The Equipment Dealers Association (formerly North American Equipment Dealers Association) is committed to helping dealers succeed.
On Sept. 28, 2012, California Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that will create the nation’s first state-run retirement plan for private sector employees. The legislation, Senate Bill 1234, establishes the California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Trust for more than 6 million low-income, private sector employees whose employers do not offer retirement plans.
The plan will require all employers with more than five employees to withhold 3 percent of employees’ pay unless employees opt out of the plan. The new retirement plan is designed to supplement Social Security and provide low-income workers with a portable savings plan with a guaranteed return. The plan will be administered by a board chaired by the state treasurer, which will select either a private investment firm or the state’s public pension system to invest and maintain the plan’s funds.

As a part of our ongoing effort to improve the value proposition for dealer members, the NAEDA Board of Directors recently decided to put Equipment Dealer magazine on a two- to three month hiatus while we work to expand the content and enhance the delivery of the publication. The “new and improved” magazine is a significant part of the associations’ ongoing communications initiative, which addresses our entire messaging platform – magazine, e-newsletter, web site, email and other key components.
