What is HRIA?
HRIA, the Hot Rod Industry Alliance (formerly SRMA, the Street Rod Marketing Alliance) is a section of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA). HRIA is dedicated to addressing the challenges facing this segment of the automotive aftermarket and to preserving and promoting the hot rod industry.
Who Makes Up HRIA?
All entities serving the hot rod market, be they manufacturers, builders/fabricators, dealers, car clubs or enthusiast publications, should be HRIA members. In fact, it is critical that as many companies as possible become involved. Once in HRIA, members work through subcommittees to focus on the group's educational, legislative and communications needs, as well as on membership and promotional activities.
What Are HRIA's Goals?
HRIA's primary objectives are to ensure the future prosperity of the hot rod industry and to advance and promote awareness of the hobby. Within this context, HRIA focuses on industry-specific issues, developing effective strategies and programs that will assist members in improving their business practices and procedures. HRIA also works with HRIA's legislative staff to address those legislative and/or regulatory matters which may affect the hot rod industry, and provides a forum- through participation in Hot Rod Alley, a special SEMA Show section-through which member companies can take advantage of new business and marketing opportunities.
