Toronto, Ontario — Are you a member of Canada’s automotive aftermarket with a vision for the direction you would like to see our industry head in? CCIF has announced that seats on the 2023 Steering Committee are now open to all stakeholder groups.
The committee is currently looking for applicants to fill the positions of collision operator, OEM representative, insurer and young leader (19 to 40 years of age).
Andrew Shepherd, executive director of I-CAR Canada and current committee member, wrote in an email, “The Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF) has operated for over 20 years as the nation’s central collision community.
“It has evolved from a series of networking events to a critical source of industry opinion, consensus and direction. AIA Canada has recently moved to integrate all arms of its collision sector supports—CCIF, I-CAR Canada, the Collision Repairer Council and the national board—to meet the urgent challenges of the sector. For CCIF, this means a substantial increase in resources and reach.”
The CCIF Steering Committee is comprised of six collision repair representatives, four supplier representatives, four OE representatives, three insurance representatives, one young leader, the senior director of AIA Canada’s industry programs, the CCIF director, in addition to several special advisory positions.
The current chair of the committee is Simplicity Car Care CEO Paul Prochilo.
