Ballots coming to WANADA dealers from NADA on the Metro Washington director position that expires in 2015[I]Tammy Darvish seeks reelection to a third term[/I]
A letter via U.S. Mail will post today from NADA to WANADA members in NADAês director district for Metropolitan Washington regarding the impending expiration of the director representative term here next January. The letter will also describe balloting NADA will do among WANADA members to fill the seat that will occur in a subsequent mailing on May 9 with a return date of May 30.
Tamara Darvish of DARCARS, who currently represents Metropolitan Washington dealers on the NADA Board, has said sheêll seek reelection from her fellow dealers for the three year term that will commence in January, 2015 at the NADA Convention. In the interim, sheêll finish off her 2nd term on the NADA Board and serve a third term if reelected.
Metro Washington, DC is one of 58 director districts or NADA states that dealers from across the country represent on the national board that includes the 50 U.S. states — three of the more populous being divided in two — and a number of major metropolitan areas, like ours encompassing the National Capital Area. In total, NADAês Board can have up to 64 directors, several of whom are at large, such as the American Truck Dealer representative.
WANADA cooperates and interacts with NADA, F.B.O. mutual dealer members in the NADA director district as do other state and metropolitan area dealer associations in the Automotive Trade Associationsê network (ATAE).
WANADA, of course, takes no position on NADA director balloting which remains entirely among those dealers seeking to join or be reelected to the NADA Board. That said, WANADA encourages its mutual members with NADA to actively engage with NADA including with its Metro Washington director who is an honorary member of WANADAês Board.
Note, finally, that NADA balloting for expired director seats is important, because even with uncontested positions on the board all candidates must garner the votes of at least ten percent of the NADA dealers in the director district.Download Bulletin PDF
