Survey asks member dealers to rate CATA

November 18, 2010

Dealer principals were solicited March 23 for their opinions on the various services provided by the Chicago Automobile Trade Association, and for suggestions on other services the CATA should provide. Please complete the survey by April 14 so the association staff can compile the results. 

The online survey was disseminated via e-mail addresses the association has gathered. Important, the CATA holds the addresses in strict confidence and does not share or sell them; the addresses are used only to send informational messages to members.


The latest survey builds on the previous query about CATA activities, administered in 2002. Dealers then generally rated the association favorably and suggested a range of projects for the association to concern itself. 

The new survey also gives respondents ample opportunity to add comments on CATA affairs—the Chicago Auto Show, DriveChicago, the CATA’s general counsel and employee relations counsel, the association’s lobbying activities, education and training classes, and more.


"While we hope to use the results of this survey to learn how to be a better association to our members," said CATA Chairman Terry D’Arcy, "we hope it serves as an informational tool, as well, to highlight a benefit that perhaps (dealers) didn’t know was available from the CATA."
