Women working within the carwashing industry are becoming the norm

Women working within the carwashing industry are becoming the norm and no longer an anomaly.

This is a good thing. Women can be more organized, more able to multi-task, deal with many age groups of employees, all without breaking a sweat.

Don’t miss the 2021 Women in Carwash Conference

The third Women in Carwash conference is scheduled for January 18-20, 2021 at the B Ocean Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and anyone who is involved with or working in the carwash industry will want to be there.

Conference organizers are so excited about the upcoming event, they are running a contest, sponsored by Transchem Group, that will see one woman win an expense-paid trip for two that includes flights, hotel and two full conference passes. To have a chance to win this great prize, visit the website www.womenincarwash.com, fill in the entry form and submit an essay that talks about your story within the industry.

“The third Women in Carwash conference will be an exciting event that brings together women, (and men), from across North America to engage and learn from not only our great speaker lineup but also from each other,” says conference organizer Brenda Jane Johnstone. “Registrants gather to exchange ideas, share experiences and learn. We can’t wait to see everyone in January!”

Attendees will also have a chance to meet and mingle during networking events, a cocktail reception and dinner as well as being able to fit in some free time to enjoy the beautiful Florida resort.

While this conference is geared towards celebrating how women are emerging as some of the most forward-thinking leaders in the carwash industry, the information that will come out of the conference will be of interest to men in the industry as well and organizers say men shouldn’t be shy about attending.

Zak Hemphill of Zips Car Wash attended the second Women in Carwash conference, in Arlington, Texas, and was not deterred by the event’s name.

“I would encourage other men in the industry to not be intimidated to experience something like this and to seek to be involved in taking part in altering where we are as an industry” Hemphill said after the 2020 conference. “The focus on the challenges that women face in not only our industry but any industry is always great to talk about and seek solutions for.”
