SMCDA’s purpose is to politically represent franchised new car dealers; to inform, update and educate new car dealers, their employees and community; and to promote the retail automotive industry.
Although SMCDA is a totally independent organization; it maintains close communications with the National Automobile Dealers Association, the California Motor Car Dealers Association and other metro car dealer associations.
The SMCDA offers associate membership to companies and vendors doing business with dealers and dealerships. Associate members receive bulletins, can participate in the annual scholarship golf tournament, attend important seminars and classes relating to the automotive industry, and receive a yearly updated Dealer Directory, listing each Associate Member.
The SMCDA assists and monitors local, state and federal legislative activity with our state and national associations. SMCDA’s representation insures that information is relayed to dealers members regarding the out-come of important issues, and the reviewing of new laws under consideration that affect new car dealers.
As the need arises, both dealers and associate members are invited to attend meetings in an open forum concerning dealer issues such as environmental awareness, product knowledge and requested subject matter.
