Fifteen industry professionals were present to learn about the new chapter.
According to ASA-AZ State Chairwoman Julee Baxley, “It was fantastic. We talked about the benefits our association offers and the reasons for becoming an ASA-AZ member. We also discussed tips on establishing the group and offered help over the next year as the new chapter gets off the ground.”
ASA-AZ started their new chapter in this rural area to encourage training, education, networking and information about new products to industry professionals who find it to be too great of a burden to travel two hours or more to attend association meetings in Tucson or Phoenix.
Baxley noted, “Those who attended were very excited and eager to grow the group, so we are very happy with the turnout and excitement.”
ASA-AZ is also eagerly looking forward to its Automotive and Collision Training Expo, which will be held June 9-11 and features educational seminars presented by outstanding industry trainers as well as a variety of networking opportunities. “Anyone can attend, and it’s a great way to check out our organization!” Baxley said.
