Protecting Your Freedom to Customize

The SEMA Individual Membership is for the car lover, the overlander, the restorer, the adrenaline junky, the gearhead, the cars and coffee aficionado and even the weekend warrior… and every other kind of car and truck enthusiast.

The freedom to customize your car or truck is in jeopardy.

Your support will help us defend your automotive rights whenever they are under attack! EPA overreach, electric-vehicle mandates, banning off-roading and your right to modify your vehicle are all on the agenda. It’s essential that you have a voice in each of these fights.

Here are just a few examples of your automotive rights being threatened:

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any further inquiries, please contact us at IndividualMember@sema.org

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) was created to represent its “business members” or the manufacturers, retailers, installers, media and many other professionals who make up the aftermarket industry. The association will continue to develop benefits for the business members that drive the association's mission to help the industry succeed and prosper. For SEMA Individual Members, the association has created this new member designation for consumers, enthusiasts and others who have a strong passion for customizing their vehicles. Through this membership, individuals will be able to support the association’s local, state and federal legislative and regulatory efforts and ensure the future of the hobby. While SEMA Individual Members will not have access to all of the same benefits made available to the business members, they will be able to donate to the SEMA PAC, which is critical to ensuring the voice of the enthusiast is heard when we fight for your automotive freedoms.

The annual SEMA Show is for trade only. A limited number of “Friday Experience” passes are available that grant access to a consumer or enthusiast to the trade show on Friday, the SEMA Cruise and SEMA Ignited. Please visit www.SEMAignited.com for more details and tickets.

Each dues-paying member will receive a welcome letter from the SEMA CEO, Membership Card, SEMA decal and exclusive hat so you can proudly share your support for your automotive rights. Additionally, only SEMA members are eligible to donate to the SEMA PAC and help fight legislation and regulations that are harmful to the hobby.

No. By law, only SEMA business and individual members are eligible to donate to the SEMA PAC.

Standard USPS shipping and handling will require 2–4 weeks for the new member packets. Although, we do expect for that time period to be shorter.

We want to hear from you! Please email SEMA at IndividualMember@sema.org.

Email IndividualMember@sema.org for all inquiries.

PRI, or Performance Racing Industry, is a wholly owned subsidiary of SEMA that is focused primarily on the motorsports segment. SEMA and PRI are launching very similar initiatives that both target individual consumers and enthusiasts to join their respective associations.

The goal of both is to build an army of grassroots supporters who can join the fight against legislation and regulations that stand to negatively impact the automotive aftermarket and motorsports. We encourage active gearheads to join one or both so that your voice is heard. For more information on each, please visit SEMA’s Individual Membership at www.SEMA.org/IndividualMember and PRI’s Individual Membership at www.performanceracing.com/membership/individual.

SEMA will not be offering merchandise for sale at this time; however, the association is looking at creating more opportunities for enthusiasts to demonstrate support through your apparel.
