Important Issues to our industry:
1. Member Satisfaction - Ensure each member can participate in relevant programs, research and networking opportunities. SEMA is a great resource for our businesses to learn from, grow with and be promoted by.
2. Consumer Awareness and Industry Growth – The aftermarket has a larger consumer reach with the internet. We must continue to identify new technology and buying trends.
3. The SEMA Show Future – Needs to continue changing with industry trends while understanding the financial impact to the association.
4. Legislation Activity – Protect industry interests by activating the power of the association’s membership at a local, state and federal level.
