Host a Member of Congress at Your Dealership

Sen. Grassley speaks at Quad City Peterbilt
U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) meets with representatives of Quad City Peterbilt in March 2019

Most Senators and Representatives are not familiar with how an auto dealership works. When members of Congress learn about your business, they become better informed about how their actions affect your ability to grow your business. Congressional dealership visits are an excellent starting point for building long-term relationships with members of Congress. Building these relationships is critical to helping dealers achieve their legislative goals.

Q:  If I am not sure about NADA's current policy positions, can I still host a member of Congress at my dealership?

A:  Yes. The foremost issue that any member of Congress cares about is jobs in his or her district. All you need to do is show the wide variety of people you employ and how you create economic opportunity in your town.

Q:  Is it easy to host a member of Congress without making any major preparations?

A:  Yes. This can be as informal as you wish. It can be as simple as having the congressman stop by, talk to a few employees and see your operations.  

Q:  What is the best time to host a Member of Congress?

A:  Congressional recesses happen throughout the year. Contact Patrick Calpin at 202.547.5500 or to discuss when the next recess will occur and to coordinate scheduling.
