ASCA: Accredited Snow Contractors Association

ASCA, the Accredited Snow Contractors Association, was formed in 2012 to provide professional snow contractors with a formalized education to reduce risk in the industry and to change the laws that drive insurance rates up and create imbalance, unfair competitive practices, and safety issues for the snow and ice management industry. In helping members (property managers, insurance companies, and legislative bodies) meet these goals, ASCA is comprised of four pillars: written industry standards, education, verification, and positive legislative change. Standards from ASCA are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: [email protected] or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.
