Who We Are:
Maryland Automobile Dealers Association (MADA) is a statewide association of new car and truck dealers managed by a Board of Directors, which consists of members representing districts throughout the State. Individuals in related businesses are eligible and encouraged to join as associate members.
In 2010, MADA celebrated its 100th Anniversary. We are proud to have served Maryland dealers and our communties for over 100 years and look forward to entering a new century of service.
MADA was founded in 1910 as a non-profit trade association for the purpose of: “facilitating the exchange of ideas among its members; to encourage sound business policies; to foster constructive motor vehicle legislation; to discourage destructive motor vehicle legislation, and to promote confidence, respect and good fellowship among all who are directly or indirectly engaged in the motor vehicle industry.”
The Dealers’ Voice in Annapolis:
MADA has developed a strong working relationship with members of the Maryland General Assembly, the Motor Vehicle Administration, the Department of the Environment and numerous other state agencies.
Every year the Association analyzes hundreds of legislative and regulatory proposals and evaluates their impact on the new vehicle industry. Positions on specific legislative and regulatory issues are developed by the Association in cooperation with the dealer members and are presented as a collective view. MADA strives to minimize the impact of government regulations on its dealer members. The Maryland New Car and Truck Dealers Association Political Action Committee (MNCTDA/PAC) plays a significant role in the Association’s legislative program, working to elect candidates whose views most closely mirror those of the new car and truck dealers. In the years ahead, the Association will continue to recommend and support legislation that furthers the interest of the industry that is so vital to the state’s economic well being.
Your local new car and truck dealer is a vibrant part of the community in which he/she conducts business. Dealers are civic leaders, philanthropists, sports coaches, and they serve in other valuable roles in their community.
In addition to the good work dealers’ and their employees conduct every year, MADA contributes to a number of charities on the dealers behalf as well. Maryland’s Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore is one of the top recipients of MADA charitable funds. Each year, shock trauma administrators are presented with a check at MADA’s annual press preview for the Baltimore International Auto Show.
MADA is also a proud sponsor of the Maryland State Teacher of the Year. MADA annually awards the winning teacher with a free vehicle. The teacher of the year is also invited to speak to MADA members at the Annual Meeting and Legislative Reception.
