About The VIADA
The Virginia Independent Automobile Dealers Association was officially organized and incorporated in 1960 and traces its beginning back some 15 years prior to a group of Norfolk dealers who formed a local association for the purpose of fighting unfair laws and regulations.
VIADA is a 501(c)(6) tax exempt trade association affiliated with the National Independent Automobile Dealers Association.
Our mission is to inform, educate, and represent motor vehicle dealers in all forums, and to work in cooperation with other organizations to make the Commonwealth of Virginia a safer community for all. This mission is fulfilled through meetings of our eight districts, bimonthly magazine, various other publications, workshops and most importantly our “800 Dealer Hot Line”.
Of primary importance is our presence in Richmond. Both regulators and legislators recognize VIADA as the voice of the independent dealers. As a result, we are advised and consulted before any measure affecting dealers is considered. The Association employs a lobbyist who works with our Legislative Committee which is made up of independent dealers throughout the state.
The Association employs an Executive Director to execute policies set by the Board of Directors as well as direct the day-to-day activities. VIADA has six employees, all of whom are pleased to serve your needs.
As a service to its members and an additional source of revenue, the Association maintains an inventory of specialized business forms and other supplies, and has a market for business and personal lines of insurance in addition to other member benefits. VIADA also produces regional workshops and an Annual Convention and Expo.
VIADA has maintained a relatively steady growth in membership and member programs over the years. Future plans call for this to continue, for the more complex the business becomes the more an actively involved trade association is needed.
