The International Automotive Remarketers Alliance (IARA) has announced a new, annual dues fee and structure. The new annual fee, effective immediately, is $1,250 for all renewals and new members. All membership fees and renewals are due the first week of January.

According to the IARA, the purpose of the new fee is to streamline the process with an affordable uniform fee structure ($1,250) that avoids payment classes among its membership.

The redesign of the Alliance’s website is nearing the testing phase. The site will be more intuitive and provide greater functionality for members.

Paying membership dues at the website is one of the many conveniences.

Paying for and obtaining certification courses will be another automated process provided by the new design. The IARA expects the website to be fully functional early in the first quarter of 2014, just several weeks away.

“There is no better time in history to become a member of the IARA than right now! Let your voice be heard! We urge everyone related to the Remarketing Industry (financial institutions, fleet and lease consignors, auctions, and all vendor and support companies) to include IARA membership in their 2014 budget,” said Tony Long, the IARA’s new executive director.

Anyone who joins or renews right now will be sure to receive important notices and be included on the Alliance’s membership list when the new site is revealed.

All inquiries may be directed to Tony Long at
