Dear SEMA Members,
My name is Chris Thomson, and I am asking to serve you as a member of the SEMA Board of Directors.
As a true automotive enthusiast, I have been fortunate to make a career out of something I am truly passionate about. I am currently the vice president of sales and marketing for Superlift Suspension Systems. I began my career with Superlift nearly 20 years ago and have had an active role in growing a small company into a large one.
I am honored that I have been nominated to serve SEMA members on the SEMA Board of Directors. Having served three terms on the Board in the past, I am fully aware of the responsibility that comes with this position and feel that I am qualified and looking forward to making a difference now and in the future.
I count it an honor and a privilege to have been nominated for this SEMA Board position. I look forward to serving in any capacity where my time, talents and 36 years of industry experience can be of use.
I am asking for your vote to be re-elected to the SEMA Board of Directors to help see through some of the initiatives that were started during my first term. Several of these, such as the Data Pool and SEMA Education Institute, will directly affect the rep and the companies they sell to and work for.
In its daily efforts to promote and protect the auto hobby, SEMA continues to partner with state lawmakers from across the country through the State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus.
For most members of the Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO), business slows somewhat at the end of the year, allowing us time to catch up on various projects and plan for the upcoming New Year.
The SEMA Hall of Fame Award has been established to honor outstanding persons in the automotive specialty industry whose creativity, dignity, integrity, industriousness, and accomplishments, on a national basis, have enhanced the stature of, and significantly contributed to, the industry's growth.
As a trade association, SEMA is lead by a volunteer Board of Directors. The individuals serving on the board are doing more than just “getting involved” and leading the association. They are serving the industry and all of the businesses within it. They are providing direction and playing a critical role in shaping the future of the automotive specialty-equipment market.
