Automotive Recyclers Defense Fund

Make a Difference in the Automotive Recycling Industry

Donate Today!

Just as many of our members' businesses have branched out further to obtain inventory for business operations, ARA must expand its influence to unlock closed doors of opportunity and invest in new outreach.  In order to support operations at a higher level and address the serious challenges facing the professional automotive recycling industry, we need everyone's support!  An investment in the Automotive Recyclers Defense Fund will make a difference in our industry's future.

An investment in the 2015 Defense Fund will support several specific initiatives, including:

  • Securing an online auction platform to pursue vehicle acquisition opportunities with insurance companies, wholesalers, fleets, franchise dealers, and others;
  • Enhanced legislative tracking capabilities in the states to ensure that ARA members are receiving the most up-to-date information about bills impacting our businesses, such as those addressing ELV purchases, total loss definitions, counterfeit airbags, scrap metal, and state licensing requirements;
  • Enhanced resources for affiliated chapter organizations, including educational sessions and website development;
  • Retention of expert staff with crucial skills, knowledge and broad-based network of contacts to carry our message to the right people at the right time;
  • New marketing initiatives to counter misinformation campaigns about recycled OEM parts; and
  • Active involvement in industry-related groups and coalitions to expand opportunities to educate stakeholders about automotive recycling and build relationships that support ARA efforts to ensure a fair and competitive marketplace for its members.
