AGRSS Council Meets, Elects Three New Board Members

The Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS) Council and a variety of its committees met in Minneapolis yesterday to continue their work promoting safety in replacement auto glass. The marketing, credentialing and membership committees of the Council all met, as well as the Standards Committee and the AGRSS Board of Directors.

The Marketing Committee continued its work on development of consumer materials and new information for prospective registered companies and new registered company kits.

The Credentialing Committee provided an update of the newly expanded application for Conformance Assessment for Registered Companies. The changes were made as the result of a pilot program conducted with 11 auto glass retailers throughout the country.

The Membership Committee reported a great growth in numbers of registered companies to more than 1100 shops throughout the country.

The Standards Committee elected two new members to its board of directors: Carl Tompkins of SIKA Corporation and Bob Beranek of Auto Glass Consultants. Current chairperson Cindy Ketcherside of JCs Glass and Jean Pero of Mygrant Glass was re-elected. All will serve three-year terms beginning in January 2006.
