There had never been a storm in Texas like Hurricane Harvey and there had never been a rapid relief effort like the one NADA put in place just days after landfall, especially the NADA Foundation’s Emergency Relief Fund, according to Bill Wolters, president of the Texas Automobile Dealers Association.

Wolters joined NADA Foundation Chairman Annette Sykora and NADA’s Jonathan Collegio on the Live Stage at NADA Show 2018 in Las Vegas to discuss the Foundation’s unprecedented year of relief and the rollout of a new education and workforce initiative.

Wolter told the Live Stage audience about how NADA and the Foundation got the word out and brought the dealership community together to help those in need in the days after the storm. “Only you could have brought together my fellow colleagues among the ATAEs and the dealerships and immediately put money in the hands of dealership employees who needed it,” said Wolters.
