NESDA has partnered with Mack Worldwide Warranty and SED International to offer an EXTENDED WARRANTY PROGRAM THROUGH MACK WORLDWIDE WARRANTY
NESDA members may now sell extended warranty coverage to their customers for products they already own, even if the original warranty has expired. The NESDA member will get the service call if the item needs to be serviced within the extended warranty period. Members, see information in NESDA Members Only to apply and set up access to this program. (Some restrictions apply.)
NESDA has also partnered with FleetCor Technology and is offering our members up to $.03 rebate per gallon on gasoline purchases and an additional $.03 rebate per gallon on purchases from Fuelman locations. This is Largest Fueling network in the industry (Anywhere that MasterCard is Accepted). You may check it out at: http://sitelocator.fleetcor.com/site/index?network=mastercard
New Member Packet
If you elect to continue your membership after the “free 30-day trial” you will receive an in-depth packet of goodies that will include such things as a NESDA member certificate, the current year’s edition of the ProService Directory & Yearbook, and a NESDA member window decal.
Another member program you will want to check out at the end of your 30-trial membership is The Buying Group (TBG), offering collective buying power through a group of suppliers including Staples, ADP Payroll, FedEx, and FWI Waste Management. For those members who pay a weekly pickup fee for shipping services, you will save more than $520/year plus about a 10% savings on the freight charge. Additionally, office supplies purchased through Staples are discounted from 8-32% when ordering through the Staples website using a TBG username and password.
The NESDA member Service Locator at www.TVRepairPros.com also offers your company its own listing. Members engaged in active servicing will want to be listed in the locator to help anyone needing service to find you. If you elect to continue your membership at the end of your 30-day trial, you may complete the online form here to have your contact information updated for inclusion in the locator. Anyone needing service may select a NESDA member and request a service call through this online feature.

TechMate — NESDA Online Tips Program
Please keep in mind that this is a “work in progress.” More manufacturers and more tips will be added as time goes on. TechMate currently contains about 40,000+ technical tips. We hope you find the program user-friendly. You may add tips to TechMate if you desire to do so, using the “Add Tip” feature.
Please be sure to Log Out of TechMate rather than just closing your browser. A limited number of concurrent log-ins are permitted.
Spare Parts — NESDA Online Spare Parts Database
This is also a “work in progress” because it changes depending on what our membership puts in. You may add your own spare parts to the Spare Parts Database and you will receive an email to the email address we have on file when another member is interested in your parts. You may add your own parts by clicking on the “Add Parts” link.
Please be sure to Log Out of the Spare Parts Database rather than just closing your browser. A limited number of concurrent log-ins are permitted.
NESDAnet Reference Forum
This is a fairly new feature of NESDA membership.
A log-in has been created for you using your first and last name as your username and the same password you received for NESDA Members Only. Your use of the forums constitutes your agreement to follow the Forum Rules. Also, do not forget to scroll down to the bottom of the sign-up page, view the Forum Rules, and check the box to indicate your acceptance of the Forum Rules.
The forums are a supplement to the NESDAnet email system, and do not replace it. The TechSupport list (described above) provides the fastest means available to receive technical support from your fellow members and the Discuss list (also described above) will continue to be the place to discuss industry issues privately with other NESDA members.
The National Professional Service Convention &
Professional Service Trade Show
Convention: August 3 – 7, 2015 (Monday through Friday)
Trade Show: August 5
Nashville Airport Marriott Hotel
THE Annual Event for Service Professionals
The annual gathering of NESDA members takes place for several days of meetings, training, and social events. Management seminars enable dealers to better understand all facets of business management. Technical seminars offer members a chance to learn and then practice those techniques through hands-on training. Although membership in NESDA is not required for attendance at the convention, many non-member attendees find it advantageous to join NESDA after attending a convention and seeing the benefits first-hand. If you pay annual dues for your first year of NESDA membership, you will receive a one person complementary convention registration. (Room, Board, Travel, incidentals not included.)
