Cindy Brown, Connie & Dick's Automotive Service, Claremont, CA


In her own words: "Scott, my husband and I have owned Connie & Dick's Automotive Service Center, Inc. since 1996. My husband inspired me to become more involved in our business about 10 years ago. Almost 5 years ago he told me he had a wonderful opportunity to help take IATN (a second business) to new levels and I have been running Connie & Dick's Automotive, Inc. since.


Running our shop has been a huge learning curve for me. I had to step into some big shoes (Scott's), so I re-branded our business as woman-owned-and-run and continued with great business training classes and attended trade shows with training.


It's been a wonderful experience, my customers love knowing I run the business and my employees have expressed very positive feelings too.


ASCCA has been a part of our world for as long as my husband has been a Tech. It's an honor being part of an association dedicated to the improvement and growth of our businesses and our industry. ASCCA keeps me updated on what's going on in the state and in my own backyard - giving us a voice in legislative matters.


The discounted programs and services offered ONLY to ASCCA members can really add up. My membership dues are much less when I take into account all the great savings from ASCCA benefit providers. With everything ASCCA has to offer my favorite benefit is our Chapter meetings (I'm Vice President of Chapter 14), each month we get to meet and network, talk about our month, share marketing ideas, and just know that everyone goes through the same things - or it can just lift someone up who needs it.


To those thinking about joining ASCCA, what are you waiting for? This is the best decision you will ever make for you and your business. You will meet and make some of the best friends in your life. You will find a chance to grow in your Chapter as well - so get involved and help out anyway you can!" 


ASCCA members like Cindy are shining examples of how One Member CAN Make a Difference!
