AGRSS Schedules First Conference

The Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards Council (AGRSS) has announced that it will hold its first ever conference October 16-17 at the Rio All Suites Hotel in Las Vegas. The announcement was made following the group's meeting in Minneapolis last week.

The group, which developed the auto glass industry's ANSI standard, is holding the event to provide more education and information to those interested in the standard and to AGRSS-registered companies. An agenda will be published within the next few weeks.

"We are very excited about this conference," said Cindy Ketcherside, AGRSS chairperson. "It's the first opportunity we've had to bring all our committee members and registered companies together to talk about how they are using the standard to advance their businesses."

Ketcherside said the group was also working on a day-long program for insurance company representatives who want to understand the AGRSS standard and who put safety first.
