News: Last Chance for Collision Repairers to Grade Insurers
The Automotive Service Association (ASA) held its annual business meeting April 19 and 20 at the Hurst Convention Center in Hurst, Texas.
During the meeting, the association declared its plans to increase its visibility as the industry’s leader in the development of public policy for independent automotive repairers. In addition to the existing tools in place for ASA’s membership grassroots support, the ASA PAC and the Washington, D.C., office located on Capitol Hill the board reviewed a new design for ASA’s public policy advocacy website, TakingTheHill.com, which will launch soon.
“The board is committed to not only working more closely with each other, but also with our affiliated associations,” said Darrell Amberson, AAM, vice president of operations at LaMettry’s Collision, Minn., and ASA’s new chairman. “We recognize the strength of a national association goes hand in hand with the strength of our affiliated associations.”
Added ASA-Northwest Executive Director Jeff Lovell, AAM, “The changes that took place at the national business meeting show that ASA is a member-driven association, and the direction and excitement that came from this meeting demonstrate that ASA is headed in the right direction and the members are in good hands with the new board.”
