Howdy to all my fellow recyclers!
Well, I am sure we are all in the same wonderful boat that is, what our government likes to call,
economic recovery from the recession. All I can say is, if this is what economic recovery feels
like, I hate to see it get any better. That being said, things are not all bad. From here we can look
at markets correcting themselves after being at a falsely overinflated value, and get back to the
realism of what things are actually worth. It’s also a good time to take advantage of market lows
to beef up inventory for the fall and winter repair season. There are a lot of great business opportunities
out there to be had.
On the CARS end of things, we just wrapped up our CARS Annual Meeting at the Ramada Inn,
Green Bay. It was a great time full of food, fun, and education. We had Dave Bishop, from United
Healthcare go over important changes with the Affordable Care Act. William Velin from Wells
Fargo Insurance gave a great presentation on Data Breaches and how to protect your company.
Larry Terrian with WACTAL spoke to us about the body shop industry. We also had Bob Remington
from Remington Auto Salvage give us some updates and training on the CARS of WI Warranty
program. As usual we are always looking for ways to make this event a valuable experience
for our members. If you have suggestions about what you would like to see for future meetings and conventions, please feel free
to contact us with your thoughts. read more.
