Hear From A Member

It’s been a great experience connecting with fellow ASA members.  Our monthly Marketing meetings provide an open atmosphere where we can learn from one another and share some of our best practices which we all benefit from.  I truly appreciate what ASA is doing to help all of us grow our businesses.

Nikki Nixon  |  Director, Marketing, Hirsch Pipe and Supply Co., Inc.  


Connecting the industry’s leading distributors and their key employees to share best practices and solutions to problems with their peers on a regular basis is a powerful formula for success.


ASA is providing members that formula through CONNECT.  

Based on a proven facilitation concept, ASA has formed CONNECT communities, to give professionals in vital job functions an ability to meet virtually over the web on a monthly basis to discuss common challenges and provide practical solutions.  

These communities will virtually meet once a month to discuss a challenge introduced by one of the group members. Group members will then dissect the problem and offer solutions. At the end of each meeting, the spotlight peer will assimilate the suggestions and commit to a direction.  

Each monthly session will be led by Jason Bader and Marshall Jones from The Distribution Team.  They will work with the spotlight peer and lead each community in interactive best practice round table sessions where attendees can gain insight and learn from peers on critical topics.



CONNECT Registration

Each ASA CONNECT community is limited to 15 non-competing participants and will be filled
on a first come, first serve basis. As each community fills, ASA will open registration for
the next community in that job function.

Registration Fees:

ASA leadership is extremely excited about this exciting program and the value that it offers our members. Therefore, they are waving the fee to register for these CONNECT communities in 2020.
