Denver (CADA Headquarters)
Is your dealership operating at peak performance? Are your current operations designed to capitalize on profit opportunities? In conjunction with the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), this Lifeline to Profits workshop is an outstanding opportunity to develop a strategy and action plan for maximizing your dealership’s profits.
NADA trainers will help you identify untapped profit opportunities in your dealership. You will take home a practical action plan specifically designed for you. This in-depth and intensive two and a half-day session will provide you the essential edge you need to more effectively compete in today’s competitive market.
In order to fully benefit from this exciting opportunity, it’s important to bring your numbers:
You’ll begin and end each day with a developmental session that refines a specific dealership action plan for you based on information covered in the workshop. You’ll discuss the most positive action, event or result your dealership has seen in the last six months.
In addition, you’ll be asked to provide trainers with information about a critical concern you’d like to identify as a key element in the improvement of your operation. Most important, be prepared to actively participate.
Specifically, the association’s Lifeline to Profits program “can help you meet any number of challenges, from having too much inventory to seeing our cash flow trickle to a near standstill,” said Dale Willey, Chairman of NADA.

Ron, and his wife Susan, took over the dealership in November 2005. They hope customers will find the newly remodeled dealership to be “enjoyable, comfortable and professional.”
According to Ron, the dealership has been setting records in both sales and parts.
