THE DRIVER'S SEAT

“An 80-Year Tradition of Stepping Forward”

As the summer months turned into fall, your NCADA

leadership has been actively engaged in representing

the interests of NCADA members both in North

Carolina as well as in our nation’s Capital. From local

townhall meetings, to the NADA Washington

Conference, to the NCADA Legal Seminar and

Hurricanes Florence and Michael, NCADA’s leadership

has been proactive in working to support, promote

and educate franchised car, truck and RV dealers.

In late September, a group of dealers attended the

NADA Washington Conference. In addition to

meetings with both Senator Burr and Senator Tillis,

the dealers met with several Congressmen to

promote key legislative issues impacting the retail

automotive industry. Additionally, Representative

Patrick McHenry hosted the dealers for an evening of

fellowship and dinner and to provide all of us with an

insider’s perspective on the Washington, DC events.

In mid-October, more than 130 industry members

attended the 9th annual NCADA Legal Seminar held in

Greensboro. Representatives from the Department of

Revenue as well as the DMV were there to provide an

up-to-date summary of key projects and programs.

Industry attorneys, Richard Vinegar and Shawn

Mercer, led discussions involving subscription

programs, incentive programs, autonomous vehicles

and electric vehicles. Special “shout out” to John

Policastro for his efforts to oversee and moderate the

day’s activities. Great job to all!

Lastly, all North Carolina dealers and families were

impacted by the effects of Hurricane Florence and

Michael. Kudos go out to the NADA Disaster Relief

Fund for issuing more than 600 checks to industry

employees who had personal damages to their homes

and possessions. Equally as important, many thanks

to Mr. Arden Hetland and the team at American

Financial for their generous contribution to the

NCADA Disaster Relief Fund.

With the November mid-term elections now over,

the auto industry and the State of North Carolina

are fast approaching a time of unparalleled

upheaval and growth. The tremendous influx of

new citizens, consolidation in our industry, a

generational change in dealer body, all combined

with the newly elected officials, will create

undeniable “disruption” in the business/political

landscape in Raleigh and throughout our industry.

In closing, North Carolina dealers have an 80+ year

tradition of stepping forward to proactively plan for

industry changes. This is a tradition that binds us

to this day and one that sets North Carolina’s

industry leadership apart from other states.

The time to get involved is now. Please plan to

attend the upcoming Executive Forum in

December and the Sea Island Convention in June

2019. Your participation, much like that of the

generations of dealers before us, makes a

difference. Thank you for your support of NCADA

and your support over the next 8 months of my

term as chairman.

Tim Ilderton

NCADA CHAIRMAN

Legal Seminar

NCADA Hosts Legal Seminar in Greensboro

The 2018 NCADA Legal Seminar was recently

held in Greensboro on October 17, providing

NCADA members with an important update on

the many legal, regulatory, and legislative issues

facing our industry. Among the topics discussed

were hot button issues such as the new “Title in

Transit” process effective January 1, consumer

finance issues, important regulatory changes

impacting dealers, and new franchise laws

overview.

Joining NCADA’s legal team of John Policastro,

Shawn Mercer, and Richard Vinegar, in this

year’s program were Lt. Matt Nies of the North

Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles, and Janice

Davidson of the North Carolina Department of

Revenue. Lt. Nies addressed the seminar with a

helpful and well-received update on DMV

enforcement efforts and dealer regulation issues,

while Ms. Davidson provided a “primer” on key

sales tax areas for dealers. Attendees also heard

from Julia Dixon, legal counsel for First Benefits

Insurance Mutual – NCADA’s new strategic

partner for dealership workers’ compensation

insurance. Ms. Dixon outlined important parts of

North Carolina’s workers’ compensation law with

a focus on franchised dealers.

With so many issues impacting franchised dealers, the

NCADA Legal Seminar is held each year to assist our

dealer members in navigating through a complex and

challenging legal and regulatory environment. Please

make plans for at least one dealership representative to

attend next year’s program.


NADA Washington Conference

NC Dealers Go To Washington, D.C.

A delegation of NCADA leadership, led by Chairman Tim

Ilderton and Vice Chairman Jay Wyatt, participated in

the 2018 NADA Washington Conference in September.

Joining the group were NCADA Immediate Past

Chairman Tom Hunter, Board of Trustees members

David Westcott and Dave Hansing, Board member and

current TIME Ally National Dealer of the Year Jack

Salzman, and NextGen member Greg Westcott. NCADA

President Robert Glaser and General Counsel John

Policastro also joined the group.

Attendees heard the latest on key federal issues

facing franchised dealers during the last few months of

the current Congress. The meeting also presented an

opportunity to hear from government officials including Director of The Office of Management and Budget and

CFPB Acting Director Mick Mulvaney, Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania), as well as a midterm election

update by nationally recognized political analyst Charlie Cook.

Most importantly, NCADA visited with North Carolina’s congressional delegation including Senators Thom Tillis

and Richard Burr and Representatives Richard Hudson, Ted Budd, Mark Meadows and Mark Walker. As part of

these discussions, the importance of resolving the Military Lending Act issue was stressed to the members.

NCADA thanks our dealer leaders for participating in this important conference and providing our members of

congress with a firsthand perspective on the key issues impacting our industry.

Fall Board Meeting

Board meets to address industry issues and shortage of qualified labor

Chairman Tim Ilderton led the NCADA Fall Board Meeting in late October in Blowing Rock, NC. The Board

addressed several industry issues including the shortage of qualified labor, an update on the Hyundai/Genesis

realignment plan, the Military Lending/GAP issue, as well as initial plans for the 2019 North Carolina legislative

session.

Additionally, the Board approved a plan for the 2018 Hometown Heroes Program that will culminate on

December 11 in Winston-Salem with the recognition of the local hometown heroes. Board members were also

encouraged to reach out to their local fire, police or EMT chief to nominate a local first responder.

Lastly, the NCADA legal team provided Board members with an update on the proposed Title in Transit plan that

takes effect this coming January 1, 2019.

Several members joined the NCADA Board of Directors and attended their first industry Board meeting. New

Board members include Mary Margaret Latham Vann from Parkway Hyundai Volvo Subaru in Wilmington, Mark

Carter from Carter Chevrolet in Shelby, Adam Parks from Parks Chevrolet in Kernersville, Damian Mills from the

Mills Automotive Group and our new Secretary, Jeff Michael from NorthPoint CDJ Ram in Winston-Salem.


TITLE IN TRANSIT

New “Title in Transit” Law Effective

January 1, 2019

For decades, dealers have frequently been

either criminally or administratively cited by

DMV for selling vehicles without having

physical possession of the title at the time of

the sale. Recognizing the issue as a significant

concern for franchised dealers, the NCADA

Board of Directors instructed NCADA’s legal

team to seek an alternative process that would

protect consumers while recognizing the

inherent difficulties when motor vehicle titles

are not delivered to the dealer in a timely

manner.

After multi-year discussions with DMV, NCADA

was successful in enacting legislation in the

2018 legislative session to establish a process in

which a dealer can lawfully sell a motor vehicle

without having physical possession of the

vehicle’s title, provided that the dealer provides

the purchaser with a written disclosure notice

informing the purchaser that the dealer does

not have possession of the title and certifies in

writing to DMV that all outstanding known liens

have been paid and that the dealer will submit

the title within certain time frames. Due to

difficulties DMV perceived about obtaining

information about vehicles titled in other

states, as currently written, the new law will

not allow dealers to sell such out-of-state

vehicles unless the dealer has physical

possession of the vehicle’s title. However,

NCADA is optimistic that vehicles with out-ofstate

titles will be added to the law soon.

This legislation becomes effective on January 1,

2019, and since the enactment of the bill,

NCADA has been working with DMV on

implementation forms, issues and processes.

Dealers are encouraged to look for upcoming

Dealer Alerts with important details and other

information in advance of the effective date.

NCADA thanks all dealers and other dealership

representatives who assisted in this effort over

the years with contacts to your legislators on

this critical industry issue.


NCADA would like to congratulate Mr. Bill Brown,

President of Brown & Wood Cadillac Buick GMC

Mazda in Greenville, North Carolina, on his

nomination for the 2019 TIME Ally Dealer of the

TIME NOMINEE

DEALER

Year award.

BILL BROWN

Brown is one of a select group of 51 dealer

nominees from across the country who will be

honored at the National Automobile Dealers

Association's show in San Francisco, CA on

January 25, 2019.

The TIME Ally Dealer of the Year award is one of

the automobile industry's most prestigious and

coveted honors. Recipients are among

the nation's most successful auto dealers who

also demonstrate a long-standing commitment

to community service. Brown was chosen to

represent the North Carolina Automobile

Dealers Association in the national

competition for the 50th annual award. The

award is sponsored by TIME in association

with Ally Financial, and in cooperation with

NADA. A panel of faculty members from the

Tauber Institute for Global Operations at the

University of Michigan will select one finalist

from each of the four NADA regions and one

national Dealer of the Year.


“I firmly believe that the success

that I have experienced in the

automotive business is mainly

due to my setting specific goals

and my drive to improve myself

each day,” nominee Brown said.

“I have learned that success is a

journey not a destination.”

A 1964 graduate of J.H. Rose

High School in Greenville,

Brown earned a B.S.B.A. from the

University of North Carolina at

Chapel Hill in 1971, where he was

a member of the varsity swim

team. He also did two tours in

Vietnam on active duty for the

United States Naval Reserve

from 1968 to 1970.

His career journey began in 1973

at Brown & Wood, the familyowned

dealership that was

founded by his grandfather in

1936 as a Pontiac store. His

father, William W. (Billy) Brown,

who was the second generation

to take over the dealership, was

the most influential person in

Brown’s professional life.

“My father left me three core

principles that have always

guided me,” he said. “The first

one was that the loyal customer

is king. The second was that you

cannot have satisfied customers

until you have satisfied

employees. And the third was

that since we have been blessed,

we have an obligation to give

back to the community.”

Today, Bill and his brother, Tom,

are third generation owners of

the dealership. Bill’s son, Will is

currently working for another

dealership group. His goal is to

be a fourth-generation

dealership

owner using the same core

values that have served the

family so well.

With such a long and storied

history in the auto industry,

Brown is a vigorous supporter

of his state association, having

served as chairman, vice

chairman, treasurer and on the

board of directors for 12 years.

He understands the importance

of staying politically active and

lobbying for pro-dealer

initiatives.

“It was in the best interest of all

car dealers for me to participate

in the legislative process and

get motor vehicle franchise bills

passed in the legislature,”

Brown said. “I made at least 100

trips to Raleigh, North

Carolina to lobby, sit in hearings

and do my best to influence the

passage of legislation on behalf

of our state’s dealers.”

WE "...SINCE

BEEN HAVE

WE BLESSED,

AN HAVE

OBLIGATION

GIVE BACK

TO

THE TO

COMMUNITY..."

Brown has also put his

leadership skills to work for his

community. He has served the

Greenville-Pitt County

Chamber of Commerce; Pitt

County Committee of 100

(economic development

board); Pitt Community

College Foundation; and the

Greenville Jaycees (chairman

of the 4th of July fireworks for

three years).

Brown is proud of his

contribution to the Coastal

Conservation Association, an

organization of

conservationists and

recreational anglers who work

to protect coastal marine

resources. “I helped the North

Carolina chapter gain a

legislative presence that led to

the passage of a bill

authorizing a Recreational

Saltwater Fishing License,” he

said. “I get great satisfaction

from serving organizations for

which I have a passion.”

A member of the Greenville

Rotary, where he was

president from 2016 to 2017,

Brown has been named a Paul

Harris fellow four times in

recognition of his contribution

to Rotary and to his

community.

“I worked very hard to learn

how to be a leader in my

business and that has flowed

to my church and to all the

organizations in which I

participate,” he said. “My goal

is to leave this place better

that it was when I started.”

Brown was nominated for the

TIME Ally Dealer of the Year

award by Robert Glaser,

president of the North

Carolina Automobile Dealers

Association.

NEW STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP

NCADA Announces Partnership with

First Benefits Insurance Mutual

For nearly 40 years, NCADA has been committed to assisting dealers with obtaining competitively

priced workers’ compensation insurance to best serve the needs of your dealership and to best

protect your employees. As part of this effort, NCADA has strived to continuously examine the everchanging

marketplace and to identify the best means of attending to the needs of our dealer

members.

Beginning in 1981, in response to the calls of NCADA members for a program uniquely tailored to the

industry, NCADA formed its own Self Insurance-Fund (SIF). In light of regulatory and economic

changes, in 2009 NCADA merged the SIF into the independently operated, Dealers Choice Mutual

Insurance (DCMI), which was exclusively endorsed by NCADA. DCMI operated from the start with

the same mission as the original SIF – Workers’ Compensation, By Dealers, For Dealers.

NCADA is happy to announce the next step in this nearly four-decade long effort -- a strategic

partnership with a new provider, First Benefits Insurance Mutual (FBIM), to assist our franchised

dealer members.

First Benefits, similar to DCMI, is an insurance provider created by another of North Carolina’s

leading trade associations – the North Carolina Retail Merchants Association. NCADA has a longstanding

relationship and has worked closely with the Retail Merchants Association on legislative

and public policy matters throughout the years, including insurance issues.

NCADA’s commitment to working with our members to provide high-quality, competitively priced

workers’ compensation insurance is just as strong TODAY as when it was first made to our members

in 1981. Forming a partnership with an insurance provider that provides a comprehensive network

of independent agents and covering a larger spectrum of retail merchants, including the automotive

industry, is the natural next step in NCADA’s efforts for our members.

As you work to place your workers’ compensation insurance in 2019, we encourage you to provide

NCADA and First Benefits with the opportunity to continue being your partner.

If you have any questions, please call Robert Glaser or John Policastro at NCADA at 919-828-4421.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who is First Benefits Insurance Mutual?

Similar to NCADA’s Dealers Choice, First Benefits, is a state-approved insurance provider created by

another of North Carolina’s leading trade associations – the North Carolina Retail Merchants

Association. NCADA has a long-standing relationship and has worked closely with the Retail Merchants

Association on legislative and public policy matters throughout the years, including insurance issues.

Why is DCMI transitioning out of the marketplace?

Throughout its existence, Dealers Choice Mutual Insurance (DCMI) has served North Carolina’s

franchised dealers well, while at the same time reviewing industry options within the insurance

marketplace. With a strong tradition of volunteer leadership and led by franchised dealers from across

North Carolina for the past 37 years, DCMI regularly reviewed the insurance landscape to help position

dealers to maximize insurance savings. Currently, with a strong financial position and in light of

continuing economic changes, DCMI, on behalf of the dealers, has chosen an opportune time to assist

dealers in transitioning to a larger mutual insurance company with expanded opportunities to

streamline program costs and provide very competitive premiums.

When did NCADA start the workers’ compensation program?

Beginning in 1981, in response to the calls of NCADA members for a program uniquely tailored to the

industry, NCADA formed its own Self-Insurers Fund (SIF). In light of regulatory and economic changes,

in 2009 NCADA merged the SIF into the independently operated, Dealers Choice Mutual Insurance

(DCMI) – exclusively endorsed by NCADA. DCMI, which maintained its headquarters at the NCADA

offices, has been operated from the start with the same mission as the original SIF – Workers’

Compensation, By Dealers, For Dealers. As such, NCADA has a 37-year history of successfully working

with dealers to provide workers' compensation coverage.

Why has NCADA joined with First Benefits Insurance Mutual?

NCADA’s new strategic partnership with First Benefits provides a broader, more-comprehensive network of

independent agents that covers a larger spectrum of retail merchants, including the automotive industry

while at the same time, providing increased financial security to allow for consistent, year-over-year

premium pricing. Additionally, the new partnership allows NCADA members to be part of a larger pool of

companies and thereby spread the risk related to workers’ compensation insurance.

What changes are in store for my dealership by switching to First Benefits?

NCADA has entered into this strategic partnership in order to continue our membership commitment

and benefit of providing our dealers with a quality insurance provider for your workers’ compensation

needs. First Benefits offers you experienced leadership, responsive customer service and efficient

claims management to their insurance agents, business owners and their employees. It is our hope that

you will experience a seamless transition to a new provider and we stand ready to assist you in any way.


Does my membership in NCADA allow my dealership to use First Benefits?

Yes, as an NCADA membership benefit and due to NCADA’s strategic partnership with First Benefits, your

NCADA membership qualifies your dealership to be covered by First Benefits. Be sure to submit your

First Benefits Endorsing Organization Membership Form before the start of your coverage.

Can I use my local agent to place my coverage with First Benefits?

Yes, your local agent/broker may already be an appointed agent with First Benefits. If not, First Benefits

can work with your local agent/broker to establish such a relationship. In the alternative, we can assist

you with finding a local agent/broker who can assist you as well.

Does First Benefits support NCADA?

Yes, as a part of the agreement between NCADA and First Benefits, First Benefits is planning to be a part

of several NCADA upcoming meetings and future conventions. In addition, NCADA members are

separately accounted for and by utilizing this NCADA membership benefit and selecting NCADA as your

qualifying membership, NCADA as the sponsoring member, will receive a small royalty fee from First

Benefits.

How do we report employee injuries?

As part of the NCADA/First Benefits program, all injuries, claims, and related documentation are reported

directly to First Benefits on forms that will be provided to you or are available on their website.

Does NCADA have any input with First Benefits and its services to dealers?

Yes, as part of the strategic partnership, a special advisory council to the First Benefits Board of Directors

will provide input to First Benefits on how to best serve North Carolina’s franchised dealers. In addition,

NCADA dealer members will have a representative on the First Benefits Board of Directors.

What do I need to get started?

Two things! First, contact your local insurance agency or broker with whom you may have a working /

business relationship and ask if they are an appointed agent with First Benefits. Second, if you are an

existing DCMI policyholder, please contact NCADA in order to assist you with getting your loss runs that

you will provide to First Benefits.

Questions and/or Assistance

Please contact Robert Glaser - rglaser@ncada.com or John Policastro – jpolicastro@ncada.com at

919-828-4421 with any questions or for any assistance in working with First Benefits.


DISASTER RELIEF FUND

NCADA Assists Dealership Employees in Wake of Hurricane

In an effort to help industry employees that have

been seriously impacted by Hurricanes Florence

and Michael, NCADA’s Executive Committee

voted to activate the NCADA Disaster Relief Fund.

The Fund, which was originally started in the

wake of Hurricane Fran, has provided much

needed assistance to NCADA member employees

during Hurricanes Fran, Floyd, and Isabella.

“Our goal is to help those dealership employees

whose lives were significantly impacted by the

storm. We have a longtime tradition of helping

one another in North Carolina and this Fund will

be used to assist employees and their families

who suffered major flood damage as a result of

the storm,” noted NCADA Chairman Tim Ilderton

from Ilderton Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep in High Point.

NCADA has been working in partnership with

NADA’s Emergency Relief Fund to identify and

assist as many industry employees as possible.

NCADA’s Disaster Relief Fund has been used to

supplement funds granted to individuals by

NADA. General managers were urged to ensure

that all dealership employees were aware of the

assistance available to them.

So far the Disaster Relief Fund has been able to

assist more than 600 industry employees and

their families.

Any additional, donations to the NCADA

Disaster Relief Fund can be made to:

NCADA Charitable Foundation

P.O. Box 12167

Raleigh, NC 27605

Please indicate “NCADA Disaster Relief Fund” in

the memo line.

“The biggest thing is to take care of your family

and take care of your employees; everything

else is insured. We can fix everything else.”

President Robert Glaser stated the Wednesday

afternoon before Hurricane Florence made

landfall. NCADA has activated the Disaster

Relief Fund to do just this. “One hundred

percent of the funds collected will be used to

assist North Carolina’s dealership employees.

Thank you for your most appreciated support,”

commented Chairman Ilderton.

The application for the NADA Emergency Relief

Fund for dealership employees can be found

online at:

www.nada.org/Foundation/EmergencyRelief/

NCADA continues to send our thoughts and

prayers to all affected by the storm.
