Chairman's Message

Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz once said, “Life is 10% what happens and 90% how you respond.”   While we at ATAE cannot always control what may happen in the states across this nation, we can certainly help in how you - the ATAE - responds.   Jennifer, Jill and a cadre of fine association execs within NADA stand ready and willing to help all ATAEs in responding to the events, trends and situations that impact our lives, and the lives of our dealer members, on a daily basis.   Additionally, both Jennifer and Jill do a yeoman's effort in proactively planning, implementing and conducting the day to day work of ATAE.  We are pleased to have them on our team and thankful to be part of ATAE.

Thanks,
Bob Glaser
2017 ATAE chairman
