“Members need to get more involved in the association. If one person doesn’t do their part, oth-


ers will have to take up the slack,” says Hopper. “We’re the only ones who represent our industry, and there is no substitution for experience.” Hopper has been a very active member of ARA and other organizations. He previously served as At-Large Director of ARA and was President and Southwest Director for the Arkansas Automotive Dismantlers


and Recyclers Association (AADRA). As part of his work with ARA’s Governmental Affairs Committee, he was chair of the National Motor Vehicle Titling Information Systems (NMVTIS) work group and sits on the Department of Justice’s NMVTIS Federal Advisory Board.  Jim Jennings is the ARA Director of Communications and Public Relations.
