American Truck Dealers (ATD): The ATD division of NADA provides programs and services to medium- and heavy-duty truck dealers, which have specific needs and encounter unique issues among the association's membership.

Automotive Career Resources: A place where students, new graduates or career-changers can learn about careers at auto and truck dealerships. Dealers can learn about hosting career events for potential new employees, by offering a "behind-the-scenes" tour of the dealership to show how the business works in all areas of its operation.

Americans Well-informed on Automobile Retailing Economics (AWARE): This Web site was launched by AWARE to help consumers navigate the vehicle financing process.

Century Award: From blacksmiths and carriage makers to bicycle-shop owners and wagon builders, many of America’s new car dealers have been in the transportation business for more than 100 years. NADA honors those dedicated dealers with the NADA Century Award.
