An Association Run by Dealers for Dealers

The Massachusetts Independent Automobile Dealer Association (MIADA) was founded in the early 80s as an affiliate of the National Independent Automobile Dealer Association (NIADA) by a group of dealers in Massachusetts. NIADA offers education, DC lobbying, and networking with vendors for discounts and beneficial profit centers for dealers.

In 2010, MIADA took over the New England charter of NIADA and added ME, VT, NH, CT and RI to the MIADA Association. During the COVID pandemic, it became obvious that the territory was too large to be managed by a single office in Massachusetts. So, the territory was split into two regions: Northern New England aka NHIADA (ME, VT and NH) and Southern New England aka SNEIADA/MIADA (MA, RI and CT).

The MIADA/SNEIADA represents dealers in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. We lobby for laws that will help dealers with business regulations that make sense and fight laws that will hurt our dealers. We support independent dealers with education, products, and vendors that help them with everyday operational necessities. We also help consumers by educating dealers to operate ethically.

Code of Ethics – Dedicated to Fair Dealing

We Pledge:

  • To have a duty of integrity, honor and fair dealing toward the public.
  • To comply with all city, county, state and federal laws and endeavor to keep ourselves informed of those laws governing our industry.
  • To not intentionally injure the business reputation of another member or competitor.
  • To employ truth and accuracy in advertising, sales and service.
  • To stand behind any guarantee given with the sale of a motor vehicle.
  • To not perform any act which will bring disrepute to the motor vehicle industry.
  • To expose or halt any scheme designed to deceive or defraud the auto consumer and to aid in prosecuting those guilty of such acts.
  • To constantly strive to improve business methods so that the public will be better served.
  • To encourage the American system of free enterprise.
