The Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS) announced Thursday it has decided to relocate its operations to a new state-of-art headquarters facility in Gainesville, Va., a suburb of Washington D.C.
ADS also announces its board of directors will continue to use the services of Amber Ridge LLC, a full-service association management and marketing company. ADS will continue to be led by Executive Director David Fehling, with ADS Director of Meetings Rosemary Hall and Mexico City office manager Virginia Morett maintaining their current roles. The Amber Ridge team will provide operational support, communications and membership services for the organization. The transition to the new location and new team is expected to take place in April 2018.
“The ADS board of directors is always seeking ways to advance the association,” says Fehling. “After a thorough review, the board unanimously and enthusiastically decided this move and new team will dramatically enhance the value of membership.”
“ADS has a long and proud tradition of serving the diesel service industry. We look forward to working with the ADS Board of Directors and fellow staff members to build on that tradition,” adds Casey Parker, COO of Amber Ridge LLC.
