MAADA consists of more than 130 franchised new car and truck dealers from the 18-county Metro Atlanta area, as well as over a dozen associate members. Our association and its members strive to uphold the highest standards of honesty and integrity, in an effort to continuously improve the car buying experience for Metro Atlanta’s consumers.
MAADA also produces the Atlanta International Auto Show, which is the largest annual event of its kind in the Southeast, and the largest consumer show held at the Georgia World Congress Center.
We take great pride in our support of a large number of community programs, including GSGA Junior Tour, The Salvation Army, Camp Twin Lakes and Toys for Tots.
The Association is also thrilled at the success of our Academy for Automotive Professionals, which offers training in sales, management and fixed operations. To our knowledge, this is the only sales, management and fixed operations training center that is owned and operated by a dealer association for its members.
