AIADA Automotive Congress May 18-19 in Washington, D.C.

November 22, 2010
International nameplate dealers will converge on Washington, D.C. May 18-19 for the American International Automobile Dealers Association's 27th annual Automotive Congress. Held each May in our nation's Capital, the Congress gathers dealers, dealership personnel and industry executives for the industry's largest legislative conference. Registration is $445 for AIADA-member dealers, and a spouse or guest is $150 more. Additional dealership employees are $250 each. To register, call 1-800-GO-AIADA. Activities are at the J.W. Marriott in Washington, D.C. Attendees receive up-to-the-minute briefings on top issues, then meet with their congressional representatives. "Meeting with your representatives in person, said AIADA Chairman Buzz Rodland, "is the only sure-fire way of getting their attention. But to really make an impact, to make our perspectives a top policy consideration, we cannot act alone. "The Automotive Congress puts us on the fast track to making our views known. We'll have the opportunity to let Congress know firsthand how trends like protectionism and policies like CAFE can adversely affect international auto dealers. "As we gear up for Decision 2004, this year's Automotive Congress promises to be exceptional." A May 18 reception also will honor the winner and finalists of the AIADA's 2004 Dealer of the Year Award, which recognizes dealers' exceptional community, customer and industry service.
