    NAA Awards & Networking Dinner

    Start date: 22/09/2022


    The most important NAA event of the year is the Annual Awards & Networking Dinner, which is the best opportunity to network with fellow members over dinner and drinks. The attendee numbers grow year on year so make sure you don’t miss out in 2022…

    We will be returning to The Mere Golf Resort & Spa on Thursday 22nd September,  starting at 7pm

    We are pleased to announce that our Guest Speaker this year will be Steve Cropley, Editor in Chief at Autocar magazine.  Steve has been testing and writing about cars for nearly 50 years, half of that time at Autocar, the original car magazine. He trained as a journalist in Australia, came to the UK to join the staff of Car magazine in 1978, and became editor in 1981. In 1989 he launched his own magazine, Buying Cars, which was bought two years later by Haymarket Media Group, where he has worked “very happily” ever since. He claims to be as much in love with cars – and the industry that makes them – as he was on day one.
