Peoria Metro New Car Deakers Association

Welcome to the Peoria Metro New Car Dealers Association Web Site!

Our New Car Dealers Association is rich in history, being incorporated in the Mid 1970s. Our objective is to promote leadership and awareness of the automotive industry in the Peoria Metro surrounding area. Through the Central Illinois Auto Show, the association has the ability to support various community activities.

One of our first community activities was supporting the "Bring Home the Duryea" campaign. The Central Illinois Auto Show is celebrating its 28th Anniversary which has enabled the association to make donations for the past 20 years. Additionally, in the past, the Association through the Auto Show has assisted the "Wheels for Work" program in conjunction with the Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service. The association has donated over 120 used vehicles to this program that benefits families in need of transportation in Central Illinois.

On the evening prior to the Central Illinois Auto Show, the Association holds the Peoria's First Look Auto Show Press Preview. Through this event, the Association has donated back to the community through various generous sponsors that also support our industry. Last year we donated $12,000.00 at our First Look Auto Show Press Preview Reception, benefiting the Journal Star Christmas Fund, CASA, INI Multiple Sclerosis Center, W.D. Boyce Council and Young Life. This year's recipients will receive their donations at the event. It is a wonderful evening at the reception, made possible by generous donations last year. This year the reception will again include a Press Preview Benefit. We could not make this happen again without our many retuning sponsors who make the event possible. Thank you!

The Association looks forward to the bright future of the Peoria Metro area. Please view our membership listing for the local dealership next to you. Don't forget to view the Central Illinois Auto Show for exciting details and helpful information about this year's event.
