WASHINGTON — The Auto Care Association (ACA) and Automotive Aftermarket Suppliers Association (AASA) have agreed to work together to help educate industry members and consumers about the fight for access to vehicle data.
The two trade groups have formed a strategic partnership carry out their mission, which debuted Sept. 18 under a "Your Car, Your Data, Your Choice" campaign.
ACA President and CEO Bill Hanvey, AASA President Paul McCarthy and Bill Long, president and CEO of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA), announced the groups' partnership at ACA's Fall Leadership Days/Auto Care Legislative Summit in Washington.
The AASA is a community of MEMA.
"Your Car, Your Data, Your Choice" is an education initiative created to engage motorists, policy makers and other stakeholders alike, the ACA said, on what vehicle data is, why it matters and why it is crucial for car owners to control it.
