With American businesses reopening and reacclimating to the current environment, it’s time to hear from America’s truck dealers through the 2020 ATD Dealer Attitude Survey of Manufacturers.
I urge my fellow dealers and others in the industry to contact their member of Congress this week to convey support for FET suspension and a strong economic recovery.
There are some new and exciting changes coming to ATD’s annual Show. The most important change for our members to note is that the ATD Show will not be held in 2021.
The truck dealers of America have not sat still during COVID-19. Just the opposite: they’ve worked tirelessly to keep employees and customers safe, keep commerce rolling, and support their local communities during this unprecedented time.
We are in uncharted territory. But we’ve weathered crises before, and we can do it again. ATD is here for you. I am here for you. We will make it through this together.
The greatest secret of ATD is that you—our valued member—might not be taking advantage of your membership. I learned years ago that ATD offers so much to all its members.
During his first speech as ATD chairman, Bassett, who also has locations in Toledo, Ohio and Indianapolis, shared his goals and platform for ATD during his two-year term.
In just a few days, I will pass the ATD torch forward to our Incoming Chair Steve Bassett. I’m confident he’ll continue to lead us with a renewed sense of passion, commitment, and vision.
Jim Carroll, leading global futurist and trends and innovation expert, will join the ATD General Session on Saturday, February 15.
