A lot has changed during 2020 but one thing remains, NADA Academy continues to be at the forefront of training leaders to adopt innovation and technology and adapt to the changing industry.

To celebrate and recognize our alumni, we are excited to announce the relaunch of the NADA Academy Experience Contest. The contest will showcase the lives and legacies of graduates who embody the mission of NADA academic excellence and leadership.

“NADA is proud of our Academy because it’s the gold standard and it has a legacy within the industry,” said Steve Park, Vice President of NADA Dealership Operations.

Since its inception, more than 11,000 students have graduated from over 375 NADA Academy classes. Academy graduates are proud of their experiences and are advocates for the impact of the program on their professional dealership careers.
