Helping service managers discover payment solutions for their auto dealerships is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. If I can address a dozen or so in one place, then I’ve increased the odds of finding personal satisfaction that many times. A recent meeting of the San Diego GM Retail Service Manager’s Club, a division of the New Car Dealers Association San Diego County, offered such an opportunity. A longtime proponent of trade associations, I wrote an article called "Ten Reasons to Join an Association" in 2012, explaining the numerous benefits (see inset).
