The Copier Dealers Association, or CDA, is an association of approximately eighty independent imaging dealers across the United States and Canada. CDA has earned a national and international reputation as being comprised of the most successful business owners, representing products and services on the leading edge of business technology.
By coming together multiple times per year to share best practices, business strategies and financial benchmarking with their peers, CDA has established a platform through which the exchange of ideas and concepts for the improvement of all its members is possible. Originally, the respective member companies dealt primarily with the copier industry, but today, topics have expanded to include document imaging, print management, managed network services and software solutions.
In addition to CDA members sharing successful processes with the group, leading industry analysts, consultants and marketing experts present to the organization. Topics include technology, sales strategies, organizational structure, business management, legal issues and industry trends. Additional meetings held throughout the year include meetings for Service Leadership, CFOs and Managed IT Services.
Its members also participate in a financial survey to provide comparative data to all members, allowing companies to compare their organization to like-sizebusinesses. CDA primarily operates on a geographically exclusive basis, inviting members to openly discuss business strategies and execution methods.
