The new offices, at 180 Elgin Street, provide the national association with much needed space for staff and meetings. The offices house national association staff as well as I-CAR collision industry training operations.




Portraits of past presidents of the association are featured in the headquarters. Two past presidents, Dean Wilson and Ray Datt (second and third from the left) were on hand for the Grand Opening.
