Meet the 2011–2012 SEMA Board of Directors

As a trade association, SEMA is governed by an elected Board of Directors—individuals who volunteer their time, talent and industry insight to guide and lead the organization. All members serve two years, with the chairman-elect automatically assuming the role of Board chairman after completing his or her two-year term. For the 2011–2012 term, Paul “Scooter” Brothers of COMP Performance Group becomes SEMA Chairman of the Board, with Nate Shelton of B&M Automotive Group serving as Chairman-Elect. The current SEMA Board of Directors totals 27 members.

An Interview With the New Chairman of the SEMA Board of Directors “Scooter” Brothers has been working with cars since he could walk.
