The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) received the Society of Collision Repair Specialists’ (SCRS) Affiliate Association Award April 19 in Pittsburgh.
SCRS Past Chairman Barry Dorn presented the award.
“The Affiliate Association Award is intended to recognize affiliates that stand as an example to others who exemplify exemplary actions on behalf of the collision repair professional,” Dorn said. “There are very few groups that we have ever awarded this to. In fact, it’s only been presented on five other occasions.
“AASP/NJ has spent decades focused on pulling together not just their own members, but also their peers in other associations. They have placed an emphasis on collaborating with other associations that stay on the forefront, and they have established themselves as a shining example throughout the Northeast. As the host of the East Coast Leadership meeting and the NORTHEAST Trade Show, as a vocal advocate for the collision repair professional in the state of New Jersey and beyond, AASP/NJ continues to impress and deliver.”
AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell and AASP/NJ Executive Director Charles Bryant accepted the award on AASP/NJ’s behalf.
“It is truly an honor for AASP/NJ,” McDowell said. “Not only for me, but for all the past members of the association who have done all the hard work to get us to where we are now. It’s for everyone who fought through all the struggles over the years. To be honored in this way is really wonderful.”
Added Bryant, “It is a real honor to be recognized for the things that we do in New Jersey. We do our very best to help all segments of the industry, and to be honored by a peer group like SCRS is very special to all of us.”
