Making Congress Aware
ARMO Member Updates
ARMO has used the Take a Kid to a Car Show program for over 15 years as a tool to get young children hooked on the car hobby. Similarly, the HRIA has their Futures in Hot Rodding campaign that promotes careers and student resources to high school and college students.
ARMO initiated the Take a Kid to a Car Show awareness campaign way back in 2002. It has morphed through several different logos, looks and activation strategies since then.
If you’re thinking about opening your own shop, or wondering what kind of business challenges a builder might face while restoring YOUR classic, be sure to attend the Restoration Builders Panel by ARMO. This year’s panel represents a good cross section of shops relative to size, sales and history.
ARMO General Membership Meeting
The Automotive Restoration Market Organization is holding a general membership meeting at the 2018 SEMA Show. All ARMO members at the show are encouraged to attend the meeting to learn about the latest council initiatives and discuss industry specific ideas and concerns.

We have been living in a digital world for a while now and things like standardized product data, a solid web presence, and engaging social media are becoming more and more important in everyday business operations.
Your ARMO Select Committee will be meeting in late August for their Long-Range Strategy Planning. Some of the topics covered will be Youth Engagement, Legislation, and other topics related to the Restoration Industry. This meeting will be closed to only ARMO leadership and will inform its members of any open meetings that may be coming up.
Social Media has been a growing trend over the last decade. It has created a generation of people who are more connected with each other than ever before. For ARMO, we believe in using these platforms to reach a wider audience and to connect with more people. Facebook has been a great tool for many organizations and businesses to grow.
The SEMA Show is less than three months away. Be sure to plug all of the ARMO events into your SEMA Show Activities calendar now.
Here is a short list of what we have coming up and we hope to see you there!
