BEDFORD, TX — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) board of directors has named ASA-Texas as its 15th affiliate.
“The ASA members in Texas are a dynamic group of professionals and we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome them as our newest affiliate,” said ASA Chairman Kevin Caldwell, AAM. “Whether we’re joining forces on legislative issues or providing communications and benefits options to members in Texas, working together allows us to expand the value of membership for each individual. ASA is a member-first organization, and we’re eager to demonstrate this commitment to ASA-Texas.”
Terry St. Pierre, owner of The Muffler Shoppe in Abilene, Texas, and president of ASA-Texas, said he is excited about the future of ASA-Texas and the direction it’s headed. St. Pierre said he encourages all service professionals to grow their local chapter, which will in turn grow their state groups, which will grow ASA on a national level.
“At the start of the affiliation process, my initial thoughts were that, as a statewide organization, we needed ASA to survive these tough times,” said St. Pierre. “After seeing the strength of our state membership, the eagerness of members to get involved and voice concerns, and realize our strengths, I now believe ASA and ASA-Texas need each other. We plan to make history each day by building the best association ever.”
Charles Parker, executive director of ASA-Texas, said he is pleased that AASP-Texas members voted to return to ASA.
“The voting results prove the dedication of our members to move toward an active and healthy association in Texas,” said Parker. “We are now positioned to provide the ‘best of the best’ for all members in Texas. I commend the staff at ASA for their dedication and commitment to making the transition from AASP-Texas to ASA-Texas smooth and am looking forward to working with all ASA members in Texas.”
