History & Purpose

The Toyota/Lexus Minority Dealers Association (TLMDA) was formed in 2001 to support the operational needs of ethnic minority Toyota and Lexus dealers. In 2013, the organization changed its name to the Toyota/Lexus Minority Owners Dealer Association (TLMODA) to better reflect the group’s support and development of diverse ownership in their Toyota and Lexus dealerships.

Through TLMODA’s leadership and resources, diverse Toyota and Lexus dealers are better positioned for growth, development and sustainability. TLMODA is committed to the success of our members, providing strategic support and business development resources that optimize opportunities for growth and economic sustainability. Our members are able to build strong relationships with fellow minority-owned dealers as well as Toyota/Lexus senior managers, resulting in a unique and productive network of like-minded professionals.
