The Ohio Auto and Truck Association (OATRA) is the only means by which our voice, as a group can be heard in the Ohio House and Senate. This Association was formed for that specific reason. Without representation, laws directly affecting our industry would be passed without the interest of the auto and truck recyclers in mind. There are approximately 670 licensed salvage dealers in the state of Ohio, which is about 12% of automotive recyclers in the United States. There is strength in numbers, and to continue our legislative representation, we need your participation.
Additional benefits include cost saving programs designed specifically for OATRA members. These programs include an package which can save members thousands, sometimes tens of thousands of dollars in premiums per year, a telecommunications package containing discounted long distance rates, and a money-saving workmen's compensation group offering extremely competitive rates.
Each year, the association brings members and advertisers together at the annual convention and trade show. This provides the opportunity to share ideas among members and experience the latest products and services available from our trade show participants. The information obtained and business relations formed from this weekend gathering often becomes the greatest benefit of all.
OATRA is the only state association which: 1.) lobbies government on your behalf and helps you with regulatory compliance; 2.) builds productivity, profitability and effectiveness in your operations; 3.) saves you money through practical programs designed members; 4.) creates opportunities and environments for you to make industry contacts; and 5.) provides essential communication and information links.
Become a member and help set the standards for the Ohio recyclers and experience the and peace of mind of being an OATRA member. Do your part to guarantee the stability of our industry for the future and for the stability of your business today!
