The Automotive Service
Association (ASA) has announced that its board of directors has approved
an affiliation agreement naming ASA-Texas as its 15th affiliate.
"The ASA members
in Texas are a dynamic group of professionals and we couldn't be more
pleased to welcome them as or newest affiliate," said ASA chairman
Terry St. Pierre,
owner of The Muffler Shoppe in Abilene, Texas, and president of ASA-Texas,
said he is excited about the future of ASA-Texas and the direction it's
"At the start
of the affiliation process, my initial thoughts were that-as a statewide
organization-we needed ASA to survive these tough times," St. Pierre
said. "After seeing the strength of our state membership, the eagerness
of members to get involved and voice concerns, and realize our strengths,
I now believe ASA and ASA-Texas need each other."
