MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to assure the continued vitality and competitiveness of the auto dealer industry in Georgia.

The Georgia Auto Brokers Association provides resources for used automobile dealers who do not own physical lots, also known as "auto brokers," particularly in the area of compliance. We also protect against current threats to the viability of the "auto broker" business model in Georgia.   

Auto brokers represent over half of the licensed dealers in Georgia. They serve the state in extremely valuable ways. They are job creators and small business incubators.  Furthermore, auto brokers create efficiency in the Used Auto Dealer Market in Georgia by providing vigorous competition. Competition benefits consumers and the industry at large. GABA is committed to defending any threat to this large cross-section of the used auto industry and the many ancillary industries such as insurance companies, auto auction houses, real estate management companies, and the finance companies which support the industry.


LEGISLATIVE SUPPORT

The Georgia Auto Brokers Association focuses its resources towards ensuring the continued vitality and competitiveness of the auto dealer industry in Georgia. We work with top government affairs professionals to defend any threat to the large cross-section of the used auto industry and its many ancillary industries.
