ASA Offers Early-Bird Registrants Chance to Win Free Hotel Stay for May ‘Taking the Hill’ Event

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) is offering a promotion to encourage attendance at its Annual Business Meeting and “Taking the Hill” Day May 9-11 in Washington, D.C. Register for the event by March 31, and you will be entered into a lottery for free hotel nights at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, the host hotel for the event.

Every meeting registration received that includes a room reservation at the Gaylord National will be entered into a random drawing for free hotel nights. The random drawing will be held at the ASA office April 4, and the winner will be notified immediately by e-mail.

Online registration is open until April 7 at the ASA event website. However, to qualify for this special promotion, participants must register by March 31.

In addition to providing secure, convenient online registration, the event website also includes summarized agendas and hotel information. Travel is the responsibility of each participant; ASA will make all hotel arrangements for attendees through the online registration process. The Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center is located approximately 15 minutes south of Washington, D.C., just off the Capital Beltway (I-95/I-495 at 201 Waterfront St., National Harbor, Md.)

The annual meeting features an Association Leadership Summit that is open to everyone. Presenter Mitch Schneider will focus on the difference between involvement and commitment.

ASA business meetings May 9-10 will include an affiliate assembly, a board of directors meeting, induction of the new ASA board and a state of the association presentation by Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive. The culmination of the annual business meeting will be ASA’s “Taking the Hill” Day May 11, allowing ASA members to meet with policymakers on Capitol Hill to discuss key industry issues.

Collision repair discussions will address the Federal Insurance Office and insurance reform; vehicle disclosure legislation and crash parts; and the EPA’s implementation of the automotive refinishing regulation.

“This is an opportunity like no other to invest in your future. Literally and figuratively, your voice will be heard on Capitol Hill, which can have a profound effect on this industry,” said Pyle. “It’s expensive to go to D.C., but it’s more expensive not to.”
