Information is power. Over the years, the Automotive Trade Association Executives (ATAE) has proven to be a crucial asset for NADA and all of our dealer members across the country. The franchised retail automotive industry is facing many challenges and it is vital that we share information and work collaboratively to defend and extend the dealers’ investment in the franchise system.
Individually, we each work diligently for the members in our State or region. But the sum of our parts is far greater than the whole. When more than 115 organizations, representing more than 15,000 dealerships, speak with a single voice, elected officials and other opinion leaders listen.
This ATAE website contains a great deal of helpful information. But your input is essential if it is to continue addressing the ever-changing needs of our industry. When you have suggestions or comments, please contact the ATAE staff. We look forward to hearing from you.
James B. Appleton, ATAE Chairman
President, New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers
