Deadlines for Applications

NAAA’s membership consists of 355+ domestic and international auctions. Our average member auction operates a full-service, seven-lane facility on 70+ acres and employs over 130 people with a $3+ million payroll. With sales totaling over 9.9 million units, our member auctions generate wholesale revenue of more than $107 billion annually.

In addition to our regular auction membership, you’ll find NAAA has over 142 associate members who represent a wide range of remarketing-related fields, such as financial institutions, insurance agencies, leasing companies, accounting firms, trade publishers, product manufacturers, equipment suppliers, state automobile dealer associations, and others.

There are two types of membership:

Auction Membership—Regular
An Auction (Regular) Member is defined as ‘any person or entity actively engaged in the wholesale auto auction business whose operation complies with Federal, State and local laws, and principally provides auction services to buyers who are licensed motor vehicle dealers, and to sellers, in wholesale transactions involving motor vehicles that are not salvage, rebuilt or junk.’ Additionally, there must be an established place of business offering weekly dealer only sales.

Associate Membership
An Associate Member can qualify in one of three categories: Supplier/Publisher*, Remarketer** and State Independent Auto Dealer Association. Associate members have the same privileges as auction members except they may not vote or hold office in the Association. Associate membership is initially granted on a probationary status for two years subject to annual review for compliance with the Association’s by-laws, rules and procedures.

* Supplier/Publisher is defined as person(s) or entity offering goods or services to member auctions.

** Remarketer is defined as any person(s) or entity engaged in remarketing motor vehicles through auction members.
