In 2018 and 2019, we witnessed a slew of legislative and regulatory activity in areas that affect dealer operations. At NADA Show 2020, our Legal and Regulatory education sessions will address these hot topics for dealers and provide the information new car- and truck dealers need to stay up-to-date with dealership processes.

Data Security and Privacy Update: 2020 and Beyond
Last year’s changes in federal and state law related to privacy and data security are having a tremendous impact on dealers and will continue to. Will dealer IT systems finally be free to add efficiencies for dealers, or will they become just another source of risk and increased cost? Join NADA Senior Counsel of Digital Affairs Brad Miller for an in-depth look at what the changes mean for dealers in 2020 and beyond.

Risks and Solutions for Used-Car Retailing
While selling or leasing used vehicles is potentially more profitable than new-car business, there are additional legal and compliance risks, as well as specific documentation requirements, to remember. We will address the prevailing issues of certified used vehicles, recalls, “as is” sales, warranty issues, utilizing documents to insulate dealers from risk, title histories, prior use and damage, advertising, and odometer tampering.
