BETHESDA, MD – January 18, 2017 – The Auto Care Association has launched, a new website for auto care professionals to get more involved in the public policy process. Two key elements of the association’s government affairs operation – grassroots advocacy and the Auto Care Political Action Committee (ACPAC) – will now be hosted on this website, with multiple tools and resources dedicated to each component.

The new advocacy platform provides a one-stop-shop for auto care professionals and their customers to contact legislators via email, phone or social media to express their views on issues that impact the auto care industry. Members will also find additional resources on how to host a legislator site visit or get more information about ACPAC, the only PAC focused exclusively on the auto care industry.
