ASCCA Announces New Program to Fund First-Time Team Weekend Attendees

Have you ever wanted to attend an ASCCA Team Weekend?

Ask almost any ASCCA leader what first ignited their passion for ASCCA, and chances are they'll tell you it was the first time they attended Team Weekend. ASCCA Team Weekends allow ASCCA members to exchange ideas with fellow shop owners, network with industry vendors, and build camaraderie with other men and women passionate about automotive repair.

To help engage new Team Weekend attendees, ASCCA is excited to announce a new program allowing first-time Team Weekend attendees to apply for a FREE one-night hotel stay during Team Weekend!

Will you join us at our next Team Weekend? Click here to download the brief application and, once completed, send it to the ASCCA office. The application will then be reviewed by ASCCA's Chapter Representatives Committee..

Featured Remarkable Results Radio Podcast - 
Andrew Emery from Antero Automotive

Andrew Emery started in the automotive business like a lot of aspiring technicians do, changing Oil. His first job as a lube tech was at Wal-Mart in the Tire and Lube Express. In a short time, Andrew made friends with most of the guys there. Himself and two other lube techs knew that we wanted to better our careers so we packed up and headed to Goodland Kansas to attend Northwest Kansas Technical School(NWKTS). Andrew completed courses in automatic transmissions, manual transmissions, and steering/suspension and alignment. By then, Andrew was homesick and transferred back to Denver and completed the master program at Denver Automotive and Diesel College, now Lincoln Tech.
