Chapter 99's September Member Meeting Recap
Below is a recap of an exciting meeting from Dave Schedin of Chapter 99.
Chapter 99's Membership Drive Meeting at the Gold Hill's Golf & Country club on September 28th with guest speaker Walt Commans from ASE resulted in  TWO new members that night!
We expect a third shop to sign up next week! Our chapter goal was to get 5 new members this year and we are getting close!  
There were 20 attending including 5 new guests! The excitement was so high that when new Member Application Packets were offered to the guests, a young tech of an existing member (they drove 1.5 hours to get there) saw the value of ASCCA and wanted an application to join ASCCA!  
YES... the younger generation does WANT to join ASCCA! They long for community!  
Thank you Walt for your AWESOME presentation!!!! He covered the ROI of ASE Testing including increased productivity, lower comebacks and a more activated employee for those who are ASE Certified!
Good job Chapter 99!
