Information & Networking

Ask any AASP-MN member what the greatest benefit of membership is and they’ll tell you exchanging information and learning from their industry peers.


AASP-MN’s Annual Meeting & Convention, Golf Outing and other events allow you the opportunity to discuss everyday business concerns with other shop owners and suppliers.

B.S. Sessions (for collision shops) and Mech XChange events (for mechanical shops) are designed for shop owners and managers to get to know, visit and share ideas with other industry colleagues. Members can offer input on local and national issues, events and activities, and learn from others what is on the cutting-edge in their industry.

AASP News, the official publication of AASP-MN, keeps you current on industry issues and association activities. It is chalk-full of practical information, and tips and techniques to keep you one step ahead of the competition.

The association’s website,, is the go-to place for Minnesota’s automotive service industry. The website offers a searchable member database, complete with detailed shop profiles; an industry training and events section; consumer education; and a members-only resource center providing legislative information, help with regulatory compliance, sample documents, industry links, and member benefits/program information – and more!

There are also many personal and professional development opportunities available through committee and other volunteer service in AASP-MN.
