AutoCare Insider Volume 105 - 2

PRESIDENT'S
MESSAGE
WANTED:
MEMBER ADVOCATES
"There is a point in every contest where
sitting on the sidelines is not an option."
THIS quote, attributed to legendary
North Carolina basketball coach Dean
Smith, could not be more relevant
for our industry than it is today. Your
business, your livelihood and your
successors' industry are being affected
every day by decisions being made
in Washington, D.C., in your state
and in your congressional district.
Issues such as the Border
Adjustment Tax (BAT), access to
the embedded software needed to
produce compatible replacement parts
and perform necessary repairs, and,
of course, telematics, are just a few
of the issues that your association is
working on feverishly at all levels.
We can't do it alone.
The strongest personal connection
and most powerful way to get a
legislator to listen and pay attention
to our issues is when it is delivered
in-person by a member who is their
constituent - the voter. It is you,
our member, who can be the most
effective advocate for the association.
The Auto Care Legislative Summit in
October is your opportunity to be that
advocate. You can tell your legislator in
person about the economic and political

importance of the auto care industry
and advocate for the pressing issues
we face. Contrary to what some might
think, the legislators and their staff do
want to hear your views on issues. They
are in Washington to work for you.
I urge you to seriously consider
attending the summit yourself or
sending a representative from your
company who can articulate your
position on issues important to your
business. Our government affairs
staff will make appointments for
you with your elected officials, help
prepare you for the issues and the
messaging that will be presented
and offer tips on effective lobbying.
Plus, you will get to hear from Bob
Woodward, the two-time Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist and Washington
Post associate editor. Woodward, who
became famous with Carl Bernstein
for breaking the news about the
Watergate scandal, will share with
you stories and his insight about
what's really going on in Washington
today. Talk about good timing!
Now is the time to get involved, to
speak up, to influence decisions that
are being made by your elected officials
