SEMA has announced the results of the 2011 Council Elections. Through the efforts of each candidate, the association is able to deliver a wide variety of new programs and benefits to the various niche market segments.

The SEMA council program was developed to allow these market niches to identify their unique challenges and opportunities and to better utilize the association’s resources.

Each SEMA council represents a group of SEMA members that share a common business purpose or market segment. The group should be able to identify common business goals, issues and challenges that require a special focus by the association.
