AADA Panel Sessions Tackle the Big
Issues

1 minute to read

AADA National Dealer Conventions are a time when Dealers from around the country get together to hear from experts on the big issues facing our industry. One of the key pillars of this year’s Convention is the panel program, with four sessions featuring industry leaders tackling some hot topics.

One of the hottest issues facing our industry is the pending introduction of an Automotive Code of Conduct, and our panel ‘The Franchise Code and what it means for Franchised Dealers’, hosted by David Blackhall, will take a good hard look at what the code might look like, and what it means for Dealers.

Another huge issue is that of gender diversity in our workforce. In ‘Gender Diversity in Dealerships’, we will celebrate the leading and most influential women working in the automotive industry. We will hear their stories, explore their views on the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women working in automotive, and where they see the opportunities for improvement across the industry.

Our F&I industry panel, ‘Dealership F&I: 2020 + Beyond’, will discuss the ramifications of developments coming out of the recent investigations by ASIC and the ACCC, plus the prospect of changes to point of sale exemptions.

In ‘ROI: 2020 + Beyond’, host Dale McCauley and panel will investigate whether today’s business and operating model still the best way to maximise your ROI – and if not, what alternatives exist.
