As we move into the months of the local fairs, leaf peepers, back-to-schoolers and preparing for the holidays, we also need to find time in our busy schedules to prepare our washes for our upcoming season which will soon be upon us. Preventative maintenance is key to minimizing downtime and costly repairs on the machinery in our washes. The Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) will be providing a substantial seminar on some important preventative maintenance through the Car Wash College at the convention this October at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ (visit www.nrccshow.com for details and registration). Putting together a checklist and or hiring your local service company provide your wash the attention it needs is vital for minimizing your headaches and increasing your potential during a busy winter washing season. This seminar is the first one at the NRCC and a must-see for all operators big and small!
With this article being my last column as President of the CCA I would like to take this opportunity to thank our membership, and Board of Directors, all of whom are volunteers, for their many hours of service to the CCA. Without the Board of Directors, the CCA simply would not function.
All the hard work that was associated with being your CCA president was made much easier by the help of the entrusted Board of Directors whose commitment and dedication made much progress, and many beneficial decisions to promote our industry, during my presidency. We will continue as always to develop, contribute and move forward with other positive steps to grow our industry, which is why we need to support the CCA as members and enjoy the many upcoming events we host. Please come out and support our efforts!
I wish all of you good health, wealth, prosperity and of course well-deserved favorable weather in the coming years. Thanks again!
