Presidents's Desk
Howdy and happy spring! The winter hasn’t been too harsh but it’s still nice to see the days get longer, to smell the grass growing, to hear the happy birdsong drifting through the air. Of course, it’s also nice that we can grill out now without our long johns on too!

As per usual we are working hard to keep CARS working for you.

The Warranty program is working better than ever. If you are interested in offering extended warranties on the parts you sell, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Warranty Board of Directors or Dean Bellin. They can get you set up in no time. Dean Bellin and I recently attended the annual NFIB (National Federation of Independent Business) Business Day in Madison on behalf of CARS. It was a very interesting event with a stellar lineup of speakers including; KT McFarland, Ed Goeas, Brad Schimel, and topped off by John Stossel at the end of the day. During our lunch we had the privilege of hearing the new head coach for the UW Badgers football team, Paul Chryst, and the highlight was having the honor of hearing Governor Scott Walker. It was a day of networking and getting a feel for the political atmosphere for the future of business. I would highly recommend this event for anyone interested in attending, whether you are a member of NFIB or not. You can find more information on state NFIB events and happenings at read more.

From the Secretary’s Desk
I have just returned from the ARA As most of you know, CARS of WI lifetime member Bob Hoffman passed away last October. Bob was a huge contributor to the development and success of CARS and helped the association become, and stay, the success it is today. His selfless contributions and his contagious smile will be greatly missed but his memory and legacy will live on within CARS. To honor that legacy, CARS has set up a scholarship fund in his name.

We have begun organizing an event that we hope will become a yearly tradition, The Bob Hoffman Memorial Golf Outing. This year it is planned for July 11th in Eau Claire, WI at the Mill Run Golf Course. Some highlights of the event; a Dixon Challenge with prizes for closest to the pin, and a Hole In-One contest also sponsored by DIXON GOLF, makers of ECO-FRIENDLY golf balls. There will be other prizes and raffles throughout the day. Ways that you can help other than golfing are doing a hole sponsorship for $100 per hole, donating raffle prizes and volunteering to help out at the event. We hope you will join us. More information can be found in this newsletter on page 9. Read more.
