New Council and Network Select Committee Members Announced

By Ashley Reyes

Representing SEMA and serving as leaders for the automotive aftermarket industry, the results for newly elected Council and Network Select Committee members have been announced.

Comprised of automotive aftermarket professionals who are passionate about the advancement of the industry, select committee volunteers work alongside industry professionals from different market segments to provide valuable programs, events, education opportunities and other resources for the council or network membership. While councils work to identify related business goals, issues and challenges for member companies in a particular market segment, networks are a platform for individuals within a SEMA-member company who share a common interest or characteristic.

Newly elected members who will serve a 2021–2023 term are listed below.
