President’s Message – Driving Positive Change and Prosperity

Dear GLANCDA members,

I hope this message finds you well. As we continue to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of the automotive industry, I’m excited to share some important updates and upcoming events with you:

  1. Our annual member luncheon is fast approaching, scheduled to take place at the Universal Sheraton on March 27. We have a fantastic lineup planned, including an inspirational keynote address by Father Greg Boyle of Homeboy Industries, as well as a roundtable discussion led by industry experts on the most pressing topics facing our members. Additionally, we will be honoring LA CarGuy Mike Sullivan with the GLANCDA lifetime service award — a well-deserved recognition for his contributions to our community.
  2. Advocating for our dealers remains a top priority for GLANCDA. We continue to engage with elected officials at both the state and federal levels, championing the issues that matter most to our members. Whether it’s supporting favorable legislation or opposing measures that could adversely affect our industry, we are committed to being a strong voice for our community.

GLANCDA remains committed to addressing the shortage of service technicians through our workforce development initiatives. On March 12, we hosted a job fair and career information event at the Glendale Civic Auditorium, specifically tailored for area high school and community college auto tech students. Furthermore, we held the anticipated high school auto tech competition, with the written portion kicked off at Longo Lexus on March 16. These efforts are crucial in nurturing the next generation of automotive professionals.

I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to all our members who faithfully support GLANCDA through their membership dues. Your contributions enable us to provide valuable resources, networking opportunities and advocacy efforts on behalf of the automotive industry. To those who have not yet joined us, I encourage you to reach out and learn more about the benefits of membership. Together, we can continue to drive positive change and prosperity within our industry.

Thank you for your continued support.


Howard Tenenbaum
GLANCDA President
