If you are a tanning salon owner, you know all too well that unfair government regulations are a constant threat to your business. Right now, federal and state regulators are discussing under-21 tan bans, taxes and other restrictions without any consideration of scientific accuracy or the harm it would cause business owners and their customers.
Fortunately, the American Suntanning Association (ASA) has had several thousand meetings in Washington, DC since 2013 on behalf of your business and this industry. ASA has also succeeded in defeating dozens of onerous state regulations and tan bans. For our industry to hold off these attacks, there are a lot of issues to cover and a lot of people to impact. Right now, ASA is working to repeal the onerous ten percent Tan Tax, to change the federal government’s position on UV light and to prevent harmful federal and state regulations. This sounds like a lot of work – because it is.
Fortunately, ASA has developed a well-organized team to manage this enormous effort. And though the ASA has a strong team working for you, there is still only so much this group can do without your help. To win this battle waged against our industry and your business, we need members and advocates from every state willing to join the ASA or make a phone call to their local member of Congress.
Becoming an ASA member is the most important way to help your salon association defend your business from federal and state government attacks. Your membership contribution only amounts to what you’re probably spending on your morning coffee. This is a small price to pay for the peace of mind knowing that your business is being looked after while you’re busy running your salon. By becoming a member, you invest in your future. Regardless of what industry you are in, an investment will need to be made to help secure the long-term investment you’ve made in your business. The ASA is the only organization that has the ability to actively represent you in Washington, DC and in every state.
You don’t need extensive knowledge of politics and relevant issues to become an ASA member or advocate. Through your membership financial assistance, we will handle these issues with our talented team of representatives and consultants. If you want to become an advocate, we will supply you with information and coaching that you need to feel comfortable and make your participation as impactful as possible. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
So, please email DaleP@americansuntanning.org right now. Let Dale know that you are interested in joining the ASA. That’s all it takes. The ASA has created a powerful organization to help defend and improve your business and we need your help. Please contact us today.
