Nominations for SEMA’s Council and Network Awards are being accepted now through August 22. The awards, which will be presented during the 2014 SEMA Show, honor the individuals, companies and products that have proven themselves leaders in their business segments. Any employee of a council-member company and all network members are encouraged to submit nominations to honor and recognize outstanding contributions to the industry.

“One of the greatest benefits that our councils and networks offer is the ability to recognize peers for their contributions to SEMA and the industry,” said Nathan Ridnouer, SEMA’s vice president of councils and membership. “We do this each year on the big stage at each of the networking receptions in Las Vegas during SEMA Show week. This is the members’ opportunity to reflect back on the past year and nominate the individual who epitomizes leadership and who gave back to their industry segment.”

Individuals eligible to nominate will receive an email invitation for each of the councils and networks to which they belong. For a complete list of awards, along with the criteria and nomination forms for each, visit
