The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has declared June 7-13 as National Automotive Service Professionals Week. This year marks the fifth anniversary of the weeklong recognition created to honor the commitment and dedication of automotive, truck and collision technicians and parts specialists.
“Twenty-three states issued proclamations honoring National Automotive Service Professionals Week in 2009,” says Trish Serratore, ASE senior vice president. “We will once again push to have all 50 states recognize the outstanding work done by automotive professionals across the nation.”
As in years past, ASE will provide a form letter and enlist the help of local shop owners in each state to petition their respective governors to mark this special week. “ASE created National Automotive Service Professionals Week to acknowledge the skill and dedication of the men and women who service and maintain the highly complex vehicles upon which we depend so much for our day-to-day transportation,” says Tim Zilke, ASE president and chief executive officer. “ASE is proud to help recognize these individuals for their commitment to their customers, their craft and the American economy.”
