NADA PAC Presidents Club
The Presidents Club NADA PAC Dinner, which includes recognition of the Washington State Time Dealer of the Year and new National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation Ambassadors takes place in the fall in Seattle.
Washington State’s franchised new car and truck dealers get involved in the nation’s political process through the NADA PAC, the political arm of the National Automobile Dealers Association. NADA PAC helps elect individuals who understand the needs of new car and truck dealers by contributing to those federal candidates who listen to the concerns and carefully weigh the costs of proposed laws and regulations against their purported benefits. NADA PAC is bi-partisan and contributes to pro-dealer House and Senate candidates of both parties.
As a past WSADA Board Member and past chairman of the American International Automobile Dealers Association, Buzz Rodland, Rodland Toyota, Everett, understands the importance of grassroots lobbying at both the state and national level. “Giving to NADA PAC ought to be considered by dealers like buying insurance for their businesses,” Buzz said. “Giving at the President’s level means you recognize how important it is that doors are always open to ensure WSADA’s voice is heard.”
