About the Event: 

The Washington State Independent Auto Dealers Association (WSIADA) was formed in 1953 by a group of independent auto dealers who wanted to create a better industry. It was not until 1956 that the association had grown to include 150 members that the board of directors was created. The first known officers of the association were Don Medley, Sr. (Tacoma), A.B. Pearson (Everett), James Mercer (Seattle), and Claude Laycock.

In the following year, the association held its first state convention was held in Yakima Washington with the design to be a social meeting between members to get to know each other better and form family friendships that continue to flourish into the 21st century.
