Friends of ASTS

A new initiative for small businesses and members who would like to support ASTS but are not able to contribute at the Industry Partner level is now available.  We are offering the Friends of ASTS program which provides recognition to those who contribute $50.00 or multiples of $50.00 annually to ASTS.  The Friends of ASTS will not have the same web site privileges that Industry Partners will be provided, but will be given a special certificate that can be posted in their offices.  Registration for Friends of ASTS is available on the ASTS website and we will have forms at the SkillsUSA Conference
