FACA’s Cathy Mills Speaks to Girl Scouts at NACE Show About Careers in the Collision Industry

Written by Staff

The Girl Scouts of Citrus Council joined the industry on the NACE show floor Saturday, October 8th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

The girls met with female leaders in the industry, learned about the influential and transformative work being done by women in this field and explored the expo floor searching for those unique “tools for success” our industry has to offer. Among the women who spoke to the girls was Cathy Mills, Executive Director of the Florida Auto Collision Alliance (FACA).

Mills stated, “I had the opportunity of giving them the opening talk on Saturday morning. With my mother, myself, and my daughter as Girl Scout troop leaders it was a privilege to speak to the girls about diverse career opportunities available in this industry. Speaking to them about a bit of my history in the industry and my journey from a parts driver to the executive director of the FACA. How as long as you give whatever you do 110% you can succeed at anything. I have always been passionate about education and supporting women in the industry.”

This year Collision Hub, who has put the event on for the last two years, also added a panel discussion and lunch hosted by LKQ where the Girl Scouts had a chance to meet with and hear from leaders in the industry on topics ranging from the science behind the collision repair industry to the diverse career opportunities available.

Girl Scouts: Tools for Success was powered by Enterprise Rent-A-Car and was made possible by the generous sponsorship of companies at every level of the collision repair industry.
