The ASCCA Revenue and Benefits Committee is proud to announce that it has selected Maylan Newton of the Educational Seminars Institute (ESi) as ASCCA's January Partner of the Month. Each month, an ASCCA partner is recognized for their steadfast support of ASCCA, its members, and the automotive repair industry, and their commitment to ASCCA's Core Purpose: To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them voice.
ESi is a Corporate Partner and has been a member of ASCCA for 30 years. ESi is renowned for providing the independent repair shop with up-to-date full-facility training for their management team and personnel. All ESi training programs target development strategies that finetune and produce professional skills in automotive business owners and their employees.
When asked how his partnership with ASCCA has benefited ESi, Maylan replied, "The greatest benefit of our partnership with ASCCA is its members. The opportunity to interact with a diverse membership to improve our industry is huge. This helps us see the industry from a single person shop to a multiple shop operation. Each member brings a unique perspective to the industry and working together benefits all of us.
"If you want to reach the owners and operators of the automotive industry, this association is a must. Take it one step beyond and become involved, attend the chapter meetings, and participate in team weekends – that's when you really get the rewards.”
ESi's partnership also benefits ASCCA members by allowing them to receive special deals on training seminars. "Our experience working with hundreds of repair shops all over the United States allows us to bring the membership different thoughts, ideas, and ways of doing things. Sharing our experiences improves each members' business.”
During the year, Maylan speaks at as many chapter meetings as possible and enjoys meeting the chapter membership. He also helps ASCCA with their membership drives, open houses, and vendor fairs.
When asked about a favorite moment while being an ASCCA partner, Maylan replied "There've been many times in the 30 years that we have been members, that shop owners have come to us and thanked us for helping them change and improve their businesses. In some cases, shops are still in business today because of our relationship with ASCCA and that makes it all worth it.”
Thank you ESi for your enduring commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your knowledge and dedication throughout the years.
