CADA and NADA: supporting international events and issues
January 25, 2021
Through the years, CADA has often worked with its American counterparts, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), on a variety of issues. These include international events and government relations issues, which have demonstrated the important relationship and support offered by both associations.
“NADA has been supportive on a number of issues important to the CADA, and we have likewise shown our support on international issues and by participating in events,” said Tim Ryan, Vice President and Director Industry Relations & General Counsel at CADA.
The NADA was a supporter of having the Trump administration lift the steel and aluminum tariffs it imposed on Canada in 2020, and when the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) discussions were underway.
Canadian dealers and CADA staff also regularly attend NADA’s annual convention (or as it is called, the NADA Show), although this year with the COVID-19 crisis that attendance will happen virtually from February 9-11, 2021.
The NADA Show offers dealers an opportunity to connect with fellow dealers internationally — as well as managers, exhibitors, automakers, and certain industry partners. The event will include more than 60 workshops, a virtual expo, and international networking.
