The Auto Care Association is pleased to announce that it has commenced registrations for its upcoming Fall Leadership Days and Legislative Summit. These events are set to take place from September 20-22, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C. The decision to host both events concurrently and at the same venue for the second year running represents a strategic move to channel the combined influence of the Association’s leaders to advance the industry, the association said.
“The efforts we’re seeing this summer to stop our industry’s momentum of securing our right to repair are only ramping up,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association. “I hope to see faces from across our industry at the Legislative Summit this fall, where we will speak in one unified voice with members of Congress on the importance of supporting our industry by passing the REPAIR Act.”
A cornerstone of the automotive calendar, the Auto Care Legislative Summit stands alone as the only legislative fly-in that exclusively addresses issues pertinent to the independent aftermarket industry. Participants can look forward to a robust agenda that includes policy education, speeches from leading policymakers, and one-on-one meetings with congressional members and their aides on Capitol Hill. The Association’s government affairs team stands ready to support all attendees with a comprehensive package that includes schedules, resources, and talking points for each engagement. Attendees are encouraged to bring their passion and drive for the industry to the table.
The Fall Leadership Days event is a crucial forum where the association’s active members and top-tier volunteers convene to deliberate on pressing industry issues and shape vital initiatives. It serves as a dynamic platform where the association’s volunteer leaders from its member communities and advisory committees gather to exchange insights on prevailing community and industry trends. The input gathered is instrumental in guiding the association’s overall strategic approach.
Both events require registration. While a registration fee applies to the 2023 Auto Care Fall Leadership Days event, it is waived for official volunteer leaders.
