Dear Colleague,

NFDA members should have now completed the Summer 2019 Dealer Attitude Survey questionnaire. Please note the deadline is Sunday 4 August. The Dealer Attitude Survey is a vital tool for NFDA in our discussions with manufacturers to continue to best represent your interests and raise any issues affecting your business. Your feedback is key.

This week, we shared the monthly Drive My Career report with our members. Positively, the number of young people driven by Drive My Career to member retailers’ career pages continues to grow. Nearly 7,000 relevant, potential job candidates have been redirected over the past three months. Over the next weeks, we will be running a new campaign to raise awareness of the different jobs available in the automotive industry. For more information about Drive My Career, please email

Our Parliamentary Engagement Programme continues. On Monday, Jim Cunningham MP visited Johnsons Hyundai in Coventry. Please find more details below and contact us if you are interested in hosting your local MP.

Last week, it was sad to hear about the passing of Sir Michael Marshall, Marshall Motor Group honorary life president. Our thoughts and sincere condolences are with his family, friends and former colleagues.

NFDA is your trade association: we represent, you benefit. If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our member helpline on 01788 538303.
