During the Buzz Session in March, Berni announced a one-time Special Recognition Award for all Associates. This bonus takes advantage of the new tax laws and passes the benefit down to all Associates in acknowledgment of the team’s hard work in the service of our Members last year.
The one-time award will reward Associates for delivering value during a challenging year. Associates will receive an amount between $200.00 – $1,000.00 depending on their years of service with the Organization. The award is in addition to other performance based incentives, making for a lucrative spring for Associates.
The mission of all Associates is to help Members and other customers while achieving the business goals of the organization. Volunteerism enhances that primary responsibility by providing opportunities for volunteer and charitable activity as representatives of ACA.
AAA Club Alliance is committed to providing and participating in volunteerism opportunities that are local, regional, and across our footprint. Associates and their friends and families can connect with each other while providing impactful service to the communities and the Members we serve.
We are so committed to volunteerism in our communities, ACA offers Volunteerism Time Off (VTO). VTO is a paid leave benefit provided to active full-time and part-time Associates. Each year, every eligible Associate may take advantage of one full day paid equal to their regular work schedule.

Most drivers would never keep driving on a flat tire. They know it would be unsafe or cause harm to the vehicle. So when it comes to items like air filters, why would so many of us rather keep using them and ignoring a mechanic’s suggestion to have them changed?
Let’s brush back the dust and shed some light on your car’s air filters and why it’s important to keep them clean.
Engine Air Filter—Every engine burns a precise mixture of air and fuel in order to get where you’re going. Your car’s air filter cleans the air that is pulled from the harsh outdoor environment and into your engine, removing dust, dirt, and grime that would otherwise harm delicate internal parts.
A clogged engine air filter can impede the overall performance of your car and end up costing you more money over time. A dirty filter prevents your engine from burning the optimal air/fuel mixture, reducing miles per gallon, damaging spark plugs, and causing undue wear and tear on your engine.
While some mechanics will recommend you change filters every 3,000 – 5,000 miles or along with every oil change, others feel this is a bit excessive and recommend changing them once a year. The truth is, it largely depends on how much you drive and where you are driving.
Cabin Air Filter—Did you even know you had a Cabin Air Filter? This filter does the same thing as your engine air filter, but it addresses the air that blows into your vehicle, removing pollution and allergens from the air you breathe.
Your cabin air filter, while not critical for the performance of your vehicle, can have an impact on those riding in your car—particularly if they suffer from allergies. A clean cabin air filter means you’re breathing pollutant-free air. It also improves the performance of your climate control system and prevents dust and dirt from being blown around inside your car.
Celebrate pollen season by talking with your mechanic about replacing those surprisingly significant filters!
