Revving Up Reform

Real change is brought about by face-to-face discussions, something we did a record of at this year’s Policy Conference.






PAC Dollars Raised

Top 5 Highlights

1. Being A Voice On Capitol Hill

Members held more than 100 meetings with lawmakers and their staff, bringing attention to legislation on catalytic converter thefts, Right to Repair and the Federal Trade Commission’s Vehicle Shopping Rule.

“It was a great day. Everyone was very receptive, especially the representatives we talked to,” said Scott Shook of Shook Auto in New Philadelphia, Ohio.

2. Making Connections

In a private event at the Capitol Club sponsored by Passtime and Buckeye Dealership Consulting, dealers had a chance to meet U.S. senators Mike Lee, John Thune, Ted Budd, Mike Rounds, John Boozman, Mark Mullin and Dan Sullivan.

“It’s important to hear from you and to hear your input,” Thune said. “We get tons of calls, texts, emails… Nothing replaces face to face,” added Mike Lee.

3. Spreading Knowledge

Members met face-to-face with representatives from Federal Trade Commission, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, asking about rules and regulations from the agencies on marketing, finance and titling.

4. Supporting The PAC

The NIADA PAC Cup was captured by Region II, as the dealers in the region raised and donated $43,350.

In all, the four regions combined to add $100,950 to the NIADA PAC’s fund during the spirited dinner. 

The NIADA PAC supports candidates who understand issues facing independent automobile dealers in our nation’s capital.

“Our voice keeps the association going,” said Stan Norton, the chairman of the NIADA PAC.

5. Moving Forward

Through the three days in Washington, D.C., dealers had the opportunity to network and discuss how to move the industry forward in the face of increasing regulation. 

“It was great to see the process. It’s extremely important for our regulators and policymakers to hear from us. They need information to make decisions,” said Matt Nibarger of Prime Auto USA in Jackson, Tenn.
