Give Congress a Piece of Your Mind at the 2016 SEMA Washington Rally

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

  SEMA Washington Rally
Participate in the SEMA Washington Rally and take advantage of the  opportunity to connect with legislators on Capitol Hill, and let them know what matters most to you and your business.
   

There is a saying in Washington, D.C., “If you aren’t at the table, then you’re on the menu.” Claim your seat at the table by joining fellow SEMA members in the nation’s capital on May 11, 2016, to show Congress the strength of the $36-billion specialty-equipment industry.

Don’t think you can have an impact on the political process? Think again. After much hard work by SEMA and its members, a bill was signed into law allowing low-volume car manufacturers to offer a wide range of turn-key replica vehicles to their customers. However, there’s still much work to be done. Pursuing a pro-growth manufacturing and job-creation agenda, creating access to small-business loans and credit, identifying affordable health insurance options, countering burdensome regulations, preventing higher ethanol content in gasoline, and fighting counterfeit products. These are just a few of the issues facing SEMA members during this critical election year.

Take advantage of this one-of-a-kind opportunity to connect face-to-face with your legislators on Capitol Hill and let them know what matters most to you and your business. The SEMA Washington Rally is exclusively for SEMA members.

Scheduled events include:

  • Legislative briefing session with SEMA staff
  • One-on-one meetings with your congressional legislators and their staff
  • Exclusive Capitol Hill luncheon with special invited guests
  • Private reception and dinner with high-profile lawmakers
  • Opportunities to visit attractions in the nation’s capital
