Nominations sought for NADA director of Metro Chicago

November 23, 2010

Ballots to nominate a new NADA director to represent Metropolitan Chicago were mailed Sept. 20 to NADAmember dealers in Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties. Completed ballots must be returned and postmarked by Oct. 11. Art Kelly, who has held the post since 1996, will resign effective Feb. 3, 2003, at the next NADA annual convention. His successor will serve the remaining two years of Kelly's term.

Full terms last three years. Eligible nominees must be an NADA member in good standing; must have an equity interest in the dealership he/she represents; must be the manufacturer/distributor-recognized Dealer/General Manager/Executive Manager of the dealership; must be actively engaged in the dealership's management; and must have his/her principal dealership in the state or metropolitan region he/she represents. To qualify as a nominee, a candidate must appear on at least 10 percent of the nominating ballots cast. If none receive that minimum, further nominations will be sought. If the nominating process qualifies a single dealer, that dealer would be declared elected without further balloting. If two or more nominees qualify, election ballots would be mailed Nov. 1 by the NADA.
