It is said that Mark Twain is responsible for suggesting that one should “never discuss politics or religion in polite company.” If Mr. Twain were alive today, he would know that avoiding politics is next to impossible, especially if you are a SEMA member.
While politics may be a four-letter word in many households, the reality is that our industry’s future is at stake. Think that’s an exaggeration? Think again.
Our country has just been through a tumultuous election and soon, the politicians in Washington will decide the future of our industry.
EPA emissions compliance, zero-emissions vehicle mandates, vehicle data access and off-roading are all on the agenda. It’s essential that SEMA have a voice in each of these fights.
Here’s what SEMA members can do to help.
Take a minute out of your day to login to the all-new www.sema.org and become SEMA PAC prior approved.
By law, SEMA may not use association funds to contribute to federal candidates. However, SEMA PAC allows the administrative and executive employees of SEMA-member companies to contribute their personal funds to help elect lawmakers who support our industry’s positions and initiatives.
Government rules require SEMA PAC to get each member company’s permission before it can ask their employees for support. That’s where you come in. It’s an easy process known as becoming prior approved, and it only takes seconds. To make things even easier for you, when you login, the form is partially filled out for you. Becoming prior approved never obligates you or your employees to contribute, but gives SEMA PAC permission to provide more information on its activities and to share strategies for strengthening the industry’s voice in Washington. Best of all, when you sign up, you’ll be among the first to receive the all-new SEMA PAC newsletter, which will launch later this spring.
So, what are you waiting for? Become SEMA PAC prior approved today!
