The theme of this year’s meeting is “Retaining Profitability While Remaining Compliant” and stresses the complexity of meeting your business obligations while still making it worthwhile to own and operate a profitable business.The topics to be covered in our seminars are a capsule of the issues that are impacting dealerships right now: regulatory compliance; wage and hour laws; employment law; identify theft; credit fraud; do-not-call laws; F&I practices; the Safeguards Rule; and Motor Vehicle issues, including the implementation of the up-front 4-year registrations on new passenger vehicles, beginning October 1.NJ CAR’s premiere event promises to offer something for everyone: Dealer Principals, GMs/GSMs/F&I Managers, Controllers/Office Managers and Service & Parts Managers. Additional Seminar Added: “What Your Dealership Needs to Know About the (Up Front) 4-Year Registration Fees on New Passenger Vehicles” Based upon the number of phone calls that NJ CAR has already received regarding changes to the calculation of motor vehicle registration fees, beginning October 1, we’ve added an additional seminar that will focus on the up-front registration fees. The 30-minute seminar will be offered twice during the NJ CAR Annual Meeting & Business Expo 2004, as follows: ·Wednesday, October 13, 4 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. ·Thursday, October 14, 4 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. The seminar will be open to anyone attending the annual meeting & business expo, including dealer principals and any of their key managers.
