      Maggi,
      I like your evaluation of the DEAC acronym, but it really is Dealers Election Action Commity.

        Thanks, Judy, but I still don’t know what we’re talking about. What the heck is a Dealers Election Action Committee? What does it do? How does it show itself? Who does it encompass?

          Maggi,
          The Dealers Election Action Committee,is the NADA’s(National Automobile Dealers Association)political action committee,it helps dealers contribute to the political election campaigns of pro-business, pro-dealer candidates for election or re-election to the U.S. Congress.
          If you want more information you can go to their web site at NADA.org and check out DEAC.
          Bob as a new car dealer belonged to NADA and Deac. I hope this helps.
          Judy
