WMDA/CAR represents independent business professionals of service stations, repair facilities, convenience stores, and other automotive industry related businesses.
Due to the conflict during last year's convention and trade show, WMDA/CAR has changed the dates from September 24th - September 26th to September 10th - September 12th, 2015. We are aiming for a better and much smoother event this year compared to last year. We will be updating the website regularly to keep everyone posted on all information available pertaining to our upcoming convention and trade show. Make sure you save the dates! We look forward to seeing everyone in Ocean City this Fall.

Federal Lobby Day
On February 5th, WMDA/CAR will join forces with other associations including SSDA-AT (Service Station Dealers of America & Allied Trades) and TIA (Tire Industry Association) to go to Washington, DC for a day of meetings (and a luncheon) on Capitol Hill. The more attendees we have, the stronger our message becomes! Transportation will be proved from the WMDA/CAR office in Bowie to Washington, DC. There is no cost to participate in this all day event, and you are welcome to bring friends, family or employees, but we do need a head count in order to be sure we have enough seats at the luncheon and to see how many buses we will need. Please take a look at the schedule attached here , and RSVP to Roy Littlefield, IV at email@example.com or call 301-390-0900 ext 137 with the names of all who will be attending. You can also complete the registration form (download here and print out) and fax it to 301-390-3161.
