Scarpelli to seek re-election to NADA board of directors

April 22, 2016
Nominating ballots mailed this month to dealers in National Automobile Dealers Association districts whose representatives' terms on the NADA board of directors expire next winter. Mark Scarpelli, who has served as the NADA’s Metro Chicago director since 2010, is seeking re-election.
The NADA categorizes Metro Chicago as Cook, Lake and DuPage counties. 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 2018.
Nominating ballots must be returned to the NADA by May 27. 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, currently is vice chairman of the NADA board. If he wins election, Scarpelli likely would ascend to chairman of the association in 2017, the NADA’s centennial year.
A past chairman of the CATA, Scarpelli is a de facto member of all NADA board committees. He previously was chairman of the following NADA committees: Convention; Dealership Operations; Industry Relations; Public Affairs; and Regulatory Affairs.
