As part of its new organizational model, ASA announced the promotion of Blair Calvo to vice president of regional services. Calvo was previously director of member services and has been with the association since late 2019.
She has many years of extensive association experience, working in every department for professional and trade associations in the real estate, construction and dental industries.
“In all my years of working for trade associations, working for a national association has been a dream of mine, and I’m grateful to ASA for this opportunity to grow and evolve the organization during a pivotal time in its 70-year history,” she said.
In September, ASA announced it is transitioning to a new and innovative association model, leveraging its expansive history to create a single, unified industry voice. Under this new model, a 50-state regional structure will take place. The re-envisioned regional structure will allow the organization to expand its reach and improve member opportunities including advocacy, education, events and training for independent repair shops across the country.
Calvo will oversee the implementation of the new membership model, including managing six regional executive directors, along with overseeing membership, marketing and events.
