Colorado Auto Dealers Association Committees and Groups

At the Colorado Automobile Dealers Association (CADA), our committees and groups are dedicated to serving our members and addressing their needs. From influencing legislative policies to enhancing member services, these committees play a vital role in supporting our industry. Explore the following committees and groups to learn more.

Legislative Policy Committee

The Legislative Policy Committee (LPC) identifies and prioritizes legislative issues that could enhance or negatively affect dealer interests. The LPC evaluates and discusses each issue, then establishes policy and legislative recommendations to the CADA Board for approval.

The LPC is composed of CADA member dealers who are interested and willing to actively lead and participate at the Colorado state capitol to personally discuss issues of concern with their legislators. Committee members actively develop relationships with state legislators and other state-elected leaders. Together with the CADA lobbying team, the LPC promotes our legislative policies as constituents AND industry leaders.

Member Services Committee

The Member Services Committee (MSC) helps to vet service providers who have joined CADA as allied members and have established a track record of collaborative success and who now wish to pursue an endorsement in their respective field. The MSC interviews applicants and decides which proposal best benefits the dealer body and Association, respectively.

Once the MSC endorses a provider, CADA will not advocate on behalf of any other provider in that field. If an endorsement is not working in a beneficial manner to dealers and service providers, the MSC may elect to discontinue the endorsement.

From there, the eight- to 15-member committee makes recommendations to CADA staff and the Board of Directors and oversees that 10,000-foot-view of the event.
