According to Fran Stidham, education chair of the Knoxville I-CAR Committee, “The event went well. The main topic of discussion was the changes to I-CAR for 2019---‘Even Better I-CAR’---and while there is some concern with regard to ‘Road to Gold’ no longer being available, attendees’ responses were mostly positive.
“We had around 40 attendees at our December meeting. The meeting met and possibly exceeded our expectations as far as attendance and participation in the discussion about the I-CAR changes. Our committee was recognized as Platinum again.”
In addition to electing officers for 2019, the Knoxville I-CAR Committee recognized Keith Kuhn, a long-term TCAT instructor who retired at the end of 2018, for his contributions to the industry and the committee. Also, Jerry Dalton, president of the Knoxville I-CAR Committee, recognized two schools that benefited from the group’s golf tournament, each of which demonstrate a criterion of teaching I-CAR standards and curriculum to its students. TCAT Morristown was represented by Randy Dunn, while Jason Whitson represented Greene Technology Center.
Stidham added, “Bringing the industry together is extremely important, and our meetings provide members with an opportunity to stay current on industry trends, training and customer service.”
