Our History

Additional Information


The Tennessee Independent Automobile Dealers Association, Inc., known as the TNIADA, is a not-for-profit Tennessee corporation that was organized in 2001 to represent and support the interests of the independent used car dealers.

The TNIADA was established out of the need for a common ground for independent car dealers to learn how to be successful; to protect themselves from unfair and unnecessary regulations; to exchange ideas; to educate the public and the law makers of the importance of the industry to the general public.

The TNIADA provides benefits & services to our members that they are not always able to find on their own. We also provide educational opportunities for dealers and their staff through our Dealer Training School and seminars. TNIADA offers networking opportunities that are vital to the success of small businesses with quarterly Board of Directors meetings, local association meetings and an Annual Convention and Trade Show. Membership includes a subscription to the Independent Dealer, the only magazine dedicated to Tennessee's used car dealers, as well as discounts and coupons for dealer support products and services.

TNIADA allows a voice for independent dealers too small to represent themselves before state and federal agencies and Congress. One of our more important roles is to educate both regulators and legislators about the impacts of proposed legislation and to promote legislation which benefits this industry. Whether it's creating an environment for sharing ideas, or serving as a place to go for solutions to problems that arise, TNIADA is the only association in Tennessee whose primary purpose is the welfare and success of the independent dealer.
