The ASAA was started as a volunteer MEMBER FOCUSED non-profit organization.  Unfortunately the profit to be made in this industry is so much that the big PROFIT giants want our organization.  We failed to file a franchise tax return thinking the State of Texas had recorded our EXEMPTION request.  They failed to advise us that they needed more information thus allowed us to default into a forfeiture status.  In attempting to reinstate our charter and comply with the additional information requested we learn that someone has filed and obtained a charter with our exact name.  This personal also owns one of the main FOR PROFIT players in the industry and refuses to return our calls.  The worst part is we have been referring notaries to them for years for supplies and renewing their commissions.  Until we can resolve this matter we have suspended all memberships and will be advising each of you of our status as we move forward.
