Why Should You Belong to ASA Northwest?
Webster’s definition of association is “A group of people organized together for a joint purpose”. When you look at what we have in the Automotive Service Association, that definition leaves a lot out. In ASA Northwest, we currently have about 450 (and growing) member shops with another 100 plus allied members who have come together for a number of reasons.
We’re committed not only to the success of our own businesses, but our industry as a whole. As ASA members we see a multitude of benefits. Certainly, there are programs for discounts we can take advantage of for many of our business needs, but the reality is, a lot of us can find similar discounts elsewhere. So why ASA? One of the overwhelming responses we hear from a great majority of our members is, networking. There is no other vehicle that gives us the opportunity to come together and share our experience, ideas, struggles, and successes. Opportunities that range from local monthly chapter meetings, our semi-annual retreats, our fun events, to ASA Northwest’s Automotive Training Expo (ATE). Speaking of ATE, ASA Northwest members have first shot at the class schedule, and receive a discount on registration. That’s a benefit you can’t find anywhere else!
In addition to the advantages of training opportunities and networking with the best of the best, in ASA Northwest, we also have a free mentor program. No matter how good an operator someone is today, none of us came into our businesses with all the answers, and to have the chance to hook up with a successful shop owner who can help you build a solid foundation to grow from is invaluable. One more benefit you can’t find anywhere else! Another advantage is representation on the legislative front – ASA has an ear to the ground on anything our friends in government might be considering that could impact us.
We belong to ASA because we want to be a part of something that has a positive impact not only on our own shop, but the entire industry. We want to continue to grow and be successful. We want to be better. Not only have we forged numerous relationships that are helping us accomplish that, but countless friendships as well.
Why should you join ASA Northwest? The better question is, why wouldn’t you?
