ASA News Releases Advocacy News Releases

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX – June 4, 2020 – A month ago, ASA held Volume 1, No. 1 of its Automotive Virtual Industry Professional (VIP) Forum. During it, ASA released the results of its initial Business Survey & Stimulus surveys. The results helped us gauge how auto repair shops were faring in the wake of COVID-19.

Now, at 11 a.m. CT on Wednesday, June 10, ASA will follow up, including the release of results of its second set of surveys during Volume 1, No. 2 of ASA’s VIP Forum. The free one-hour online forum is aimed at helping repair shop owners – and others – better understand how to succeed in such dire times.
