SCRS To Present Awards At Collision Industry Red Carpet Awards Breakfast During SEMA Show

As part of the morning ceremony, SCRS will deliver the first-ever March Taylor Kina'ole Award. The Hawaiian word Kina'ole is the embodiment of excellence in the highest form.

The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) has announced the first annual Collision Industry Red Carpet Awards Breakfast at the 2017 SEMA Show. This event will be free to attend, and will be held from 7:30-9 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1 in Ballrooms D-E in the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino.

The event will feature some of the most prestigious awards and recognitions from industry organizations, highlighting standout individuals and businesses in the collision repair industry.

As part of the morning ceremony, SCRS will deliver the first-ever March Taylor Kina’ole Award. The Hawaiian word Kina’ole is the embodiment of excellence in the highest form. It is often defined as “Doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, in the right place, to the right person, for the right reason, with the right feeling, the first time.”

Many within SCRS and the collision repair industry learned life lessons about Kina’ole from March Taylor, then owner of Auto Body Hawaii in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, and SCRS board member. Ten years ago, on Aug. 26, 2007, Taylor passed away.

“We all lost an invaluable man, friend, mentor and ally that day,” said SCRS Past Chairman Barry Dorn. “March would be the first to tell you that he did nothing ‘significant’ and he was humble beyond belief but he could bridge gaps, change peoples’ minds and move progress forward by simply being who he was. That is the legacy that we all must continue. Individuals like March do not come around often, and it is so important to recognize it when they do, encourage it, and to carry on with what he has started and grow it for future generations.”

Event awards will include:

BodyShop Business Executive of the Year Awards
CIECA Electronic Commerce of the Year Award;

Outstanding Achievement Awards

I-CAR Russ Verona Memorial Award;

Jeff Silver Award;

Board of Directors Chairman’s Award

National Auto Body Council Award of Distinction;

Body Image Award

The Collision Industry Red Carpet Awards Breakfast places a priority on encouraging and recognizing greatness in individuals, companies and actions in the collision repair industry in a place where the excitement and energy of the SEMA Show provides the perfect backdrop for such distinguished presentations.

Seating for breakfast will be on a first come, first serve basis, and will be limited to 200 available seats. Organizers request attendees RSVP no later than Sept. 30.
