Member Benefits

The Association employs an Executive Director, Doug Daniel,  who gives all members top priority. He can help you with licensing questions, problems with your sales representatives, or any general concern you may have regarding your business. Doug is  constantly working with an array of companies in order to attain new benefits for our members. Your Association is just a phone call away when a question arises.

Your Board of Directors is made up of volunteer service station dealers and repair shop owners, just like yourself.  All of the Board members can be reached easily by phone to answer any questions you may have about your business, or the Association.

Your Association belongs to the New York State Association of Service Stations, based in Albany, and to the Service Station Dealers of America (SSDA), based in Washington DC. This provides us a pipeline into both capitols where decisions are made that affect your business and its everyday operations. We are constantly using these connections to keep you abreast of pending laws, rules, regulations, and legislation that you need to be aware of.  We continually attend political fund-raisers for the purpose of supporting our efforts to fight for positive legislation and to lobby against negative legislation.

We  distribute to each member a news bulletin, News & Views, that is full of updated industry news, member profiles, and management tips. This way you can be informed of every new development, current issues and any “hot” topics that may arise.

We sponsor clinics, educational training courses, and seminars. Some of these are in cooperation with the DMV or Morrisville StateCollege. These classes/seminars give technicians a working knowledge of the new technological changes and advances that are introduced into our industry so frequently.
Your Association is constantly striving to help our members prosper. As our motto states we are … “Stronger Together
