AGSC Holds Networking Event in Massachusetts

The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) held a networking event in South Attleboro, Mass., last spring. The event was held at AAA South Attleboro in April and was open to current and prospective members.

Peter Brown of Tiny & Sons Glass in Pembroke, Mass., who serves on the AGSC board of directors and chairs the marketing committee, and Jeff Martineau, an auto glass industry sales representative with Clarity Sales Associates and member of the marketing committee, provided an AGSC update. A question-and-answer session followed.
