This July, ASA is partnering with Dell Technologies to host a summer membership drive designed to bring the benefits and value of ASA membership to more independent shops across the United States.

The patriotic-themed membership drive – “Independence for Independents” – will be held July 1-31. During that time, independent shops across the country that join or renew (if their membership has lapsed) will be entered into a contest to win cash prizes or a 49-inch Dell curved monitor.

You can also gain entries by submitting a video on how your shop uses technology or attend one of several educational webinars that ASA is offering in July as part of its popular Webinar Wednesday series.

We both see that our members are always trying to improve themselves. And what better way than to win a 49-inch curved monitor for our multi-tasking shops by entering our contest?!”
