Presenters: Patrick Calpin

Over the past two years, the government has become more involved in your business than ever before. Whether it’s the pandemic, the Paycheck Protection Program, comprehensive tax reform, promoting the sale of electric vehicles or changes to state vehicle franchise laws, unlike in Vegas, what happens in Washington doesn’t stay in Washington. Hear highlights of the latest legislative issues on Capitol Hill and learn what they mean for franchised auto dealers. And, learn the importance of dealer engagement, including how to host a lawmaker at your dealership, and getting involved in NADA’s initiatives for younger dealer executives and managers.
