SCWA Announces 2021 Convention Date Change to June 9-11, 2021
- The Southwest Car Wash Association announced the SCWA Board of Directors voted to move the 2021 SCWA Convention & Car Wash EXPO to June 9-11, 2021 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.
- This decision to move the dates from February 17-19 was made after careful consideration of the current COVID situation and evaluating the factors that will exist over the next 60-90 days. The SCWA Board believes that getting through the winter months; the flu season; and rollout of the vaccine; will provide a safer and larger attended event for everyone to enjoy. See you in June!

TO OUR SCWA MEMBERS
The COVID 19 pandemic has created a difficult time for everyone. It is times like this, the support of your association is needed more than ever.
As the situation began, SCWA immediately went to work for our members and the industry to provide needed information and to educate public officials on the “essential business” nature of car washing. SCWA is continuing to identify resources that will help members and the greater car wash community rebound stronger than ever. Current SCWA Members are receiving regular email updates and opportunities for educational webinars.

We appreciate the many great responses from our members during this time - here are a few:
"I wanted to commend you for your efforts in aggressively protecting the rights of the members of the Southwest Car Wash Association to operate their businesses. No other association has provided this kind of direct benefit. Saving thousands of jobs will have an incalculable impact on thousands of lives and families. This just shows how truly valuable you are to each and every member of the association and the car wash industry as a whole."
