New post and new challenges ahead for ACIA

New collision industry body, ACIA, has taken the next step toward helping shape a unified  voice in addressing the industry’s skill challenge.

The Australian Collision Industry Alliance has appointed Hiliary Bradbury as an executive administrator to further enhance the organisations abilities as a unified group to voice collision industry issues.

ACIA founding Director Rob Bartlett said Bradbury has had previous experience in administration of a not-for-profit entity through her role as Secretariat with the Auto Glass Association.

“Hiliary brings to this new role a wealth of relevant experience in providing administration support for an industry body” Bartlett said.

“She has expertise in understanding the challenges and opportunities that present in representing and managing an emerging entity that has a variety of different members and stakeholders.”

One of her key responsibilities, will be to manage memberships and liaison with repairers. Following on from recent information nights, registrations for membership of the ACIA are starting to come in from repairers, along with support from industry partners.

Bradbury said she was excited to take on the role at the newly formed industry body.

“I fully appreciate the task ahead for the industry in increasing its attractiveness and making career pathways easier to navigate,” Bradbury said.

“I look forward to supporting the board and the members on initiatives to sustain the industry.”

All contributions to ACIA are tax deductable and go to support its key initiatives of attracting and retaining people to expand the work force.

The alliance’s goal is the sustainability and long-term success of the Collision Repair Industry.

Last month ACIA completed a three state information tour aimed at generating membership across the collision industry and adding weight to its efforts to address some of its key issues.

ACIA wants all industry professional and collision repair centres to consider connecting with Hiliary Bradbury and the ACIA team to explore opportunities for collaboration and learn more about ACIA’s initiatives to support and empower the collision repair industry in Australia.
