Dear Colleagues,

Grading Working Group

The NAMA Grading Working Group met yesterday, Thursday 27 June, to discuss a number of key items including appraiser training and reaccreditation, audit and future directions of the grading scheme.

To those using the NAMA grading, we will issue new grading licenses soon. We will keep you updated.

Auction Market Attitude Survey

Finally, a reminder that the latest NAMA Auction Market Attitude Survey has now been circulated. We would appreciate if you could complete the survey at your earliest convenience. Your feedback is extremely useful and also enables us to comment on the market.

NAMA Executive

The next NAMA Executive will be taking place on 9 July in London. If anyone would like to attend, please let us know. There will also be a full member meeting on 14 November at Aston Barclay Wakefield. Invites to all our members will go out in due course.

Grading Appraiser Courses

There are dates available at Stephenson College for our Appraiser Courses. If you would like to book a space, please contact Susan Munslow on 01788 538 304.

PR and monthly newsletter

We would like to continue to share more of our members’ ‘good news stories’ on key areas affecting your business. We would be particularly interested in reports from your business that might include record sales weeks, sales with interesting vehicles or vendors, employee achievements, charity events or anything you would like to share with your fellow NAMA members and the wider automotive industry. Please email any stories you want included in the newsletter by the 20th of each month to our press officer

If would like to be involved in the initiatives above or have any further queries, please let us know on 01788 538336 or email

Louise Wallis
Head of NAMA
