Mission Statement: To develop, implement and promote community-based initiatives that exemplify the professionalism and integrity of the collision repair industry.
The National Auto Body Council® (NABC®) is a not-for-profit 501c(6) organization committed to the goal of improving the image of all dedicated collision industry professionals, while ensuring the industry is recognized as essential in serving the community. The NABC® also implements the programs and activities that define it and give shape to its mission.
The ongoing and continued success of the NABC® is a direct result of the efforts and support of our sponsoring companies and membership. We are made distinctive by the fact that as an organization we are focused solely upon this objective. Creating positive Industry image is our only priority, therefore, it gets all our attention.
NABC® initiatives unite public relations and marketing principles with the concept of community service. The good works conducted by collision repairers and their inter-industry partners are always of concrete benefit to the recipient, setting a sincere and proper tone for our industry when the event attracts media attention. Over time, the professionalism, selfless nature, and exemplary character of the collision industry is brought into plain sight on a regular basis until it remains top of mind with the public.
Though unified in intent, the specifics of each NABC® project differ and target diverse community needs. More information on these is provided elsewhere on this website.
