|Why do you need the Powersport Dealer Association of Colorado?|
Lobbying: This is an important effort for every organization serving the powersports industry. We live in an age when special interests and well-financed opponents of the powersports industry can and do threaten our livelihoods and our lifestyles with legislative and regulatory restrictions, intrusions or exclusions. It is not an exaggreation of the truth to say that with one swipe of a pen, our worlds can be turned upside down.
Regulatory Watchdog: All of the powersports dealers in the state, and all the suppliers, consultants and vendors that work with them, have a vital and on-going stake in how the state legislature, various government agencies and other interest groups affect the fortunes of our industry. The industry needs an effective watchdog organization to protect the interests of powersports retailers and, by extension, the multitude of related organizations that serve the dealers and/or reach their ultimate customers through the dealer's efforts.
Public Land Access: Upcoming issues/concerns that could certainly affect the overall strength of the industry and that will be addressed by PDAC are the potential return of PIP-no fault insurance legislation, a movement to title ATVs and snowmobiles, the reform of Colorado franchise laws, restrictions on the sale of ATVs to minors and the continued vigilance regarding OHV riding in the state.
Dealer Assistance: PDAC also hopes to facilitate solutions fo rmany of the most frustrating business problems we all face, including internal and external security, personnel and purchasing.
