Listen to these testimonials from current members on the Value of ASA:
D.C. Representation for Mechanical & Collision Repairers
ASA is the only trade association that employs a full-time lobbyist in the nation’s capital to represent mechanical and collision repairers. Your membership dollars will help support the work of our Washington, D.C., office that constantly monitors federal and state legislative activity to provide regular updates about proposed legislation.
ASA fights for your interests and alerts you to the potential ramifications of legislative decisions for all independent automotive repair shops. By joining ASA, you increase our strength in numbers!
Here’s a Facebook Live that Bob Redding, our D.C. lobbyist, did recently on legislation in Missouri that would do away with its state vehicle inspections:
