The Greater Lehigh Valley Auto Dealers Association was formed to invest in the great place where we live and work by stimulating regional auto sales and supporting selected nonprofit organizations. GLVADA, a nonprofit association of more than 40 local dealerships, benefits the local economy by encouraging car buyers to shop in the greater Lehigh Valley. This, in turn, spurs job creation, business growth and increased municipal revenue.
