Dues/Invoices

ATD's annual dues in 2020 range from $515 to $1030, based on the prior-calendar-year new-vehicle sales of the dealership. For organizations owning two or more dealerships, dues for the largest volume outlet are determined by its prior-calendar-year new-vehicle sales volume; each other dealership, referred to as an Affiliate, pays a discounted flat rate of $410.

Sales Volume 2020 Dues Rates
1 to 99 $515 per year
100 to 199 $775 per year
200 plus $1030 per year
Affiliate truck dealerships $410 per year

NADA mails dues invoices a few months prior to the expiration of the term of membership. The invoice includes a request for a voluntary contribution to the NADA Foundation. In some areas, state, metropolitan or dealer advertising associations collect dues on behalf of NADA.
