expo Midwest™ 2010 to Feature Expanded Seminar Program
December 16, 2009

Glass Expo Midwest 2010, which is scheduled to take place March 16-17 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center located in Schaumburg, Ill., will feature an expanded seminar and education program that covers some of the most relevant topics for the auto glass industry.

Certification Programming and Testing

Lead by Bob Beranek of Auto Glass Consultants in Sun Prairie, Wis., this technical session is based on the Independent Glass Association's (IGA) AGRSS-Registered Auto Glass Technician Certification course. It is designed to give technicians one more instructional experience before taking IGA's final certification exam. Qualified technicians will be able to take a written version of IGA's final certification exam immediately following the technical session. Qualified test takers who pass will receive IGA certification.

Proper Auto Glass Replacement Demonstration

Also lead by Beranek, attendees will be able to learn a few tricks of the trade from the world's best auto glass technician. Participants can view a step-by-step demonstration of a safe vehicle windshield installation and the speaker will discuss details about full versus partial cut-out methodologies, the importance of pre-inspection of the vehicle, proper safety precautions as well as moulding and windshield removal procedures used in the preparation of a vehicle.

What's Hot in the AGR Industry?

Debra Levy, publisher of AGRR magazine, will discuss some of the hottest topics in the AGRR industry. This seminar is always filled with breaking news and attendees will learn about the AGRSS validation program, the Z26 standard, marketing efforts of national chains and much more.

New to the 2010 schedule, the program also will feature a special session. Marilyn Moats Kennedy, of Career Strategies and author of "Office Politics: Seizing Power/Wielding Clout," will help participants "Learn How to Manage All Ages - From Youth to Golden Agers." This session will educate attendees regarding the five age groups in the workplace, their traditional values and their differing views on the role of managers, employer/employee loyalty, and much more. Attendees will learn ways of communicating that deliver the same message in ways that each group understands and responds to. This special event will take place on March 16, from 1:30-3 p.m.
