Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
The American Supply Association has elected John Strong, President and Owner of Economy Plumbing Supply in Indianapolis, to be ASA President for 2014. John Strong is the President and Owner of Economy Plumbing Supply Company in Indianapolis and was introduced as 2014 President at the American Supply Association (ASA) National Convention in October, 2013. John’s father, Herbert Strong, held the ASA presidency in 1996. They are the first father-son duo to hold the ASA presidency.
"To follow my father as President of our national association is a great honor and opportunity to continue his legacy of service and leadership; while working for continued success of the independent wholesale distributor,” John Strong said.
Economy Plumbing Supply Company has been central Indiana's wholesale and retail premier provider of plumbing supplies, bath and kitchen design products, and cabinets for home remodeling projects for over 80 years.
The American Supply Association is a nonprofit organization serving wholesale distributors and suppliers within the industry comprised of heating, cooling, piping, and plumbing.
John Strong had been serving on the board of directors for the North Central Wholesalers Association, one of the ASA regional organizations. John Strong was elected to the ASA executive committee four years ago and ultimately was elected ASA president in late 2013.
“I am very fortunate to come into the presidency where my predecessors have laid the groundwork for tremendous success and accepted relevance for ASA,” John Strong said. “The ASA has implemented many meaningful programs recently that have really hit the sweet spot for our membership and created great demand and success for our association's position in the industry. Education, Benchmarking, Advocacy and Member Networking are the four pillars of our success. My focus for 2014 will be to promote awareness and the ASA value proposition to the small independent wholesaler, like my company.”
As President of the American Supply Association, John Strong speaks on behalf of ASA at regional events in addition to attending national events, trade shows, and other industry events. He recently attended the Network ASA 2013: One Industry, One Voice, One Future. It was held in Washington DC and included over 500 ASA members meeting with their House and Senate representatives on Capitol Hill. He also attends related associations’ events such as the National Kitchen and Bath Association convention. One of the most important tasks he has been given as President of the ASA is government advocacy for small business.
“Although working with our elected leaders can be frustrating, ASA must maintain a presence on the Hill. We must provide consistent input in Washington to make sure our voice is heard,” Strong said. “One should not complain about Washington’s failure if you do not make an effort to effect change and be heard.”
