The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) is now accepting applications for seats on its board of directors. The board exists to guide the organization in furthering the role of women in the collision repair industry, promoting education, professional advancement and networking.
It consists of representatives from various collision repair industry segments including (but not limited to) collision repair shops, distributors, suppliers, consultants, paint manufacturers, recyclers and insurance companies. The only requirement being that the applicants are WIN members in good standing.
“Being involved in WIN whether on a committee or the board is very rewarding. It’s a great way to give back to the industry and get involved,” said Cheryl Boswell, WIN chair and chair of the board nominating committee. “WIN is seeking members to apply for seats on our 2020 board as we continue to work together to drive the future of collision repair by attracting, developing and advancing women.”
The WIN board of directors provides overall strategic direction for the WIN and is responsible for making policy decisions that execute on WIN’s vision and mission.
“It’s an exciting time for WIN. As we enter a new decade, we are moving forward with new programs and benefits for our members and sponsors,” said Kathy Coffey, a member of the current board, executive committee and nominating committee co-chair. “We encourage involvement from all segments of our industry. The board is looking forward to hearing new voices to help us drive the future of collision repair.”
Each year, the board updates its strategic plan and each member contributes to the execution of that plan. The volunteer board members work together to foster an environment that encourages the recruitment, retention, education and networking of women in the collision repair industry.
New board members will begin their term and will be introduced to the organization at large at the 2020 Educational Conference, which takes place May 3-5 in Newport Beach, California.
The deadline for applications is Feb. 28. For application requirements and details, visit www.womensindustrynetwork.com.
