SCRS Appoints 2004-05 Executive Board and Officers

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has appointed its board of directors and executive officers for the year 2004-2005. The election took place at the SCRS Annual Meeting on April 8 at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. For the second year in a row, Lou DiLisio was elected SCRS chairman of the board, an occurrence that has happened only twice before -- first, when inaugural Chairman Don Caldwell presided over consecutive terms in 1982-83 and 1983-84 and a second time, when Chairman Bob Jones held the office in 1990-91 and 1991-92.

RICHLAND, WA — The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has appointed its board of directors and executive officers for the year 2004-2005. The election took place at the SCRS Annual Meeting on April 8 at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.

For the second year in a row, Lou DiLisio was elected SCRS chairman of the board, an occurrence that has happened only twice before — first, when inaugural Chairman Don Caldwell presided over consecutive terms in 1982-83 and 1983-84 and a second time, when Chairman Bob Jones held the office in 1990-91 and 1991-92.

DiLisio is president of Automotive Industry Consulting (AIC) in Hoffman Estates, Ill., and has been an active member of SCRS for 19 years, having served on the board for 13 years. A well-known and respected leader in the collision repair industry, he recently completed a two-year term as the chairman of Collision Industry Conference (CIC), one of his many industry and personal accomplishments.

“I’m honored and humbled that I’ve been asked to repeat my term,” DiLisio says. “Some of the positive changes we’re trying to implement are complex and need more than a year to fulfill. I think the executive board understood that and considered it important that we keep building momentum toward completing our goals.”

The balance of the executive board for the year is as follows: Vice Chairman Tom Moreland (Georgia), Treasurer Gary Wano (Oklahoma-also serving a second consecutive term) and Secretary Barry Dorn (Virginia), a first-time Executive Board member.

In addition to its executive officers, SCRS announced the remainder of the board, which includes: Immediate Past Chairman Joel Lofton (Mississippi) and eight national directors: Chad Sulkala (Massachusetts-Director at Large), Bob Smith (Missouri), Dan Bailey (Missouri), Tim Waldren (Nevada), Farzam Afshar (California), Stacy Bartnik (Illinois), March Taylor (Hawaii), and Toby Chess (California).
