THE PERFORMANCE WAREHOUSE ASSOCIATION
The private sector continues to be under attack by consumer groups, governmental agencies, and labor pressures that make it impossible for an individual, engaged in private enterprise, to defend themselves against all of these highly organized groups alone. Therefore, your best chance for survival depends on grouping yourself with others of similar needs. The Performance Warehouse Association (PWA) is your answer.
PWA is an organization of specialty automotive parts distributors joined together to deal with management, financial and legislative matters. This description is only a brief overview and as you continue to review our website, it will become evident that much more is accomplished through participation in PWA.
A Board of Directors governs PWA. The officers and directors act on behalf of the members and a President who oversees the association is appointed by the Board. Directors are elected to a two-year term by the distributor (active) membership, which represent the United States, Canada and International. The Chairman, Chairman-Elect and Treasurer are also elected by the active membership to a two-year term.
Founded in 1971, PWA today leads the industry in jobber/retailer support programs. Thousands of high performance retailers support our very successful Performance Automotive Retailer (PAR) program. The Dealer Locator, Stay Connected Information Center (SCIC) and The Performance Warehouse Association University (PWAU) programs have been developed to help the Jobber / Retailer .
