NCACAR Starts 2018 With a Bang!

Written by

The North Carolina Association of Collision and Autobody Repair (NCACAR) plans to kick off 2018 with a first meeting of the new year that will demonstrate just how much value it wants to bring to its members.


The meeting will feature Todd Tracy and Mike Jones, and is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 25, with dinner at 5 p.m. The meeting will be held at NOAH’s Event Center in Charlotte, NC. 


NCACAR President Brian Davies shared, “Our association’s focus is on the sustainability of the industry, and I can’t imagine anything that could have a bigger impact on this association and create a paradigm shift for the industry. I believe this will be the association’s largest game-changing event that helps us define how we want to change the industry.”


Although Attorney Todd Tracy has fought legal battles related to the automotive industry for decades, his recent $42 million victory in the John Eagle verdict has caught the collision repair industry’s attention. Tracy’s presentation, “Anatomy of a Lawsuit: 42 Million Reasons the Collision Repair Industry Should Stop Getting Bullied by Auto Insurance Carriers,” will provide an overview of advanced safety systems, the importance of following OEM repair procedures and what everyone should learn from the John Eagle case.


Davies stated, “It’s exciting to welcome a meeting presenter who can identify the need for change and help us affect change in our state. We want to create awareness of the liabilities involved in improperly repairing cars. Todd has an impeccable reputation, and his heart is in the right place. He really wants to change the industry for the better.”


The meeting’s second headliner will be Mike Jones, President of Discover Leadership Training, who will discuss “Becoming a Game Changer and Unleashing Your Untapped Potential.” 


According to Davies, “For someone of Mike’s caliber to speak to our young association, it can only help us grow and reach our untapped potential and focus on enhancing our leadership skills.


“What more could NCACAR ask than to receive training from these two industry experts?  My hope is that this meeting will inspire us to get where we’re going. I’m so excited, I can hardly contain myself!”

Non-members will be charged $20 to attend this meeting, but that fee will be waived if they choose to join the association. Annual memberships cost $350. PPG is sponsoring the meeting. 


Those interested in attending should RSVP to Josh Kent, Director of Membership, at by Jan.15.
