Get involved — Membership in Far West Equipment Dealers Association paves the way to greater business success. Our dealers are leaders among their peers. They are champions for the equipment industry. They understand and value participation in the process. Join us today as we make a difference.
FWEDA works with EDA and the Industry Relations Task Force to negotiate equitable agreements between dealers and OEMs. We advance cooperative relationships among equipment dealers and their suppliers so they can focus on their competitive advantage.
|• Industry Relations Task Force
• Dealer & OEM agreements
Far West was founded on grass-roots advocacy. We remain steadfast in our efforts to preserve positive business objectives and protect dealers from onerous and unnecessary legislation that stifles innovation and economic growth. FWEDA is the only voice for equipment dealers in the business and regulatory landscape across our territory of seven states. The combined efforts of FWEDA and EDA extend that influence to national policy decisions.
