During the AASP National Board’s semi-annual meeting in Las Vegas during the SEMA show, AASP elected its executive board.

 

The executive board included well-known industry professionals from around the country. AASP/MA President Molly Brodeur was elected as secretary/treasurer, and Bob Pulverenti, executive director of the Independent Garage Owners of North Carolina (IGONC), will serve as executive director chair of the national organization.

 

The role of vice president will be filled by AASP/NJ’s Tom Elder, and Bill Adams of New York will serve as president of the board.

 

AASP National’s administrator, Judell Anderson, CAE, shared, "The new executive committee is made up of stellar individuals with extensive experience and a commitment to advancing the industry. I am eager to work with them to strengthen AASP affiliates' capacity to better serve the auto service and collision repair shops that we represent.”

 

The newly appointed executive board members shared their reactions to being elected as well as their goals.

 

Brodeur said, “I am honored to serve as an executive board member of AASP National. My goal is to support the board as we provide information, educational opportunities and resources to our affiliates.”

 

Pulverenti shared, “I am thrilled that the members of the AASP National Board had confidence in me to fill the position. I would like to work to see all trade associations work more closely together and provide more benefits to members.”

 

Elder stated, "I look forward to being a part of the board and working to make a difference for our member shops throughout the country.”

 

Adams shared, “I am honored to be elected the new president of AASP. I look forward to working with the board and their members to provide them with my 30-plus years of business experience in the automotive repair industry. One of my main goals is to facilitate a dialogue with our affiliates across the country to see what works and what doesn’t as to how their associations relate to individual members. Along with that, I would like to expand the membership from areas around the country that currently do not have representation. The more ideas that we can bring to the table, the more of a positive impact we can have to grow business.”
