Select Committee Nominations for SEMA Councils and Networks are now open at The Select Committees serve within the council or network leadership and play a vital role in strategically aligning council initiatives with current member and industry needs.  

Comprised of automotive aftermarket professionals who are passionate about the advancement of the industry, select committee volunteers work alongside industry professionals from different market segments to provide valuable programs, events, education opportunities and other resources for the council or network membership.

“The SEMA Council and Network program is dependent on volunteer select committee members to represent their respective market and professional niches,” said Nathan Ridnouer, SEMA vice president of councils and membership. “It is through their knowledge and expertise that we are able to develop valuable and relevant new programs that truly help the industry and our members’ businesses.”

Nomination criteria include being employed by a current SEMA member company, being a current member of the council or network that the nominee would represent, and a dedicated commitment to serving a two-year minimum term.

While councils work to identify related business goals, issues and challenges for member companies in a particular market segment, networks are a platform for individuals within a SEMA-member company who share a common interest or characteristic.

If you would like to nominate yourself or someone who has the skills and character to influence industry progress, fill out the online council’s nomination form. Nominations must be received by midnight April 6, 2020. The select committee elections will take place in late April.
