The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) is now accepting applications for Board of Directors seats. Board members represent a wide variety of different industry segments including collision repair shops, jobbers, suppliers, paint manufacturers, consultants, recyclers and insurance firms.

WIN welcomes participants from different areas of the collision repair industry, mandating only that those applying are in good standing as WIN members.

“Volunteering for Board service is an outstanding opportunity to have continuous influence on our industry,” said Denise Caspersen, WIN Chair and Chair of the Board Development/Nominating Committee.  “WIN is seeking motivated members to apply for seats on our 2015 Board as we continue to ‘drive’ growth and success in the coming years.”

WIN’s Board of Directors provides overall strategic direction for the organization and is responsible for making policy decisions designed to achieve the organization’s mission. “Engaging at the Board level is an outstanding way to advance our industry and guide the success of WIN, while building leadership skills, business acumen and invaluable industry relationships,” added Melissa Miller, a member of the current Board who also serves on the Board Development/Nominating Committee.

The Board’s focus is on:

  • Supporting and enhancing the role women play in the industry;
  • Constantly improving the WIN Value Proposition;
  • Increasing industry visibility of WIN;
  • Supporting industry education efforts.

Each year, the Board updates its strategic plan, identifying the direction for the organization in the coming year. Board members contribute to the execution of that plan in a variety of ways. The volunteer Board members work together to foster an environment that encourages the education, recruitment, retention and networking of women in the collision industry. Specific requirements include:

  • Monthly Board teleconferences;
  • Active involvement on a committee(s);
  • Attendance at WIN Educational Conference and various industry events as available.

New Board members will begin their term and be introduced to the organization at large at the 2015 Educational Conference, which runs from May 4–6 in Baltimore, Md. at the Baltimore Marriott—Waterfront.

The deadline for applications is February 28, 2015. For application requirements and further details, go to http://thewomensindustrynetwork.ning.com/page/join-the-board.
