What you need to know in charity car wash season
Canadian Carwash Association
It's now that time of year when charities and other community groups look to raise awareness for their cause through the time-honoured tradition of a charity carwash. With a better understanding about the environmental impact of car washing outside of a professional carwash, more and more municipalities and charity groups are combining their efforts with professional carwashes. The CCA has put together a series of flowcharts and background information to help educate carwash owners and operators on what they need to know when it comes to the charity carwash season.

New Director joins Canadian Carwash Association Board of Directors
Canadian Carwash Association
Christal Narday may be new to the Canadian Carwash Association (CCA) Board of Directors, but she certainly is not new to the carwash industry. In fact, you could say she was grandfathered in to it, so to speak. Christal brings years of experience to the CCA National Board after seeing firsthand how professional carwashes operate by working with her father and grandfather. She started out as cashier at one of their sites and over the years held different roles, such as supervisor, assistant manager and site manager. She studied Business Administration at Humber College prior to working full-time in the carwash industry.

While serving on the Board, Christal looks forward to learning new perspectives about the industry and offers her expertise in express detailing, which is her carwash's speciality. Christal was appointed to the CCA Board of Directors on March 11, 2015 at the CCA Annual General Meeting in Toronto. "I love how in this industry every day is a new and different experience. I look forward to working with everyone on the CCA Board," said Narday.
