ASA Pennsylvania Leaving ASA, Joining MWACA
Nov. 30, 2021—ASA Pennsylvania has unanimously voted to join the Midwest Auto Care Alliance (MWACA) and operate under the name Mid-Atlantic Auto Care Association, according to a press release.
The organization will expand its territory to include Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware territories.
The decision was in response to all ASA affiliates having their affiliation terminated by the Automotive Service Association in September, the press release said.
Mid-Atlantic Auto Care Alliance join ASA Northwest, soon to become Northwest Auto Care Alliance and ASA Illinois which will become the MWACA Greater Chicagoland chapter. These changes become effective on January 1, 2022.
“This is the best decision for our members going forward. MWACA has had a clear path of success over the last 3 years since they left ASA. They clearly have a better sense of direction and are willing to help the alliances who come on board. Their unique and value-added benefits and services offer a better bang for the buck for our members,” Ross Colket, president of ASA Pennsylvania and owner of Colket Automotive Technical Services in Landale, Penn., said in a statement.
Mid-Atlantic Auto Care Alliance will continue to have its association’s activities and finances managed locally by the local board.
