Committee Goals - 2018

1. Achieve Road to Gold Shop Growth Goal – This goal is the same as in 2017. We set a national growth goal of 1,885 shops (of the next 10,000). 


We believe that the volunteers on each committee best know their markets and their respective business climate. Taking this into consideration, the growth goal is set at referring 10 shops per metro market and 5 shops per rural market (“metro” and “rural” will be defined by your regional BDM) to I-CAR®. The committee is expected to approach any interested shop that has never trained with I-CAR, or that has not trained with I-CAR in the past 18 months, and complete the shop’s Employee Roster Update. The completed roster is to be emailed to your BDM so the committee receives credit, and a copy sent to the Customer Care team at Customer_Care@I-CAR.com. The Customer Care team will contact and onboard the shop once the referral is received. The BDM will update the committee goal report to acknowledge that the referral has been received, giving the committee credit for the referral.
 
2. Achieve Welding Training and Certification Recruitment Goal – It is imperative that I-CAR grow its welding instructor team to meet the demand of an industry that recognizes the importance of delivering a “complete, safe and quality repair.” To achieve this goal, each committee is expected to refer potential welding instructor candidates to their respective regional BDM. Metro markets are to refer 4 candidates. Rural markets are to refer 1 candidate. Regional BDMs will define “metro” and “rural” by committee. Once received, the committee goal report will be credited for the referral. 

3. Achieve Hands-On Recruitment Goal – As with the Welding initiative, instructors are also needed for I-CAR’s Hands-On Skills training. Committees are expected to refer prospective Hands-On Skills training instructor candidates to their respective regional BDM. Metro markets are to refer 2 candidates, while rural markets are to refer 1 candidate. Regional BDMs will define “metro” and “rural” by committee. Once received, the committee goal report will be credited for the referral. 

4. Achieve In-Shop Knowledge Assessment™ Goal – This goal is to generate additional demand for In-Shop Knowledge Assessments. Each committee is required to generate leads that result in 1 assessment in 2018. This goal is closely aligned to the growth goal. During the Customer Care onboarding process, a shop may opt to get to Gold Class® in a shorter timeframe through the In-Shop Knowledge Assessment process. Credit will be given to the committee should that happen. If not, the committee will need to market In-Shop Knowledge Assessment and secure the In-Shop Knowledge Assessment roster of an interested shop. Once secured, the roster is to be emailed to the respective regional BDM with a copy sent to Face2Face@I-CAR.com. After the In-Shop Knowledge Assessment is completed, the committee will receive credit and the committee goal report will be updated. The committee will be responsible for communicating the In-Shop Knowledge Assessment strategy within their market and working with the BDM to get the shop to commit to an In-Shop Knowledge Assessment event. 

5. Career & Technical Schools Contact/Assist & Promote National Scheduling Goal – Set at the number of schools in the netFORUM system within the committee market, this goal is designed to have committees reach out to the schools within their market to: 

 • Promote I-CAR PDP/EE™ within the schools
​ • Promote National Scheduling and Fixed Training ​Sites by helping with site attainment
 ​• Promote National Scheduling with site renewal
 ​• Promote/provide assistance with National Annual Scheduling (NAS) cadence/scheduling
 ​• Promote conversations around technician shortage and industry value 

There is a form to report these contacts; when completed and submitted, the committee goal report is automatically updated.
 
6. Complete Special Event – Complete 1 Special Event in 2018. A Special Event includes any activity to support your local CTE schools and can be held in coordination with any industry-related supplier, the CREF Foundation, etc. It can include a fundraiser, job fair, industry awareness event, etc. There is a form for this and once completed and submitted, the committee goal report will be updated. 

7. Watch 360 Video – The committee Chairman and Vice Chairman are to watch 1 of 6 available 360 videos (not the same video) and complete a very short survey. Once the video is watched and the survey is completed and submitted, they receive credit. Watching the videos will enable the committee Chairman and Vice Chairman to share great information with the committee members, who in turn can share it with others in the industry. 

8. Verify Committee Roster by July 1 – This is the same goal as in previous years, with a timing change. A full 6 months are allowed to get updated. Once the committee roster is updated through the online portal, the committee goals report will be updated.
