The Automotive Service Association (ASA) advances professionalism and excellence in the automotive repair industry through education, representation and member services. Our Washington, D.C., office – located just steps away from the U.S. Capitol, U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives office buildings – is ASA members’ link to the legislative and regulatory issues that are most relevant to automotive repair businesses.
