Message from the President

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Over the last several months, the Carwash Association of Pennsylvania (CAP) has been busy planning not one, not two, but three exciting events coming later this summer and early this fall. We are so excited to be gathering as groups again and feeling a sense of normalcy as we enjoy networking, sports, food, and industry expertise! Everyone is welcome to join us at these events; members, non-members, PA professionals, and people from well beyond Pennsylvania’s boarders! For more information on all our upcoming events, visit our website 

August 10 – CAP Baseball Outing

This year’s CAP Baseball Outing is back in Pittsburgh to see the Pirates take on the Cardinals on August 10. Come enjoy networking, food, friends, and a great evening of baseball. We have single tickets and sponsorships available. Attendees include operators, vendors, and board members – the whole family is welcome!

September 15 – Annual Dinner & Tabletop Show

This year’s Annual Dinner & Tabletop Show is going to be an exceptional experience with renowned carwash industry expert, Tyler Slaughter coming in all the way from Nashville to be our keynote speaker! This is a great opportunity to network with key industry professionals while gaining valuable knowledge from an industry leader. The dinner will take place in Hershey on Wednesday, September 15 with the CAP Golf Outing following the next day. This is a *FREE* benefit for members, or a modest investment from non-members. See our website for more details.

September 16 – CAP Golf Outing & Picnic Fundraiser

The CAP Golf Outing & Picnic Fundraiser is our most popular annual event. This year it will take place in Carlisle on Thursday, September 16 – the day after our Dinner and Tabletop Show. This makes it the perfect opportunity to visit Central PA overnight and enjoy two back-to-back days of networking and professional interaction that will set your business up for success for years to come. Attend solo or bring a group! All the details you need are on the CAP website. 

And don’t forget about the CAP Scholarship! 

We need your help spreading the word! A new $500 annual scholarship fund has been established to support the carwash community. Any student in or entering higher education and who is either employed by or the relative of a carwash professional may apply. We’ve extended the deadline! Visit today to learn more apply today!

Wishing you a fun and productive season with many “perfect” carwash days!

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?
