Become a Dealer Member of the Colorado Automobile Dealers Association

CADA membership provides vital support to Colorado’s automotive industry and offers a variety of benefits that are created specifically for CADA dealer members.

Dealer membership is offered to any person or corporation holding a new motor vehicle, powersports, or truck franchise agreement with a Colorado licensed motor vehicle manufacturer. Membership benefits are provided in the name of the dealership’s authorized representative (usually the dealer operator/general manager).

CADA Dealer Member Benefits

Dealer members benefit from CADA’s legislative, regulatory and advocacy efforts on their behalf, along with reduced prices on products and services, ongoing educational services and regular updates on industry affairs through a variety of association publications.

Dues are based on the dealership’s new vehicle sales and leases for the previous year.
