Glas-Weld Webinar Scheduled for July 22

Glas-Weld Systems Inc., headquartered in Bend, Ore., is hosting a series of web-based seminars (webinars) related to the auto glass repair industry (see GlassBYTES, May 31, 2005). The second session is currently scheduled for July 22 at 9 a.m., PDT.

The one-hour session will focus on the development of an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Standard for windshield repair in the United States.

"We are extremely pleased with how our very first session came together earlier this month," said Mike Boyle, president of Glas-Weld Systems. "The combination of technology and personalization that this medium offers makes it a promising vehicle for communication within our industry and with our customers."

Boyle will serve as moderator for the upcoming webinar, which will cover what ANSI is and what it takes to create an ANSI standard, why a standard is important to the industry, the goals for the standard and how it will affect technicians, according to a Glas-Weld press release.

The seminar should not be expected to delve into specifics of the ANSI standard that is currently being created, according to a member of the Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standard (ROLAGS) committee that is establishing the standard. To discuss in detail what is happening with an ANSI-proposed standard before it is complete and accepted by ANSI could jeopardize the process, the ROLAGS committee member said.

Additional webinar sessions are scheduled for August 10, September 7 and October 5, 2005.
