President's Message

First and foremost, I want to extend a big thank you to our professional staff and all the volunteer committee members putting the final touches on our annual conference to be held at the One Ocean Resort & Spa in Atlantic Beach, Florida from March 27-29th. It's not too late to register and I recommend attendance for NVLA members and non-members alike. Our oceanfront accommodations set the perfect backdrop for an enjoyable and successful conference.  

At the conference, our goal is to benefit each attendee in a real, tangible way that will add value to your bottom line. I promise, you will take away valuable information, make new contacts, and improve your businesses.

Here is a preview of what we have to offer and what's on the agenda:

    Networking Events:
    • "Have a Beer With a Banker" - attendees will have the opportunity to network with six different funders while enjoying a cold one in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
    Lease Here Pay Here:
    • Get the best practices from the most successful operators in the country. Learn what works from the best!
    • Keynote Speaker, Ryan Hart, of the The Players Championship, sponsored by Toyota.
    Golf Outing:
    • Enjoy a round at Atlantic Beach Country Club while networking with industry colleagues.
    Exhibit Hall:
    • A full slate of industry service providers, dealers, vehicle manufacturers, upfitters, vehicle modifiers, and industry professionals.

A final big thank you to all of our sponsors! This event is not possible without their support.

I look forward to seeing you in Florida next week!
