ASA annual meeting in April in Texas
BEDFORD, Texas-The Automotive Service Association (ASA) will hold its annual business meeting April 20-23 at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas.
ASA President Ron Pyle will deliver the state of the association address, and a new chairman of the board of directors will be sworn in during the event. An Automotive Management Institute (AMI) class will be part of the agenda as will open meetings of the ASA affiliate assembly and board.
``Last year we returned to a business meeting-format after holding annual conventions for many years,'' Mr. Pyle said. ``It was a big success, however, several members said they had an interest in earning AMI credit whenever possible, especially in this type of environment where they can readily share their expertise with one another.''
