Program overview

Since its founding in 1917, the Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association (WANADA) has its primary mission to represent and promote the retail automobile industry in the Washington Metropolitan area. Through a wide range of community programs and events, public policy and industry representation, and ongoing dealership management and benefit programs,

WANADA and its franchised new car and truck dealer members are well positioned to meet the 21st century challenges of a booming regional economy and an industry in transition. A National Model Program is its Automotive Technician Training Program (ATTP) of the organization’s “Automobile Dealer Education Institute” (ADEI) with a mission to offer advanced automotive training and educational programs for promising high school and college age students as the next generation skilled workforce.

Designated one of the nation’s top five auto shows by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (IOMVM), The Washington Auto Show includes cutting-edge exhibits, latest model automobiles, trucks, and recreation vehicles, with displays of historic vehicles. Often referred to as the “Public Policy Show” on the auto show circuit, the 10-day public show is preceded by two Public Policy Preview Days of special events and announcements for officials in government, industry, and the media.
The Washington Auto Show is also the largest public show in Washington, D.C. Over the course of its over seven decades of service this beloved and historic D.C. tradition has attracted Washingtonians of all socio-economic backgrounds, driving skill levels, and political affiliations. On display are more than 700 new models from over forty-two [42] national and international manufacturers. This year the Public Show is from Friday, January 27th through Sunday, February 5th, 2017.
The Washington Automotive Press Association (WAPA) promotes education and professional awareness in the field of motor vehicles regarding both manufacturing and regulation. The organization seeks to enhance and encourage professionalism of journalists and specialists in automotive and related fields.

WAPA was founded in 1985 by local television, newspaper, and radio journalists covering the automotive industry along with testing and reviewing new vehicles. The organization then, as now, attracted members from manufacturers, safety agencies, automotive related organizations, trade associations, and the media.

WAPA members are invited to monthly luncheon meetings for presentations from manufacturers, publications such as Consumer Reports, technology briefings, and new industry technology advancements, and advanced energy efficiency enhancements. In addition, WAPA hosts two major events each year; a networking Gala in March and a vehicle ride-and-drive Rally in October.
