What Others Are Saying About IDA Membership

“IDA has always helped us keep abreast of what is occurring in the industry, it has been extremely helpful in providing contacts for us, and its programs such as safety, human resources, and best business practices have been timely and well received.

“The value of the information provided in these programs far exceeds the cost of our modest dues.”

- John Carl, Jr., Crawford Door Sales Company, West St. Paul, Minnesota

“Our annual participation in the IDAExpo has been very rewarding. We have always benefitted from attending the seminars and the networking opportunities provided that are virtually endless.”

Having our insurance program evaluated by the IDAssurance official was beneficial and the credit card processing service has been good for us. However, of utmost value to us is the long term friendships we’ve established with other IDA members. IDA membership continues to be a smart investment on our part.

- Tim Granlee, The Door Guys, Marion, Ohio

“Putting on my CPA hat, I can tell you that the annual IDA Dealer-FIT Survey provides us with a benchmark as to where we stand compared to companies that are similar to us.”

“The survey allows us to review areas of our company that need to be improved and establish a business plan to strengthen these aspects of our business. And, it is a free service for IDA members. To us, the program is huge.”

- Scott Siefke, Overhead Door Company of Northern Kentucky, Crescent Springs, Kentucky

“We attend the IDAExpo regularly and especially look forward to the educational aspect of the event.

“The IDA and the IDA Expo provide us the opportunity to get to know and network with some great people in this industry.“ The association enables us to keep up with industry hot topics, and learn how other dealers are coping with them.”

- David Ziegenhorn, Garage Door Company of Sikeston, Sikeston, Missouri

“From the early versions of Dealer-FIT and visits with Jack Landis, to the current educational offering at the annual IDAExpo, we have learned to be better business owners.

“Our industry and especially the IDA is actually a family – and - a family that cares for each other and is willing to share with each other.”
