Message from the President

Dear Fellow Carwash Professionals, Friends and Colleagues:

The start of any new year brings with it a hope for change, advancement, and growth. Combine this with the fact that 2020 was not the clean start to a new decade that we were anticipating. So for many reasons, I think we can all say that we look to 2021 with a renewed hope of progress while also celebrating the great obstacles we overcame amidst a global pandemic.

While we are mindful of the limitations that still lay before us as far as in-person events and activities, the Carwash Association of Pennsylvania is moving forward with the expectation that we will enjoy various networking events this year. Our annual dinner and tabletop show will look a little (or a lot) different than in previous years. While we work to determine the best venue and format for this event, we will be sure to keep our membership informed. We also plan to bring together carwash professionals to enjoy a baseball outing this summer and golf in the fall for our annual golf outing fundraiser.

Specific dates will be confirmed soon, so please stay tuned into our communications, visit our website at www.pacarwash.org, or email executivedirector@pacarwash.org to receive updates. We really hope to have you join us at one or all of these events – families and spouses are welcome!

If you are not a current CAP member, we invite you to join our growing network of operators and vendors from across the Commonwealth. We have hit the ground running in 2021 with plans to invest additional resources into our membership this year, resources that will help all carwash businesses, both operators and vendors, better connect, collaborate and contribute to our industry. Please visit us today at www.pacarwash.org learn more and get involved.

It is with great pride that I say that the carwash industry proved its resilience and commitment to being a helpful community in 2020. Now into a new year, some of us will enter the industry while others will exit, some of us will grow or expand, while others may look to downsize or sell. The common denominator is our passion for serving others, in whatever form that may come. Thank you all for serving our industry well and being a part of this very special community.

Best wishes for a safe, healthy and prosperous 2021!

Keith Lutz
President, Carwash Association of Pennsylvania

About CAP

logobigIn the early 90’s car wash owners and operators rallied protect and promote their livelihood, as local and state government agencies continued to expand their regulatory reach on small businesses in the Commonwealth. The Carwash Association of Pennsylvania was formed by a group of proactive industry leaders to advance and safeguard the business interests of the car wash industry. Their vision was to build a trade association that would foster and support efforts to improve and expand the quality and standards of industry services. Further, Association founders wished to establish and facilitate a networking venue that promoted the development of industry relationships where members could share best-practices and business experiences. Do you share that vision?
