In addition to serving as a showcase for the style, products and innovation of the specialty-equipment industry, the annual SEMA Show also serves as the backdrop for SEMA council and committee special events, membership meetings, seminars and more. Check out the photo galleries below—posted on Facebook—of several of SEMA council and committee members in action during the 2012 SEMA Show.
Several of SEMA's council and committees hold meetings, receptions, seminars and special events in conjunction with the annual SEMA Show. Photo galleries are currently available on Facebook covering the special events and meetings for SEMA's Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA), Manufacturers Representative Network (MRN) committee, Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) and SEMA Businesswomen's Network (SBN).
