AGSC Accredited Technician Newsletter - Spring 2020

Leading News

COVID 19 Crisis Affects Industry
The COVID-19 crisis has affected the whole world, including the highly-skilled auto glass technicians accredited by AGSC.

The ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS™ Standard – A Living Document
The ANSI/AGSC/Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard™ (AGRSS Standard for short) has been in existence for more than 20 years. Some industry members remember when there was no standard; others have never known the industry without it.

Send Us Your News
One of the challenges we face in the auto glass industry is marketing our industry, our companies and our staff outside of our auto glass bubble. We have great companies and amazing people in this multi-faceted industry of ours, and we need to get the word out.

We would like to feature more details about AGSC-accredited technicians in future newsletters and on social media. We want to know your latest news, both business and personal. Have you recently gotten married or added a child into your family? Are you signed up to run in a community 5K or half marathon? Have you participated in a charity event – food, clothing or blood drive? We want to know!

Please email Erin Miller so we can feature your news in a future newsletter or social media post.
