NFDA’s bi-annual survey, the Dealer Attitude Survey (DAS), is now live! The DAS is the NFDA’s longest standing survey, dating back to 1989 and is constantly growing in importance and size. The latest edition in September, received a response rate of 66% (2,561 responses) and we are determined to achieve higher this time around, capturing a broader understanding of perceptions and relationships between dealer and manufacturer.

Next Tuesday, NFDA will be hosting a Parliamentary Dinner at the House of Lords. This presents the opportunity for NFDA to meet with MPs and Lords to discuss the significance and size of our industry and examine some of the pertinent issues facing the automotive retail sector. We will be sending a full briefing on topics covered at the dinner shortly afterwards.

Finally, we have launched registrations for NFDA’s next round of regional meetings. At your nearest regional meeting you will obtain an update on the latest trends facing the sector and an overview of what the NFDA is doing to support you, you will also have the chance to discuss any issues you would like your trade association to assist with. Regional meeting dates can be found in this edition of NFDA news, including a registration link to follow.
