A message from Alvin E Melendez, Executive Director, VIADA
Just two weeks ago, your Association held it's annual "VIADA at the Capitol" lobby day at Capitol Square here in Richmond, Virginia.
Our dedicated Dealer members were out in full force that day to meet with legislators and their staff to make our priorities and concerns heard.
None of this would have been possible without the dedicated hard work of our own Director of Government Affairs, Gonzalo Aida.
Gonzalo's great work for the Association has not gone unnoticed, and he was honored on the floor of the Virginia Senate by one of his former bosses, Senator David Marsden.
We're very fortunate to have Gonzalo on the VIADA team advocating for Virginia's Independent Dealers. Please join me in thanking him for all of his hard work.
Alvin E. Melendez, CMD
