Member of the month: Alan Yu
Spotlight date: March, 2018
The ASCCA Membership Committee is proud to announce that it has selected Alan Yu of GIC car Clinic as the ASCCA Member of the Month for March 2018. Each month, an ASCCA member is recognized for going above and beyond to support ASCCA’s Core Purpose: To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them voice.
Alan got his Mechanical Engineering degree from San Jose State University but found that he was no longer interested in that line of work. Soon he discovered that auto repair was something he was very good at and made the switch. Now, Alan and his wife, Helen Liao, along with Derek Yien, manage GIC Clinic where they specialize in general repair and maintenance on almost all makes and models.
A member since 2015, Alan says that ASCCA has benefitted his business in many ways. “Besides discounts and savings from being a member, the speakers at our monthly meetings are invaluable. Being able to meet and network with fellow shop owners has taught me a lot more about the automotive repair industry.”
Alan also said there are many memorable moments while being involved in ASCCA. “Being nominated as a board member was memorable. The funny antics that happen at the end of the year holiday party are also my favorite – some of the guys in our Chapter are hilarious!”
When asked what he loves about ASCCA, Alan replied “The food at the monthly meetings...just kidding. I love ASCCA because of the opportunity to meet and unite with other shop owners and improve our industry that has such a poor reputation.”
Thank you Alan for your ongoing commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your participation, knowledge, and most importantly, your commitment. Congratulations!
