Help Change the Future of our Industry

Posted By: Pauline Perenack

One of the issues plaguing the repair industry today is the fact that the average age within the industry is 40 years old, and younger generations just aren’t entering the industry in great enough numbers to balance it out.

With that in mind, the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) has been working hard this year to put together an initiative to get more graduating collision students into the industry. As such, they have decided that any industry business that makes a tax-deductible donation to CREF by December 31, 2013 and joins the Industry Leadership Circle, will have the opportunity to work with CREF to have their entry-level employment opportunities distributed to CREF’s national database of collision school programs.

As such, if you’re looking for a great way to get your current and upcoming employment opportunities out to a national database, and ensure you’re getting quality, qualified applicants, make sure to take advantage of this unique opportunity. It’s a great way to not only help support schools and students across the country, but it’s a great way to find the employees you’re looking for.

If you’re interested in joining the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s Industry Leadership Circle donor recognition program, contact Director of Development, Brandon Eckenrode at 847-463-5244. Industry businesses can learn more information about the organization and make a donation online by visiting
