It's time for positive changes in collision repair business. It's time for shops to make changes that benefit them and the vehicle owner, instead of accepting the changes that hurt them. Are you tired of hearing we don't pay for that, you charge too much or Joe, down the street doesn't charge for that? Well, our members and other shop owners around this great state are tired of it too. They are standing up and taking charge. We want to encourage you to do the same.
We want those that haven't joined our association, to do so. We need your support through membership and donations. You can't fix the industry alone and neither can we. We must join together for the benefit of our employees, customers and families. There are great things happening across the country. There are new associations popping up all around us. They are joining forces with existing groups and making strong strides toward taking back control of our industry.
In conclusion, no one person, shop or association can repair the industry. It takes a group effort. We need your commitment to "OUR" industry in order to make it what we want it to be. .
Why Join the HABA?
I have often just asked the reverse... Why aren't you a member?
If you are serious about your business future and plan to have some say in what that future is... then the answer is clear.
Many times I hear that associations never work, or it has been tried before, but the key point is that we must never quit trying, or working to protect our Industry. Otherwise, no one else will!
