Member of the month: Bill Paterson
Spotlight date: February, 2017
The ASCCA Membership Committee is proud to announce that it has selected Bill Paterson of Sal Auto as the ASCCA Member of the Month for February 2017. 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.
Bill has been in the auto repair business in Sonoma County for 32 years, performing repairs and maintenance services on foreign and domestic vehicles. Last June, Bill closed his repair business of 30 years after he was asked to manage Sal Auto, a nonprofit shop that helps low-income single parents with their car repairs.
Bill joined ASCCA in 2012 after being invited to a meeting by Bob from Bills Auto Electric in Santa Rosa.
A member of Chapter 28, Bill was honored to be vice president last year, noting that he loves the comradery with the other members and considers them all friends. Bill says he is fortunate to be surrounded by professionals and educators in the industry.
“I am able to network with other professionals that teach me how to be a better businessman and shop manager,” said Bill. “We have excellent guest speakers at our meetings who are extremely informative about various aspects of the auto repair business. Through ASCCA, I am able to subscribe to the best support services that are sponsors of the association.”
Thank you Bill for your ongoing commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your involvement, knowledge, and most importantly, your dedication. Congratulations!
