Car Wash - Spring 2016 - (Page 11)

LETTER FROM THE ICA THE OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF INTERNATIONAL CARWASH ASSOCIATION® 230 EAST OHIO STREET SUITE 603 CHICAGO, IL 60611 WWW.CARWASH.ORG +1 (888) 422-8422 INFO@CARWASH.ORG ICA STAFF ERIC WULF CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER EWULF@CARWASH.ORG CLAIRE MOORE CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER CMOORE@CARWASH.ORG CARRIE NORTH DIRECTOR OF SALES CNORTH@CARWASH.ORG THE SPRING ISSUE of CAR WASH Magazine is my favorite issue of the year. It's the largest issue of the year, which means it's the richest issue in terms of content depth and breadth. And, more people see this issue than any other issue during the year. That means we have more opportunities to share great stories. But it's also my favorite because it coincides with The Car Wash Show. The energy around preparing for the show is amazingly positive and incredibly exciting as we get ready for the largest gathering of car wash professionals in the world. That energy spills into everything else we work on during this time of year. The show brings the car wash industry together to learn, to share ideas and to see the latest equipment from suppliers. There are few events where you are able to capture the essence of what is so important to the people in this industry - our community. This year, International Carwash Association is expanding that sense of community through an increase in the number events for car wash professionals. Adding a Sporting Retreat, a tour of car washes and historical sites in Europe, a Supplier Summit, and the innovative "un-trade show" for car wash professionals called Splash! 2016, creates a portfolio of events, both large and small, to help you connect in meaningful ways. You can read more about the events later in this issue of CAR WASH Magazine, and online at I'm excited for the new events. The opportunity to bring people together is an energizing experience for those involved and brings great energy that I think will continue to positively contribute to all that our community can achieve. Soon, I may have stiffer competition for picking my favorite issue of CAR WASH Magazine.
