Committees and Groups
From Legislative Policy to Member Services, the Denver Auto Show, NextGen and beyond, CADA’s Committees and Groups squarely keep the focus on members and how they can be best served.
Legislative Policy Committee
The Legislative Policy Committee (LPC) identifies and prioritizes legislative issues that could enhance or negatively affect dealer interests. The LPC evaluates and discusses each issue, then establishes policy and legislative recommendations to the CADA Board for approval.
The LPC is composed of CADA member dealers who are interested and willing to actively lead and participate at the Colorado state capitol to personally discuss issues of concern with their legislators.
Committee members actively develop relationships with state legislators and other state-elected leaders. Together with the CADA lobbying team, the LPC promotes our legislative policies as constituents AND industry leaders.
The LPC welcomes all dealer members. During the Colorado Legislative Session, which runs from January through early May each year, the committee meets at a minimum of every month. After that, the committee meets every quarter.

Member Services Committee
The Member Services Committee (MSC) selects and recommends products and services to the Board of Directors for its endorsement to CADA members. Dealer members are invited to join the Member Services Committee. When you do, you’ll take part in selecting the products and services that best help your — and other dealer members’ — dealerships.

Denver Auto Show Committee
The Denver Auto Show Committee is comprised of dealer members and senior CADA staff. The committee meets twice a year in person — more often by phone conference — and discusses the big-picture view of the show and its related events, such as the Preview Gala, Innovative Dealer Summit and Colorado Car Convoy.
From there, the eight- to 15-member committee makes recommendations to CADA staff and the Board of Directors and oversees that 10,000-foot-view of the event.
Because they’re most knowledgeable about the Denver Auto Show’s details, the committee often includes past chairs, along with other dealer members close to the Denver metro area.

Chief Operating Officer
The Executive Committee comprises the elected officers of CADA, along with the immediate past Chair. The Executive Committee acts on behalf of the Board when the Board is not in session — and has all of the rights, powers, duties and obligations of the Board.
Sometimes, the Board and/or the Executive Committee need more information to reach a decision on an issue. When that circumstance arises, the CADA Chair may appoint, assign and delegate authority to standing and special committees based on CADA needs.
