SEMA Member News—May/June 2012
2012 SEMA Membership Directory Printed and Online
Information and resources are at your fingertips at www.SEMA.org.
The May issue of SEMA News magazine doubles as the annual SEMA Membership Directory, and SEMA encourages you to keep this copy on your desk throughout the year to use as your reference tool in locating SEMA-member companies.
The membership directory is also available online. The online membership directory is continually updated to include new SEMA members. In addition, the online version of the membership directory lists members’ staff personnel, and you can contact them via e-mail through your MySEMA account. For those who prefer a hard copy, the membership directory can be downloaded as a PDF file.
If you don’t already have a MySEMA account, it’s no problem. If your company is a SEMA member, just ask your company’s SEMA contact to add you to your company’s profile. The person(s) listed under “Company Contact” on the bottom right of your company’s online directory listing has the ability to add employees to your company’s record.
It’s important to register through your Company Contact to ensure that you are tied to your company’s record and will have free access to benefits such as research reports and webinar downloads. You will use your company e-mail address to access your MySEMA account.
If your company is not a SEMA member, you can still register for a MySEMA account by logging into my.SEMA.org/login and clicking on “Register Now.” While you won’t have access to free SEMA membership benefits, you will be able to access resources such as research reports and webinar downloads for a fee.
