The Council of Automotive Repair envisions:
ATTENTION: AAA-Mid-Atlantic Approved Repair Facilities -
WMDA/CAR is taking a stand on the new requirements to participate in the program.
To AAA Mid-Atlantic Approved Repair Facilities:
My name is Billy Hillmuth, and I am a member of the Council of Automotive Repair - a division of WMDA (Washington, Maryland, Delaware Service Station and Auto Repair Association). I am sharing the information below for your benefit, to explain to you what AAA Mid Atlantic has planned for those of us who are in the program. We met with AAA Mid Atlantic officials months ago.(attached is a summary of that meeting).
My shop, Hillmuth Certified Automotive, has been an AAA approved auto repair shop for many years. Hillmuth Auto has had a long relationship with AAA Mid Atlantic. However, recently AAA Mid Atlantic has asked for our greatest asset - our database. AAA wants all approved repair facilities to use their CRM (customer retention marketing) program. Hillmuth will not participate in any program which requires us to share our database. These are our clients.
If you chose not to join their program, you will no longer be an AAA approved repair facility. Keep in mind, AAA Mid Atlantic now owns and operates repair shops in Maryland and Delaware. Is this a conflict of interest?
