COLLEYVILLE, TEXAS, Dec. 10, 2013 – The Automotive Service Association (ASA) board of directors has approved an affiliation agreement naming ASA of PA as its 13th affiliate.
“The ASA members in Pennsylvania are a dynamic group of professionals and we couldn’t be more pleased to develop a strong affiliate group in that area. Whether we’re joining forces representing repairers or providing communications and money-saving benefits, working together at the local level allows us to expand the value of membership for each individual,” said Darrell Amberson, AAM, ASA chairman.
