Global Industry Endorsements Return for NACE 2005

May 19, 2005

The five industry organizations that endorsed NACE 2004 have returned to endorse the 2005 International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE).

Their endorsement once again entitles their members to a discount on the NACE Congress Package registration fee. The endorsers of NACE 2005 are: the Association Internationale Des Reparatuers En Carrosserie (AIRC), the California Autobody Association (CAA), the Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF), the California Automotive Wholesalers’ Association (CAWA) and the National Auto Body Council (NABC).

Members of the Automotive Service Association (ASA) – the NACE sponsor – will also receive a discount on the NACE Congress registration fee.

“The NACE Endorsement Program for the California Autobody Association (CAA) is a way for our association to participate in NACE,” said David McClune, CAA executive director. “We promote the NACE event to our members and have an opportunity to interact with our membership through meetings and exhibiting on the NACE floor. Our members recognize the importance of being part of NACE because of the state-of-the-art exposition, the valuable seminars, and being able to interact with the industry leaders and vendors.”

“The National Auto Body Council continues to endorse NACE. Holding our Annual Meeting at NACE has allowed our members to actively participate in elections; meet the Council’s Directors; and, by visiting our booth, learn about the new, image-enhancing programs we are involved in,” commented Chuck Sulkala, NABC executive director. “This year we hope to have a major surprise to show the Industry. We look forward to sharing the excitement of this annual industry event this year in Las Vegas.”

Endorsing organizations promote NACE to their respective memberships and receive recognition in NACE literature and on the NACE website ( These groups have the opportunity to earn NACE points based on their members’ level of participation in this year’s event.
