Commenting on NCM’s first-time participation at NAMAD’s 31st Annual Membership Meeting, NAMAD President Damon Lester said, “I am pleased that NCM is taking advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the challenges facing minority-owned dealerships, as the recent downturn in the retail automotive industry has been especially difficult for our members.” He continued, “Our member conference is the industry’s leading event specifically for minority automobile dealers and presents our members with an outstanding opportunity to learn how to be even better operators. Including NCM Associates in our education program will expose them to yet another resource to aid them in taking their dealerships to the next level.”
