MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The Dates Have Changed for the 42nd Annual Convention & Mega Show

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.
