Oregon dealer Tonkin elected 2010 chairman of NADA

November 15, 2010

Ed Tonkin of Portland has been elected the 2010 chairman of the National Automobile Dealers Association. Utah dealer Stephen Wade is the new vice chairman. Both officers assume their positions at the next NADA convention, Feb. 13-15 in Orlando, Fla.

"It’s humbling to be elected by your peers to such an important position," says Tonkin. "It’s an honor." He said his law degree will help him lead the association through myriad legislative and regulatory challenges in 2010.

Tonkin’s father, Ron Tonkin, was NADA chairman in 1989.
