What to Expect at Auto Team America's Annual Summit and Forum

AutoTeam America (ATA) is proud to return to the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco, CA on January 24, 2019, to host its 6th Annual Dealership Buy/Sell Summit, immediately followed by the 25th Annual Dealer/CEO/CFO Forum.  It’s been four years since ATA hosted its annual event in the City by the Bay, and organizers are excited to be returning to the Julia Morgan Ballroom where ATA hosted it 2015 events.

Speakers, panelists, and sponsors for the events are still being finalized.  But the ATA Steering Committee is happy to announce the forum’s keynote speakers will be former White House Chief of Staff, Thomas F. “Mack” McLarty, who is currently the Vice Chairman of RML Automotive as well as Chairman of McLarty Companies, a fourth generation family transportation company.  McLarty is also a governor on the St. Louis Federal Reserve Board and chairman of McLarty Associates, an international strategic advisory firm.

What can attendees expect from the 2019 summit and forum?  Dealers, CEOs, and CFOs can anticipate industry specialists, including some ATA and associate members, who will present on topics that impact the automotive world.  Projections and forecasts for the year ahead will be offered, and current national trends will be analyzed and discussed.  You can expect representatives from large, well-known automotive groups to be among the presenters, as well as attorneys, financial advisors, and other specialists who serve the industry.

The summit will begin at 8:30 AM and conclude at 12:30 PM.  The forum will be held from 2 to 5:30 PM, and you are cordially invited to enjoy a cocktail reception immediately following the forum’s conclusion.
