nada to re-launch its flagship web site

Today, NADA will re-launch its flagship Web site, www.nada.org.  The new site will be available by noon, Eastern Time.


This is a significant milestone in NADA's online communications program. NADA has spent months rebuilding the site from the ground up on a new technology platform to support the continued growth of NADA's Internet presence. A project team, consisting of staff from the NADA Public Affairs and Information Technology departments, along with outside technology vendors and consultants, planned and executed this large-scale project.


Keep in mind as you visit the site that this is a "soft launch," which means that we are not yet announcing it to the general membership. Some tweaks to the site are still being made.


The new-and-improved site includes:

  • A streamlined and simplified user login system, which works hand-in-hand with NADA's membership system;

  • A powerful site Search feature to improve retrieval of information from all NADA Web sites;

  • Enhanced layout and navigation to provide greater visibility for NADA's products, services, publications and programs.

An official announcement of the Web site re-launch will be made to the rest of the membership on Monday, January 22. The new site will also be the subject of a feature article in the February issue of NADA's AutoExec magazine and will be prominently featured at the upcoming convention in Las Vegas.


Thank you.

Jeff Carlson
Chairman, NADA Public Affairs Committee
