As we head into 2016, I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon, and recognize, the achievements of our association in 2015.
- Implementation of Bryan White as Executive Director of AOCA. The results of which have been positive.
- Negotiation and creation of a co-located iFLEX 2016 with the International Carwash Association's The Car Wash Show, which will provide an expanded opportunity for our members to network and learn.
- Creation of comprehensive member benefit programs, including cost savings through Savings 4 Members and custom HR support through HR Affinity Group.
- Eliminated a 2015 operating deficit
Needless to say, 2015 was a good year for AOCA; none of which would have been possible without the dedication of our membership, volunteers and strong Board of Directors. For that, I thank each and every one of you.
I have some news regarding leadership to share. It is with a heavy heart that I announce I will be stepping down as Board President, effective immediately.
Due to very recently selling my business, and per AOCA bylaws, I am no longer eligible to maintain this position.
Vice President David Haney will be assuming the role of AOCA Board President.
I heartily thank the AOCA community for which I have served. I ask that you give David and this excellent board your full support. I have tremendous respect for David and know that he will step into this role with confidence. I look forward to watching as you capitalize on our progress from 2015, and grow into 2016 and beyond.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to AOCA headquarters at
