The NDIDA Board of Directors is pleased to announce enhancements to the 2016 NDIDA Convention that are designed to streamline the convention format and focus more intensely on dealership productivity and industry issues. This year’s annual statewide event will be held November 14-15, 2016, at the Ramkota Hotel in Bismarck. While much of the format will remain similar to previous years, the NDIDA Board has voted to implement the following changes: 1) The formerly 2 ½ day event will be shortened to 2 days; 2) Evening activities traditionally held on Monday and Tuesday evenings will be “flip-flopped,” with dealer line meetings and manufacturer dinners held on Monday, November 14, and the Annual Banquet/Entertainment held on Tuesday night, November 15; and 3) The convention will adjourn on Tuesday evening following the banquet, leaving attendees free to depart at their leisure on Wednesday morning. The convention program will continue to feature top-notch business and industry presenters, sponsor displays, and Courtyard hospitality. See the tentative agenda HERE, and watch for more information over the coming months, or visit www.ndida.com.

With the updates to the White Collar Exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) scheduled to go into effect on December 1, 2016, this is an ideal time for dealers to review their current workforce classifications and ensure compliance. In order to start this process, dealerships should gather existing job descriptions and ensure that they are (1) up to date and (2) accurately describe the duties performed by employees in each position, and then identify which dealership positions have been treated as “exempt” from one or more requirements under the FLSA.
