ASA-Midwest is excited to announce the launch of a brand new Student Membership. With the debut of this new membership, ASA-Midwest aims to connect the future of the automotive service industry with current industry professionals. The goal of the initiative is to prepare and equip students with the skills and resources necessary for the transition into the automotive service profession while introducing them to training opportunities and success strategies.

By giving students the opportunity to be involved in ASA as they are just beginning in their career is a great way to help prepare these new technicians by helping them understand what is expected of them and also having access to additional training," says Ken Jefferson, Automotive Technology Program Chair at Southeast Community College in Lincoln, Nebraska, "It also can help them begin building contacts and a support for their chosen field."

The program, which launched October 1, provides students access to monthly chapter meetings in their area, resources and industry news provided by the association, networking events with area automotive service professionals as well as numerous training opportunities throughout the year.

"This will be a great opportunity for those just entering their automotive career to become a part of the best Personal Learning Network (PLN) out there," explains Tim Dwyer, automotive technology instructor at Oklahoma State University's Institute of Technology, "Thank you for understanding the need to start building this relationship between students and industry early."

This free membership opportunity is available to students currently enrolled in a high school,vo-tech, or college automotive technology program within Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, or Oklahoma.

The ASA-Midwest student membership program reflects ASA-Midwest's commitment to the industry and efforts to bridge the gap between students preparing to enter the work force and current shop owners. It will not only benefit the participants, but will foster a lasting partnership between the student and professional as we work together for a better tomorrow.
