The ASCCA Membership Committee proudly announces Dave Kusa of AutoTrend Diagnostics as its ASCCA member of the month for October 2019. ASCCA regularly honors members who demonstrate ASCCA’s core values of integrity, compassion, professionalism, and unity. Along with these core values, Dave also embodies ASCCA’s core purpose: To elevate and unite automotive professionals and give them voice.
Dave started as a tech in 1983 after attending De Anza College Auto Tech. After purchasing his shop in 2001, he has grown his business and the shop now has two techs and a service manager.

In his work with the Government Affairs Committee, Dave advocates with local legislators on behalf of small businesses and their employees. His contributions to ASCCA leadership have been a huge resource for members over the years, and in the last few years he has helped ASCCA pass and defeat key bills on behalf of our industry including ASCCA’s efforts to kill the Tire Tax Bill among other recent successes.
When asked about his favorite part of belonging to ASCCA Dave said, “Spending time with and learning from the greatest minds in the industry.”
