Auto Care Association communities help you connect with like-minded professionals and collaborate to help advance every corner of the auto care industry. Advisory committees are comprised of volunteer leaders who provide input and guidance to the board and staff, and act as an industry sounding board.

Applications to join our advisory committees open in October for 3-year terms starting in January. Committee assignments are made by the chairman of the board, with input from the association’s staff and leadership.

To participate as a community member, choose and join a community here and the Auto Care Association liaison to that community can share more information.
