Here are the SEMA Council & Network awards presented at the 2014 SEMA Show.
For members of the Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO), the council-specific SEMA Show offerings are primarily about building community. The council offers many such options each year, and 2014 will be no different. Here are a few items for members to mark on their SEMA Show schedules.
We have a great reason for you to get up bright and early on Friday of the SEMA Show.
ARMO will conduct a general membership meeting, open to all ARMO members.
One of the primary benefits of an ARMO membership is access to peers, and the Builder’s Roundtable is one of the best ways you can stay informed about the issues facing your industry.
ARMO kicks off a week of council activities with its annual Industry Awards Reception on Tuesday, November 3 from 5:15 pm to 7:30 pm in the Westgate Conference Rooms 7-14 (past the manufacturer booths, and up the stairs).
Each year, manufacturer members of the Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO) submit products to the Hot Product Showcase in order to gain exposure for their businesses. This year marked the 17th annual event at Spring Carlisle, one of the world’s largest gatherings of automotive restoration enthusiasts. The 2014 event was held April 23–26 and boasted more than 60 products from 24 ARMO-member companies.
The SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) has recruited three new staff members to fill critical roles as the organization grows. The focus for these new hires includes systems development, member recruitment and product data services.
The Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO) will install new leadership following its most recent election cycle. Dennis Roberts, vice president of Distinctive Industries, will take over the chair position, and Erika Wiesman, the owner of Hydro-E-Lectric Inc., was selected as chair-elect. They laid out their backgrounds and plans in recent interviews with SEMA Member News.
Roberts has been involved in the restoration industry for more than 30 years after having been introduced to musclecars in 1970 through a ’70 Trans Am owned by a friend of his older sister. He bought a ’67 GTO as his first car in 1974 at the height of the gas shortage and became a hands-on restoration enthusiast for life.
Leaders and volunteers from the automotive accessories industry will be honored during the annual SEMA Installation Gala, Friday, July 18, at the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center in Pomona, California.
