MSCRA Partners with MSU CAVS Event

Written by

The Mississippi Collision Repair Association (MSCRA) is excited to announce its first-ever partnership event with Mississippi State University’s Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS). 

On Saturday, August 26, CAVS will host collision repair industry professionals at its facility in Starkville, MS, for a full day of training and education for shop owners and their employees, titled, “The Future of Autonomous Cars: They’re here. What is our role as repair professionals?”


Based on a financial report conducted by KPMG on the effects of autonomous vehicles on car insurance, the $137 billion industry can expect a 71 percent reduction by 2050.


John Morgan Hughes, Executive Director of MSCRA, asks, “How would this affect your business?”


Check-in for the training event begins at 9 a.m. with a welcome at 9:30 a.m., followed by a facility tour until 11:30, when the keynote presentation will be delivered. After lunch, CAVS will facilitate a discussion on autonomous vehicles that will conclude the day’s training. At 6 p.m., attendees may also opt to attend a reception dinner at Restaurant Tyler. The association will be treating first-time MSCRA meeting attendees to dinner.


Those interested in attending should RSVP to John Morgan Hughes at 601-672-4988 or
