NFADA’s MacKay to Deliver Compliance Summit Welcome Address


LAS VEGAS — Andy MacKay, executive director of the Nevada Franchised Auto Dealers Association (NFADA), will deliver the welcome address at the upcoming Compliance Summit, organizers announced Monday. The event will be held Aug. 29–30, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas as part of the annual Industry Summit.

MacKay’s address, “The Dealer’s Voice: Trade Associations on the Front Lines,” will begin at 9:05 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 29, following a sponsored breakfast and preceding the opening keynote address, which will feature The Warranty Group’s Aaron Lunt. MacKay is expected to offer an insider’s perspective on campaigns led by NFADA and other dealer trade associations against regulatory and factory overreach.

“We simply could not have asked for a better speaker to kick off the first Compliance Summit designed for dealers in the Western states,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom. “Considering the work he and his organization have done on behalf of franchised dealers throughout the state of Nevada in what has been, at times, a hostile regulatory climate, we can’t wait to hear what he has to say.”

The Compliance Summit agenda also will include educational sessions devoted to Rules and Regulations, Your Responsibilities and Easy-to-Implement Processes and Controls. Registered attendees are invited to RSVP to attend the review session and sit for the Certified Automotive Compliance Specialist exam, offered for no additional charge by Automotive Compliance Education (ACE).

Compliance Summit Adds Certification Component


TAMPA, Fla. — Organizers of Compliance Summit have announced that attendees will have the opportunity to earn Certified Automotive Compliance Specialist status at the Las Vegas event, which will be held Aug. 29–30, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas, as part of the annual Industry Summit.

David Gesualdo, who serves as show chair and as publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom, said the addition of a certification component was in response to demand from past attendees.

“I can’t tell you how many times we have heard, ‘I need something I can take back to the dealership,’” Gesualdo said. “That is a perfectly reasonable request and, with the help of our speakers, we are going to make it happen.”
