Open seat ahead for local NADA director

May 3, 2019
Nominating ballots will mail May 17 to dealers in National Automobile Dealers Association districts whose representatives’ terms on the NADA board of directors expire next winter. Mark Scarpelli, who was first elected in 2010 to be the NADA’s Metro Chicago director, is not seeking re-election.
The NADA categorizes Metro Chicago as Cook, Lake (Illinois), and DuPage counties. Dealerships in the state’s other 99 counties are represented by Jamie Auffenberg Jr., president of St. Clair Auto Mall in downstate O’Fallon, Ill. Auffenberg’s current term expires in 2021.
Nominating ballots must be returned to the NADA by June 7. If one candidate appears on at least 10 percent of the ballots, that dealer will be declared winner. If more than one dealer appears on 10 percent of the ballots — or if none does — a second nominating round would be held this summer.
Scarpelli, principal of Raymond Chevrolet and Kia in Antioch, was the NADA board chairman in 2017, that association’s centennial year. He also was the 2008-2009 chairman of the CATA board.
