During the first meeting in Indianapolis, the Council elected Ken Weingartz as Chairman and Jim Herbert as Vice Chairman. The council also requested the establishment of an OPE Industry Relations Task Force specifically for OPE dealers.

The Council decided to engage with key manufacturers such as Toro Company, Cub Cadet/Stanley Black Decker and Stihl to foster communication and address concerns related to finance programs, inventory, pricing and the critical issue of battery products, including collection, recycling, disposal and shipping costs.

The North American Equipment Dealers Association (NAEDA) announced the development and implementation of the NAEDA OPE Dealer Council.

“The NAEDA OPE Dealer Council is critical to providing representation for OPE Dealers in North America and effectively addressing OPE dealer issues,” stated Kim Rominger, NAEDA CEO.

The establishment of NAEDA OPE Dealer Council is in the interest of OPE (Outdoor Power Equipment) Dealers across North America.
