Join State and Metro Dealer Associations
NADA encourages vendors to develop "face-to-face" relationships with dealers, which is why NADA does not have a membership category for product/service vendors. Note that many state and metro associations do offer associate memberships. A list of these
local associations is
NADA does not rent nor sell its mailing lists in part or whole. Please contact a list broker of your choice as many commercial sources provide similar information.
The association approves endorsement or affinity marketing relationships with carefully selected, qualified vendors. The primary purpose of any endorsement is to provide services or products at prices not otherwise available to members, in order to reinforce acquisition and retention of members.
Endorsement proposals are evaluated on several criteria, including product/service type, scope, reputation and financial soundness. Other considerations include:
- Benefits to members and to the association;
- Relationships with other dealer associations;
- Cost recovery, legal liability and control of marketing; and
- Pricing and product/service delivery.
Companies are encouraged to address these subjects when submitting proposals. All proposals receive business and legal review before consideration by the association's board of directors. The decision process may take from three to six months, depending on circumstances.
