The mission of the Tennessee Automotive Association (TAA) is to protect, promote and advance the welfare of our members: retail car and truck dealers, valued associate and finance members, and all of our members’ customers. By helping our members speak with one voice, we enhance the effectiveness and success of each.
Where We Help
Much of the TAA’s success story comes through the efforts of your very experienced team on Capitol Hill in Nashville. We have consistently demonstrated our ability to pass pro-industry legislation and defeat burdensome measures that could have harmed our members’ businesses. We also support the federal efforts of the National Automobile Dealers Association and the American International Automobile Dealers Association. The TAA strives to keep our members informed on an ongoing basis about legislation and proposed regulations that would impact their businesses.
TAA is an active participant at the meetings of the Tennessee Motor Vehicle Commission, and work with other state agencies such as the Taxpayer and Vehicle Services Division, the state Attorney General’s Office, the Department of Revenue, the Department of Commerce & Insurance, the Division of Consumer Affairs, and the Department of Environment & Conservation.
How We Communicate With Our Members
We consider solid communications to be our top priority, and we stay in touch with members in a variety of ways:
- We communicate regularly through the TAA Bulletin, which has been recognized as one of the best industry newsletters in the country. We are expanding access to this communications tool so that members can access it online.
- TAA conducts informative meetings for members and their employees.
- The TAA informs members of opportunities available through our for-profit subsidiary, Tennessee Automotive Association Service Company. Our Endorsements Committee seeks out and partners with firms whose valued-added products and services are geared toward enhancing your bottom line.
- TAA has an open line of communication with motor vehicle manufacturers, state regulatory agencies, policymakers and legislators. We pass along what we learn to our members.
Our Home Base
While we pride ourselves on going to various Tennessee communities to meet face-to-face with local members, we maintain a headquarters in Nashville so we are close to state government and the various regulators. Built in the 1960s, the building is bought and paid for, and has been extensively renovated over the years. Come by and visit us anytime!
