Legislative grassroots meetings are a fundamental component of SDADA in that they’re used to educate elected officials — specifically members of the South Dakota Legislature — about issues that are important to the automotive industry.
These meetings help build relationships between member dealers and their elected officials. In crafting these personal relationships, we hope that when an issue arises, these elected officials will remember our member’s comments before taking any action.
Dealer participation is essential for continued success at the South Dakota Legislature. SDADA wants elected officials to directly hear from you, as your active involvement goes a long way in ensuring that issues facing motor vehicle dealers remain at the forefront of elected officials.
If you can’t attend a meeting in your area, we recommend you send someone from your dealership. Legislative grassroots meetings are our primary way of advocating on your behalf and have proven to be very successful.
