December 19, 2006

McLean, Va. — The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) will hold its third-annual breakfast for women dealers, in conjunction with the 2007 NADA Convention & Exposition in Las Vegas, on Saturday, Feb. 3, 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., at the Wynn Hotel.

The event will provide female new-car and truck dealers with a forum for networking and discussion with their peers and industry leaders.

"The women's dealer breakfast has proven a great success, and we're very pleased to offer it again," said NADA Chairman William Bradshaw. "NADA is committed to helping women dealers grow and thrive in the industry, and this event is one way we're working to advance that goal," Bradshaw added.

Keynote speaker Bonnie McElveen-Hunter, CEO and owner of Pace

Communications, chairman of the American Red Cross and former U.S. Ambassador to Finland, will share her business insights gained from leading the largest private customer publishing company in the U.S. Pace Communications serves an array of Fortune 500 companies, such as United Airlines, US Airways, Radisson Hotels and Toyota.

McElveen-Hunter is the first woman to serve as chair of the American Red Cross, in honor of her philanthropic and charitable-cause work. During her term as U.S. Ambassador to Finland, she led the Helsinki Women Business Leaders Summit in 2002, helping to advance entrepreneurship in the Baltic region and Russia.

Marcy Maguire and Kathleen Sims, NADA directors-at-large representing women dealers, will host the event.
