Nominations for the 2020 SEMA Hall of Fame are now being accepted. SEMA members have the opportunity to recognize and honor a member of the automotive industry whose leadership and dedication have helped to build the current $44.6 billion specialty-automotive market.  

Members can submit their nominations up until the deadline, March 16.

To help the Hall of Fame Nomination Committee choose the most deserving nominees, the association requests that members provide a brief statement that explains why the individual deserves the prestigious honor.

Previous accomplishments, industry contributions and community involvement are all examples of background information that contribute to the committee's final decisions. 

The SEMA Hall of Fame was created in 1969 and is the association’s highest recognition, established to honor outstanding persons in the automotive specialty-equipment industry whose creativity, dignity, industriousness and accomplishments have enhanced the stature of, and significantly contributed to, the industry’s growth.

The 2019 SEMA Hall of Fame inductees were Bob Chandler, Bruce Crower and Marla Moore (featured on the 2019 August cover of SEMA News magazine to the right).
