Following approval by North American Retail Dealers (NARDA) members, a merger agreement with the United Servicers Association (USA) has been completed and signed by both associations. The Board of Directors of NARDA and USA announced plans earlier this year to merge the two associations into one not-for-profit trade association.
As part of the merger agreement, USA will become Service USA, the Service Division of NARDA and one of six divisions of the association. The other divisions are: Appliances, Business Development, Education, Electronics, and Furniture. Each division will be overseen by a NARDA Director and charged with providing programs that benefit members. USA will assume a Board seat with oversight of the Service USA Division. Elections for the NARDA Board are planned for this fall.
