SACRAMENTO — The California Tire Dealers Association (CTDA) recently held a pair of meetings in the San Francisco Bay area, discussing topics such as tax, business and retirement strategies.
Westpac Wealth Partners and TireTutor Inc. representatives spoke at the events — one was held in Sacramento the second was held in Pleasanton.
TireTutor previewed its soon-to-be-launched CTDA members-only online consumer marketplace.
CTDA executive director Marc Connerly said the group enjoyed "Westpac's suggestions on the preparation of a business prior to sale"
CTDA President Chris Barry said TireTutor's consumer marketplace "will one day become the best reason for being a CTDA member. The website has the potential to be what Expedia is to the travel industry."
CTDA's next area meeting will be in Southern California at Turbo Wholesale Tires in Irwindale on Dec. 13.
The CTDA represents independent tire dealers, wholesale tire distributors and tire industry vendors throughout California. Meetings are free to attend and include dinner.
