CDA consists of approximately 80 successful business owners from the United States, Canada, and Europe who come together to pool business knowledge and share business strategies. Originally, the respective member companies dealt primarily with the copier industry, but today, topics include connectable products, document imaging, network support, and much more. CDA has earned a national and international reputation as being comprised of the most successful business owners representing products and services on the leading edge of business technology.
CDA is a vehicle through which the exchange of ideas and concepts works for the improvement of all its members. It provides members with a resource network for finding solutions to today's business challenges and for comparing financial benchmarks on a dealer-dealer level. Since CDA operates on a geographically exclusive basis, members can openly discuss business strategies and execution methods. CDA also invites several guest speakers to each meeting, ranging from industry analysts and marketing experts to specialists in business management, health insurance, legal issues and more.
