Washington, D.C. (March 8, 2011) - Along with defending the rights of hobbyists across the United States and Canada, the SAN is now making dreams come true with a chance to attend the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Known as the SAN Challenge, SAN members will have the opportunity to compete for the grand prize, two entry passes to the Show, lodging and airfare to Las Vegas for this otherwise industry-only event.
The SEMA Action Network (SAN),
a nationwide partnership of individuals, car clubs and members of the
specialty auto parts industry, continues to work toward eliminating
legislative threats and promoting favorable laws for the automotive
hobby. To further develop this important enthusiast network, the SAN
recently kicked-off a contest to expand its reach by challenging
current SAN members to recruit new members.
Legislators around the country have been busy over the past month and,
consequently, so has SEMA’s government affairs office. Association
staff has plowed through thousands of bills and identified hundreds
that may be of interest to member companies. The most pressing of these
bills result in Action Alerts being shot out to members and highlighted
in SEMA News and the SEMA Action Network’s (SAN) monthly publication, Driving Force.
Publisher of Hot Rod and more than 50 other auto enthusiast magazines is using its newsstand reach to raise awareness of legislation that affects all car, truck, motorcycle and racing enthusiasts.
