Dear Fellow Dealers,
It’s on again – and it’s yours…
The annual AADA National Dealer Convention provides Australian franchised automotive dealers with a once-a-year chance to gather and discuss the key challenges and opportunities likely to impact the future of our industry. It’s also one of the few windows you will have to network with local and international industry figures and share best practice with dealers from outside your regular franchise groups.
The Australian Automotive Dealer Association provides professional, energetic advocacy on behalf of all franchised automotive dealers across a diverse agenda of issues relevant to our businesses. AADA negotiates with legislators, government regulators and manufacturers on important policy issues like taxation, competition regulation, consumer law, compliance legislation and myriad other areas.
Our AADA National Dealer Convention theme this year is…
Better outcomes flow from better processes –processes that are consistent, managed, focused and results driven. The best businesses embed world class processes with their teams by regularly asking…
“…what does good look like…and how can we be better this year than last…”
A sure-fire pathway to superior results is to study what the best and most successful practitioners do – and then copy with pride.
Every year, the AADA National Dealer Convention brings together international industry leaders and experts in their fields to arm you with the tools and materials that will help you build those better outcomes.
The Trade Expo brings you new products, new training methodology, and new approaches to sales and customer service success. This year’s Trade Expo is the biggest and best yet. For the first time, the entire Convention will be held within the Expo for ease of logistics and to maximise your exposure to the brilliant new products and services on display.
The Convention also serves as the venue for the AADA Annual General Meeting. It is vital that you attend the AGM and play your important role in the statutory life of your association. Convention staff will be in touch over the next few weeks to ensure you receive the AGM notice and that we have the correct current dealer information in our database. Please expect the call and help us to ensure we are communicating effectively.
Given the challenges and risks our businesses face now and in the future, no dealer can afford not to take the modest amount of time and make the modest investment needed to attend the Convention. Jack Welch, the amazing CEO who built GE into the powerhouse it is today believed that…
…if the rate of change in the environment outside a business becomes faster than the rate of change on the inside of that business, then the end is nigh…
Does anyone in the retail end of the automotive business really believe the rate of change is slowing? Grab this opportunity to get up to speed!
We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 AADA National Convention.
