LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: NOW IS THE TIME FOR SALES TAX FAIRNESS

We are seeing some progress on the push for federal fair sales tax legislation related to on-line sales. The NBDA actively supports reform so that those with brick-and-mortar stores are not forced to collect tax while their on-line competitors do not.

Now is the time to act if e-fairness is important to you as a bicycle dealer! Click here to learn more.

The American Booksellers Association, a primary supporter of this reform has built an extensive on-line resource library. Click here to see their "E-Fairness Action Kit".

INTERBIKE THANKS NBDA MEMBER DEALERS FOR PARTICIPATING AT THIS YEAR'S SHOW

Interbike management would like to thank all NBDA members who attended the 2011 show for their participation and support. By nearly all accounts the 30th edition of Interbike was one of the most memorable to date, and it wouldn't have been possible without the support of leading retailers.

Interbike is already hard at work planning the 2012 events, including educational content and show features designed to benefit retailers. As always, they will be working closely with the NBDA to deliver world-class events designed to help your business be more successful.

If you missed the show, Interbike has compiled a broad and eclectic list of links to the articles, photography, video and more from hoards of journalists that covered the 2011 show.
