Finally, a reminder that the next round of NFDA regional dealer forums are taking place during September around the country. These meetings give members the opportunity to discuss common industry issues with like-minded dealers from a range of franchises. They also give the members the opportunity to hear first-hand what your trade association is doing on your behalf. Topics for discussion will include the Dealer Attitude Survey, WLTP, multi-user vehicles and the current and future state of the market. For more information on the meetings please contact

NFDA is your trade association: we represent, you benefit. If you need any assistance, please contact us on the member helpline 01788 538303.
