The SEMA Action Network (SAN) announced July 10, 2015 as “Collector Car Appreciation Day.” The date marks the sixth commemoration in what has become an annual event to raise awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. The SAN is again working to secure a congressional resolution to recognize the day’s significance.
The annual SEMA Installation Gala Fundraiser serves as the venue where we thank our association's outgoing board members and welcome those who have been newly elected. It is also the setting in which we announce the newest selections for the SEMA Hall of Fame whose inductees represent not only our industry's history but also its members' dedication, service and devotion to their businesses.
Here are the SEMA Council & Network awards presented at the 2014 SEMA Show.
The Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) hosted its annual long-range planning meeting this past summer at the SEMA Garage Industry Innovations Center in Diamond Bar, California. The meeting was scheduled to coincide with the SEMA Garage open house and the annual Installation Gala, and members of the PRO select committee and a number of at-large members met and discussed issues, challenges and opportunities affecting restylers and accessory manufacturers.
We have a great reason for you to get up bright and early on Friday of the SEMA Show.
Please join us at the PRO Industry Awards Reception, taking place during this year’s SEMA Show.
In addition to the SEMA Show events that have become traditions for PRO members over the years, 2014 will bring a new draw to members.
For members who have joined the council recently, or who just want to stay in the know, a general membership meeting on Thursday, November 6 will give another chance to connect over breakfast.
