The Automotive Service Association (ASA) recently held its 2016 annual meeting at the Westin Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Va. The meeting was held in conjunction with ASA’s Lobby Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., during which association leaders and members visited with elected officials and senior staff members about legislative and economic issues that impact the industry.

The three-day annual meeting opened with a welcome party for attendees sponsored by Federated Insurance, an ASA sponsored benefit provider, as well as open and closed board meetings, affiliate directors’ meetings, luncheon and networking events. Following the board meeting, the chairman and board members were sworn in for the 2016-2017 year.

ASA’s new board of directors began their terms at the close of the annual business meeting. Serving the second year of their two-year terms on the board are Donny Seyfer, chairman, Seyfer Automotive, Wheat Ridge, Colo.; Roy Schnepper, chairman-elect, Butler’s Collision, Roseville, Mich.; Darrell Amberson, immediate past chairman, LaMettry’s Collision, Minneapolis, Minn.; Ed Cushman, general director, C&H Foreign Auto Repair, Spokane, Wash.; and Scott Benavidez, collision division director, Mr. B’s Paint & Body Shop, Albuquerque, N.M.

In addition, Bill Moss, EuroService Automotive, Warrenton, Va., was reappointed to the board for a one-year term as secretary/treasurer; Bob Wills, Wills Auto Service, Battle Creek, Mich., was re-elected as mechanical division director for a two-year term; and John Cochrane, Cochrane Automotive, Etobicoke, Ont., was elected to a two-year term as a general director.

Dan Risley, ASA president/executive director, also serves on the ASA board of directors in an ex-officio capacity.

“Combined with our Lobby Day, the annual meeting continues to provide ASA and the collision and service repair industries a voice in Washington, D.C.,” says Risley. “We continue to build relationships and momentum on many of the key issues impacting our members’ businesses. This event provides the leadership within ASA – board of directors; collision and mechanical operations committees; and affiliated associations – an opportunity to shape the future of our industry.”
