ASA Announces New Agreement with Worldwide Connectors
|Linda Viar Ivanowski, left, celebrates her installation as president of ASA-Georgia with her parents.|
Last August, Linda Viar Ivanowski became the first woman to serve as ASA-Georgia state president - 50 years after her father, Howard Viar Sr., served in that same capacity. Viar's father-in-law opened Hollingsworth Auto Service back in 1917.
Ivanowski became involved in ASA in 2001 when she served as vice president of Hollingsworth Auto Service after the death of her brother. Viar became one of the founding members of IGO/GA in the 1950s, which then became the Automotive Service Council (ASC) and eventually came to be known as ASA.
Ivanowski served as secretary of ASA-Georgia's Savannah chapter in 2001 and in 2008 she became the president of the Savannah chapter and served in that capacity until July 2010.
At the ASA-Georgia and ASA-South Carolina annual meeting held in Hilton Head, S.C., Linda's parents, two sons and their wives, along with a new grandson, were in attendance for her installation as ASA-Georgia president. Ron Pyle, ASA president and chief staff executive, conducted the installation of Ivanowski and the other ASA-Georgia officers.
