Volunteers step up to study reshaping of NAEDA.

It can offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to assume a leadership role in positioning an organization for continued success - strengthening its foundation, refocusing its priorities, enhancing its value proposition and enabling its volunteer and staff leaders to focus on the goals and objectives of the organization.

The NAEDA Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF) has awarded $20,000 in scholarship funds to NAEDA Affiliate Associations for the 2014-15 academic year.  This year 121 scholarship applications were submitted by regional equipment associations.  All applications have to be originated and submitted through one of NAEDA’s affiliate associations.

These scholarship funds, coupled with matching grants provided by the sponsoring dealer and affiliate associations, are designed to help students who are interested in employment in the equipment industry attend schools and receive training so they can work for a dealership after graduation.  EDF scholarship funds are available to all employees or potential employees of NAEDA member dealerships.

The large increase of over 50% in applications this year raises a significant need for additional funds for EDF to match the growth in applications submitted from dealer members and the affiliate associations for current and future employees.  Please do your part to support the future of our industry by making a contribution online at or by check payable to: Equipment Dealers Foundation, 1195 Smizer Mill Road, Fenton, MO 63026.
