AIADA's Dealer Visit Program

Make an Impact: Invite Your Legislators to you Dealership or Host a Virtual Meeting

The Dealer Visit Program allows dealers to jumpstart vital one-on-one relationships with their Members of Congress. Dealers can get to know their legislators in person by hosting them at their dealership for a one-hour meeting that includes a question and answer session with employees and a tour of the store.
