Why You Should Attend the Upcoming Far West Annual Convention

There is simply no substitute for face time.  Our Annual meeting gives you that unique opportunity to rub shoulders with other dealer principals and dealership employees from the states served by your Association, as well as industry friends and manufacturers.  You have a lot in common with the other attendees – manufacturers, inventory, customers, aftermarket, regulations, taxes, insurance, employees and more which means you have a great deal to talk about.  You don’t find this level of interactions just anywhere.  Make time for your convention, your business is worth it!
