SEMA Member Appointed to Board of California Small Business Association

Ernie Silvers, CEO/president of SEMA member Egge Machine Co. Inc., has joined the board of the California Small Business Association (CSBA). As a new board member, Silvers will play a vital role in representing the needs of CSBA members and the millions of small businesses throughout California. Established in 1915 and located in Santa Fe Springs, California, Egge is a third-generation family business. Silvers joined the company in August 1995 as sales manager and became Egge’s first non-family member CEO/president in 2005. In addition to his work with CSBA, Silvers has served in various leadership positions with SEMA and is currently a board member on the SEMA Political Action Committee (PAC).

CSBA’s board of directors develop and guide CSBA’s policy positions, annual events and advocacy efforts on behalf of California small business owners. Board members play an integral role in advocating for small businesses before state and federal policy makers. The CSBA Board also helps deliver the annual California Small Business Day event, which honors small-business owners from legislative districts across the state and includes speeches from key elected officials in California.
