About GNYADA

History

Est. 1910

For almost 100 years, GNYADA members have relied on the Association for information and services to help them run their businesses. In addition to providing practical day-to-day help for dealers, GNYADA is an important advocate for the automobile industry.

From its earliest days in Brooklyn, the Association has proudly served metropolitan New York's dealers and their employees. Our dealers have been part of tremendous advances in the industry. Our dealers have passed their knowledge on to children and grandchildren—serving as trusted pillars of their communities throughout the metro area.

Today, the Association's membership consists of more than 650 new car franchises in New York’s nine downstate county region—more than 95% of the area’s franchised new vehicle dealers. Whether they live and work in towns or bustling cities, the dealers who make up GNYADA are serving their communities: providing thousands of jobs, paying millions in tax revenue, and supporting charities. GNYADA members sit on the boards of schools, hospitals, and civic associations and make huge contributions to their communities that go largely unnoticed.
