Joining Forces with Industry Leaders, Driving Innovation and Opportunities for You


The National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers

The National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers’ (NAMAD) objective is to pursue the meaningful presence and participation of minority businesses and diverse employees across all aspects of the automotive economic sector. We are committed to developing strategic relationships and advocating for the advancement of business policies and practices that ensure diversity and economic parity remain a priority in all aspects of the American automotive industry.

The National Independent Automobile Dealers Association

(NIADA), is among the nation’s largest trade associations representing the used motor vehicle industry comprised of more than 38,000 licensed used car dealers. Since 1946, NIADA has represented the voice and interests of used car dealers at the federal level in Washington, D.C.. Coupled with the state association network across the country, our grass-roots framework provides a dual layer of advocacy unmatched in the used motor vehicle industry. For 68 years, NIADA has engineered programs and leveraged technology to fulfill its mission to advance, educate and promote the independent, used car dealer. NIADA stands tall for its members who subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics of duty, honor and integrity and who believe in the advancement of small business in support of the free-market system. More information about NIADA programs and educational opportunities is available at www.niada.com, www.niada.tv and www.autoconsumer.tv

A panel of leading dealer principals, EFG executives and Northwood’s automotive program leaders will judge the business case competition in November.
