The American Supply Associationbelieves connecting and networking within all levels of an organization allows our members to become stronger; giving them the Ability to Grow.


Peer Networking Councils

To help members advance their ability and relationships, ASA offers four Peer Networking Councils to place members in direct communication with other member employees around the nation who have the same job functions along with the same challenges and opportunities. With a council that fits your needs, events and webinars are scheduled this year to help our members connect, build relationships and share best practices.

Following up on a successful event in January, showroom managers should mark their calendars for June 10 – 11 for an event in Dallas focused on “Driving Designer Business to your Showroom.” 


Finance Networking Council

The Finance Networking Council, especially for CFOs and others responsible for the financial management of an organization, has planned events in April as well as October. The October event will focus on the hot-button topic of taxes!


Training and Human Resource Council

The Training and Human Resource Council, tailored for those responsible for creating and implementing training programs, offers an in-person event in April on the topic of “Change Management,” as well as a webinar in June that asks the question, “What Makes Leaders Great?”


Logistics and Operations Council

Rounding things out is the Logistics and Operations Council. We’ll present two high-powered speakers in webinars exclusively for ASA members. Hear from Jason Bader in May on “Finding the Balance In Inventory Turns and Customer Service.” In September, Gene Marks talks about the latest manufacturing technologies that distributors need to know about.
