Glass Expo Midwest 2010 to Feature Expanded Seminar
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.
