The International Carwash Association is now accepting applications for the 2020 Car Wash Executive Management Institute, a program designed in cooperation with the University of Notre Dame to inspire and grow car wash professionals.

This five-day program is a unique chance for operators — whether owners or managers — to expand their knowledge. Applications will be accepted through May 1, but participation is limited to 35 individuals.

Taught by Notre Dame’s executive education faculty, the program is an immersive week of strategic business, financial, and leadership training. The limited class size allows for connecting and learning in an intimate setting while building a life-long network of like-minded car wash professionals.

The program is designed for leaders in car wash retail organizations with at least five years of on-the-job experience who wish to supplement their professional expertise with a formalized curriculum. This might include owners, executives, as well as regional, district, and site managers. Participants will receive an official certificate from the University of Notre Dame for successfully completing the program.
