Member Services & Affiliates Committee

Networking Opportunities

The purpose of the Member Services & Affiliates Committee is to plan and implement membership recruitment and retention programs. This committee also assists with other projects as requested. The Committee assists with event planning, creating programs that promote using an Affiliate, and discuss industry related issues. Affiliates also have the opportunity to influence actions of the Board through participation as the elected Affiliate representative who serves on the Board of Directors. Committee members are some of the most active and seen ACAR members. They gain great exposure for their business through active participation in the association.
