Trade Media Supports
Consumer Education
The auto care industry trade media
continues to provide tremendous support
for the Car Care Council's "Be Car Care
Aware" consumer education campaign,
greatly assisting in the council's efforts
to promote the benefits of regular
vehicle care, maintenance and repair.
With the trade media's ongoing
assistance, the council has been able
to keep auto care industry members
informed about the campaign's latest
initiatives, as well as encourage industry
companies and organizations to participate
in National Car Care Month in April and
Fall Car Care Month in October. The
trade media has been generous with
devoting their valuable space to run press
releases, bylined articles and house ads.
