Message From the Chair

        Serving on the Select Committee or as chairman of a council is a huge honor. It signifies that you’ve earned the confidence and respect of your peers. It also gives you an opportunity to be closely involved in the issues affecting your industry and to have a part in shaping how those issues are addressed. I’ve been privileged to serve as a member of the Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) Select Committee since 2000. I’ve also joined the ranks of the few who have become the chairman of PRO.

Additional Options and Opportunities for Today’s Market

About this product:

First, the obvious: The new-car market—traditionally fertile ground for restylers to cultivate—has become mired in the global recession. Extremely cautious consumers are holding off on big-ticket expenditures, and while reputable economists see glimmers of a rebound, business has yet to fully flex the recovery springboard.
