Protecting and promoting the interests of franchised dealers throughout Illinois

My name is Rick Yemm, Yemm Auto Group, Galesburg, and it is my pleasure to serve as IADA Chairman in 2021. While we don’t know when in-person meetings and legislative hearings will replace virtual events, we are actively representing dealer interests. IADA's primary mission is to represent franchised dealers before the Illinois Legislature and various Regulatory Agencies. We are already beginning to see a record number of legislative introductions which we are tracking and scheduled to testify on. Please be prepared to contact your Legislators when needed! Your grassroots efforts will help us make sure the dealer voice is heard in our State Capitol.
