The 2012 SEMA Show featured a night to remember for hot-rodding professionals. The Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA) kicked off its annual industry reception in dramatic fashion, as Mike Kinney of Moonlight Auctioneering Services led the way through the council’s first-ever live auction to benefit the two charities supported by SEMA Cares: Childhelp and Victory Junction Camp. The live auction featured three participants from HRIA’s Pinewood Builder’s Challenge and got the crowd of nearly 700 into a bidding frenzy.
For its December issue each year, SEMA News puts out a call to
the leaders of the association’s councils and networks to seek their
views about what might be in store in the near term. These industry
professionals provide responses based on what their organizations and
their companies are seeing within their marketplaces. Their responses
are instructive and should provide helpful insights for businesses in
every segment of the marketplace.
Please join HRIA during their Long Range Planning Meeting as they will host an industry discussion and catered lunch.
