ASA Announces Two New Partnerships

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced two new partnership agreements with the Automotive Service Councils of California and the Florida Automotive Trades Association. The opportunity for industry groups to participate in such partnerships is a result of ASA's strategic plan, according to Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive.

BEDFORD, TEXAS — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced two new partnership agreements with the Automotive Service Councils of California and the Florida Automotive Trades Association.

The opportunity for industry groups to participate in such partnerships is a result of ASA’s strategic plan, according to Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive. “In 2003, ASA asked its affiliate organizations to adopt the ASA name as part of their title. Groups selecting to maintain their established identities continue to have strong relationships with ASA, but under a partnership agreement,” said Pyle. “While their membership is best served by retaining an identity distinct from the association, they also recognize the value of partnership with ASA. We’re pleased to maintain our strong bond with both groups.”

Headquartered in Bedford, Texas, ASA currently has 16 affiliates throughout the U.S. ASA is the largest not-for-profit trade association of its kind, serving more than 12,000 businesses and approximately 65,000 professionals from all segments of the automotive service industry.
