Gruener’s Rise to Presidency Highlights ASA-Texas 2018 Annual Meeting

ASA-Texas’ recent day-long annual meeting was a success in terms of member attendance and participation. Owners of collision repair shops and vehicle/automobile service shops and their management/tech employees from throughout the state spent the day in professional development seminars, which were divided into two training tracks: management and new technologies. The seminars were wrapped around ASA-Texas’ annual meeting luncheon, which featured ASA-National Vice President Tony Molla as the keynote speaker.

Chris Murphy, ASA-Texas’ outgoing president, gave a state-of-the-association report and oversaw the election of new officers for 2019-2020. The newly-elected Board of Directors includes: Robert Gruener, President; Rod Burtch, AAM, President Elect; Kathryn van der Pol, Treasurer; Secretary pending; Chris Murphy, Immediate Past President; and John Firm, David Wolfe, AAM, and Glenn Young, AAM, Directors. The officers serve two-year terms on the Board of Directors.

The event featured a day-long series of seminars and a Sponsor Showcase, where attendees got a chance to visit with sponsor/suppliers and representatives of ASA-National. Sponsors included Advance Auto Parts, Auto Zone, Synchrony Financial, WORLDPAC Training Institute (WTI) and Automotive Training Institute (ATI).

It was a great start to the next phase of ASA-Texas’ growth and expanded services to our members.
