Member of the month: Jim Barlogio
Spotlight date: October, 2017
The ASCCA Membership Committee is proud to announce that it has selected Jim Barlogio of The Auto Shop Visalia as the ASCCA Member of the Month for October 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.
Jim started The Auto Shop Visalia in 1980, where him and his crew specialize in general repair. In 1987, Jim joined ASCCA and has been a proud member ever since. He enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters as well as playing in his band 'Jimmy and the Differentials.'
When asked how ASCCA has benefitted his business, Jim replied 'Many ways, especially meeting with other shop owners and learning from them as well as sharing. I also made some good friends throughout this organization like John Camara, who makes me laugh when he tells me stories about his encounters with customers.'
Jim also said that there are many things he loves about ASCCA. 'I love using TeamTalk and it comes in handy when I have important questions that I need answers to. I also like that I can get my customers to a great shop in the event they are traveling and their car breaks down. But most of all, I love the commodore I experience with my fellow ASCCA members.'
Thank you Jim for your ongoing commitment to ASCCA! Our organization and its members have benefited tremendously from your involvement, knowledge, and most importantly, your dedication. Congratulations!
