NORTHBROOK, IL — May 23, 2019 — CIECA has announced that it will hold its next board meeting on Wednesday, May 29 in Austin, Texas. The meeting, which will be held concurrently with this year’s Dig|In (Digital Insurance) conference, will take place at the Hilton Austin hotel from 8:30 a.m. to noon CST. The first portion of the CIECA spring board meeting is open to all stakeholders in the property restoration and collision repair industries.

“This year, we decided to hold our spring board meeting during the Dig|In conference,” said Steve Betley, CIECA’s chairman of the board. “We touch so many aspects of the collision repair industry and thought this would be a good opportunity for us to explore the general Insuretech environment.”

During the open portion of the board meeting, CIECA’s tactical plan and a building management system (BMS) executive summary will be shared, as well as a report from the Standards Advisory Board about the organization’s committees. The remainder of the meeting will include reports from the executive, finance, and marketing committees and a review of the strategic plan.
