The International Automotive Remarketers Alliance (IARA) is often referred to as “the voice of the consignor,” but it has also attracted auctions, service providers and all facets of the automotive remarketing industry who help implement the voice of the consignors.
Members of the IARA recently spoke out in regards to what makes Alliance so great and how it has benefited their lives and careers.
Here are just a few testimonials:
“I participate on the IARA Board because I believe very much in the spirit of volunteerism. I had been in this industry long enough and felt it was time to give back to this industry that has been so good to me and my career.
“Thanks for all you do.”
Executive Director, National Accounts
“As a member of IARA for eight years and chairman of the Membership Committee for six, I've learned a great deal about our broad industry of consignors, auctions, and service providers. There are endless benefits to belonging and most especially, participating in the many initiatives that IARA has to offer.
“Before I list the industry knowledge one gains in belonging, I must first mention the value of the comradery that a member experiences just by attending our meetings. As always, it's the people that bring the energy, experience and initiative to make us all better remarketer's. The bond is because we are all in the same boat paddling to gain the maximum value for the vehicles we come in touch with.
“Other benefits besides gaining more value for our vehicles are: standardization of processes, facilitating initiatives, benchmarking performance, sharing information on legislation and regulatory issues, continuing education and more.
“Jump onboard and reap the benefits of belonging to IARA!”
National Sales Manager, Institutional Sales
“The IARA provides the critical mass of leaders in the remarketing industry, sharing knowledge, skills, and abilities and ensuring best practices and leading edge ideas are realized.”

"My professional life has greatly benefitted from my association with IARA. All of the committee members, staff and attendees work hand-in-hand to provide answers to any industry challenges, questions and concerns that have arisen in my decade in this business. I also had the privilege of learning and connecting with a lot of great suppliers and consigners through roundtable and social sessions since I became a member of IARA. The entire organization, committees and board members make you feel connected and welcomed. I am blessed to be a part of such an amazing organization.”
