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.

Current SCWA Members are receiving regular email updates and opportunities for educational webinars.
