Committee Goals 2019

1. TRAIN TO GAIN REFERRAL 

This goal is to promote the Professional Development Program™ enhancements and I-CAR® subscription model, as well as support the annual growth goal of 1,521 new shops in 2019.

We believe that the volunteers on each committee know their markets and their respective business climates best. Supporting the PDP enhancements is vital to the growth of I-CAR and the industry. Taking this into consideration, the growth goal is set each year to bring awareness and training to those shops that are not currently doing so. For this growth to continue, it is vitally important that the committees identify and have conversations with shops in their respective markets, conveying the new training available and the affordable subscription model. The request is to refer six shops to I-CAR by September 30, 2019 (end of Q3). Each committee is asked to approach any interested shop that has not trained with I-CAR in the past 18 months. Potentially, this conversation may result in an In-Shop Knowledge Assessment™ opportunity as well. Should this result, the committee will receive credit for both the Train to Gain goal and the In-Shop Knowledge Assessment goal. The committee will receive credit by having the conversation with the shop and then documenting the shop’s information on a form supplied by the regional BDP. Once the form is filled out and submitted to the regional BDP for verification, the committee goal report will be updated to acknowledge that the referral has been received, giving the committee credit for the referral.

2. ACHIEVE IN-SHOP KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENTS GOAL OF 1,144 SHOPS FOR 2019 

This goal is to generate additional demand for In-Shop Knowledge Assessments.

Each committee is asked to generate leads that result in three assessments in 2019. This goal is closely aligned to the growth goal. Each committee is asked to document the conversation with the shop’s name, contact person, time and date. That information is then emailed to the respective regional BDP on a form provided. Once the In-Shop Knowledge Assessment is scheduled, the committee will receive credit and the committee goal report will be updated. These activities should be completed by November 30.

3. SCHOOL GUIDANCE RELATIVE TO COLLISION REPAIR 

This goal is to have at least one committee member actively participate on a school advisory board. 

The committee should send the regional BDP the name of the school and the name of the department chairman.

4. COMMITTEE EDUCATION REQUIREMENT 

This goal is to have committee members complete these education requirements: 

Each committee member should be verified on the roster, take one I-CAR class (live, online or virtual) and complete a survey about it. Each committee officer should watch one I-CAR 360 video from the Repairability Technical Support(RTS) website and complete a short survey. After watching the video and completing and submitting the video, credit is earned. There currently are nine 360 videos available for viewing.

5. PDP-EDUCATION EDITION REQUIREMENT 

Each committee must identify at least one CTE school that doesn’t have a Professional Development Program-Eduction Edition™ (PDP-EE) in the committee’s market. Each committee should: 

a. Promote the I-CAR PDP-EE curriculum within the school 

b. Promote National Scheduling and fixed training sites by assisting with site attainment and retention 

c. Promote conversations around the technician shortage and industry value

There is a form to report these contacts, and once it is completed and submitted, the committee goal report is updated automatically. 

6. COMPLETE ONE FUNDRAISING EVENT 

Each committee should raise funds for the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) in general and secure donations of tools and equipment for CTE schools.

In addition, each committee should complete one special event in 2019. A special event includes any activity to support local CTE schools, and can be held in coordination with any industry-related supplier, CREF, etc. There is a form available for this activity, and once it is completed and submitted, the committee goal report will be updated.

7. COMPLETE ONE PUBLIC-FACING EVENT 

Each committee should promote support of Gold class® shops, promoting complete, safe and quality repairs. This includes: 

a. School event (career night to highlight the value of a collision repair career, a middle school event or a high school event as a last option) 

b. Promote I-CAR to the general public; this can be an industry awareness event, parade, recycled rides event, etc.

8. SUBMIT COMMITTEE ROSTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND NO LATER THAN MARCH 15 

Each roster must include the committee chair, myI-CAR® ID number and the name and contact information for each of the other officers and committee members.
