planning. "We had a great meeting," said Auto Glass Safety
Council president Deb Levy, "and I believe we have a great
blueprint for the future of the organization.

Committee was the integration of technical-based auto glass certification
with the AGRSS-Registered Company program," she added. "After
a lot of discussion with a number of excellent ideas, a task force
was formed to complete the integration."
