Building a successful business means having the courage to dream big.
During our 2019 VADA Family Convention, that was the cornerstone of our featured session with Amelia Rose Earhart, who is the youngest person to have flown around the world in a single-engine aircraft. Other keynote sessions provided tactical tools and strategies for running a competitive dealership in today’s changing marketplace, including motivating your employees and taking advantage of emerging technology for both dealers and consumers. If you missed or want to review a convention session, check out our speakers’ presentations or websites:

You also can relive some key moments with our 2019 convention photo album including our 1920s-style opening dinner and the closing buffet with its “Alice in Wonderland” theme. We’re impressed with the creativity our members brought to those special events. You can even download your favorite photos and share on social media!
Thank you to our sponsors.
Presenting a meaningful program with leading speakers and creating ways for members to network takes a lot of work. Our VADA team recognizes that we can’t do that without the generous support of our sponsors. Thank you to each and every sponsor.
