ASA News Releases

Changing business climate underscores ASA’s need for change, relevancy.

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TEXAS – Jan. 5, 2022 – The Automotive Service Association has officially launched its new and innovative organizational model. 


ASA shifted to its new organizational structure as a result of a complex Affiliate dues structure. Realizing the need for a more simplified model, ASA implemented the changes, making it easy and more convenient for shops to join and have a better membership experience.


Blair Calvo, ASA’s vice president of Regional Services and interim executive director, said the new model would allow ASA to continue its strong advocacy efforts at the state, local and national levels. ASA is the only trade association representing independent repairers with full-time representation in Washington, D.C. 


“Removing the hurdles to joining will make it easier for other mechanical and collision facilities to join, which will help strengthen our numbers and influence on important legislative issues such as data access, electric vehicles, state vehicle inspections and others,” she said.


In addition to its legislative initiatives, the association will be focused on expanding its educational opportunities at the regional and national levels including these upcoming events:



“We understand that continuing to learn and grow is key to success as a business owner,” said Fred Hules Jr., ASA chairman. “ASA is proud to be the strongest and most established organization to provide valuable educational opportunities to help owners and their teams. As a business owner, I personally benefit from the training ASA provides. I’m excited to lead and be a part of helping our members run their businesses with confidence and great success.”


The Automotive Service Association (ASA) advances professionalism and excellence in the automotive repair industry through education, representation and member services. ASA is the largest and most established trade association representing independent automotive shop owners. Its new expansion will increase advocacy efforts, education, and training, along with offering easily accessible regional and nationwide training events. To learn more about the new and improved ASA, please visit or call (817) 514-2901.
