Sign of the Times: ASA to Disolve at Year's End

(Press Release)
Monday, December 06, 2010

The Board of Directors of the American Shipbuilding Association (ASA) announced today its decision to dissolve the organization effective December 31, 2010. The decision comes after a review of the organization’s charter and changes in the industry landscape convinced the Board that another approach was needed to address the industry’s issues in Washington.

"The structural changes underway in the U.S. shipbuilding industry and the recent decision by Cynthia Brown to step down as president of the Association have afforded the opportunity to take a hard look at the direction the industry needs to take in the months and years ahead to ensure our voice is heard in Washington and across the country," said Fred Harris, Chairman of American Shipbuilding Association. "We concluded that the American Shipbuilding Association had served its purpose and that in light of the structural changes occurring in the industry, a new approach was required going forward. What that approach will look like will be the subject of ongoing discussions among the membership."
