About The CDA

CDA is a dynamic group of independent dealers across North America who share best practices, industry events and innovative strategies to help their businesses excel. With the assistance of an industry financial analyst, CDA members measure their organizations against a specific financial benchmarking model to identify what great looks like. Owners meet three times per year and service and financial leaders meet once a year. In addition to the meetings, members communicate throughout the year, sharing information and assisting with national equipment deployments. CDA is a place where the best of the best come together, making the independent dealer channel stronger.
