About Us

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.

ASA monitors issues at the state and federal level, identifying legislation and regulations most important to members. ASA’s D.C. office serves as an advocate on Capitol Hill and with federal agencies on behalf of independent repairers. ASA provides information and grassroots opportunities through its legislative website, TakingTheHill.org, and various association publications. ASA’s goal is to advance the plight of independent automotive repairers, protecting our members from legislation and regulations that may harm their businesses, and advancing those policies that make our members’ businesses stronger.
