2015 Upper Midwest Auto and Truck Recyclers Convention and Trade Show - May 7-9

From the Secretary's Desk

The CARS Annual meeting is in the books. I will have the list of new directors and officers in the next newsletter.

The Upper Midwest Salvage Convention was a success and CARS of Wisconsin made over $9000.00. That will go a long way to paying our bills and keep the association in the black. We do accrue a lot of bills in a year. We have a great lobbyist watching out for us in Madison. They have been having meetings at different yards around the state with state senators and representatives. We have opened some eyes in Madison as to what we are doing. We need to pay for the speakers we bring in for any of our meeting and educational forums. We have our directors attend Hill Days and any meetings that need our attention in Madison. We also have phone bills, internet bills, postage, WICAR and my wages along with other items that come up through the year. That is why we work hard to get you as owners to get involved in the annual meetings and the Upper Midwest Conventions.

You might think all we do is party at the annual meeting or the convenions but we are really working for you.

Now on to the Upper Midwest Convention & Trade Show. We have been invited to Waupaca WI by RPEP and Waupaca Mobile. The date is May 7 thru 9th. There are many interesting things in the works. We will be at the huge Expo Center. There is room for 75 booths and the big trucks will be able to be in the building. We will read more.

Senator Farrow was impressed by the organization of the operation and the resourcefulness of reusing as much as feasibly possible from the automobiles. The Senator was also sympathetic to the mounds of red tape the government puts our members through on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis. He made comments on the onerous retention pond regulations as well. Mike did a great job of educating Senator Farrow on the responsibilities of our organization and the Senator agreed read more.
