Local car dealer nominated to GIADA Executive Board

Bart Barton, local used car dealer from Barton Used Car South, has been designated as the Georgia Independent Automobile Dealers Association president.

The Georgia Independent Automobile Dealers Association, better known in the used car industry as GIADA, is a not-for-profit industry trade association that has been the voice of Georgia’s independent auto dealers since 1955.

GIADA is committed to representing, educating, and informing Georgia’s independent motor vehicle dealers. As the country’s largest Independent Automobile Association, GIADA  has 43 dedicated volunteers that serve as board members for the association, which maintains around 2,500 members annually while consistently advocating for more than 4,500  licensed dealers in the state.  Responsibilities, which range from compliance education to legislative action, requires equal parts devotion & organization. GIADA’s executive officers, who carry much of this weight, are nominated by their peers for these leadership roles.
