CNCDA focuses on protecting and promoting the interests of franchised new car dealers before all state government and regulatory agencies. Working to create a business friendly climate where new car dealers can thrive, provide the best products and services to consumers and maintain high employment rates are all of critical importance to CNCDA and its members.

In the ever changing California legislative and regulatory environment it is crucial that new car dealers statewide are represented before the California Legislature, regulatory agencies and Governor Newsom’s Administration on a number of industry issues including franchise laws, employment and labor laws, Zero Emission Vehicles, Autonomous Vehicles, transportation, sales tax and fees.


CNCDA Members remain heavily engaged in legislative, regulatory, legal and industry developments.
