The Arkansas Automobile Dealers Association was founded in the fall of 1932 to represent the interests of Arkansas’s franchised new car and truck dealers. During its history, AADA has been led by many quality dealers, each one a pillar in their community. These leaders paved the way for the association to become one of the most respected trade organizations in the state and an important asset for the automotive industry.
Currently, there are over 220 franchise dealers in the state. They each play a vital role in maintaining Arkansas’s economic growth by supporting thousands of jobs and generating millions in tax revenue. Arkansas’s franchised dealers are also some of the most philanthropic businesses in their local communities, supporting social and fraternal organizations, schools, and charities.
