Did you know that the ASA donated $5000 to the Alberta Red Cross flood relief? We all know someone who was affected by the Alberta flood this year and the ASA felt it was absolutely necessary to help. This donation would not have been made possible if it wasn’t for the success of the 2013 ASA Trade show and to all of our committed ASA membership.
