SEMA Action Network (SAN)
Great strength comes with great numbers. Although thousands are already doing their part to heed the call, the SEMA Action Network (SAN) is once again enlisting SEMA Show attendees to join the cause.
The SAN’s mission to keep SEMA-member businesses free from unnecessarily burdensome laws and regulations remains critical. Founded in 1997, this growing alliance is comprised of U.S. and Canadian forces from the industry and hobby united to advance automotive freedoms.
Automotive media personality and SAN member Courtney Hansen will be returning this year to sign limited-edition posters at the SAN display (booth #61399 outside Central Hall) alongside Hot Rod magazine’s “Bubbletop,” a restomod-styled ’61 Bel Air. Hansen will be at the SAN booth Tuesday, November 5, from 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. and Thursday, November 7, from 1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m.

SEMA Political Action Committee
For more than a decade, SEMA’s Political Action Committee (SEMA PAC) has been fighting for SEMA members and their businesses in the nation’s capital by supporting car guys and gals in Congress who have the industry’s back.
While you are at the SEMA Show, be sure to stop by the SEMA PAC booth (N251) in the Members Lounge to learn how easy it is to add your voice to the cause by becoming “PAC Approved.” It takes less than a minute to sign up, and there is never an obligation to contribute. If you are already SEMA PAC Approved, cruise by and help celebrate a decade of protecting the industry by joining the “$10 for 10” campaign.
When you do, you will receive a limited-edition anniversary lapel pin that you can wear with pride all week.
