Each year, SEMA produces a tremendous amount of educational content through its webinar series, SEMA Show seminars and regional conferences. We record much of this content, allowing members to access it online anytime after the event. With a computer and (preferably) broadband connection, you'll have access to sessions covering industry issues such as making the most of your online marketing, MAP policies and intellectual property rights.
SEMA has revised, updated and formatted for online usage its guide to emissions certification of specialty automotive aftermarket parts. Known as the “Black Book” and available only to SEMA members, the guide is now simplified in many areas to facilitate achieving emissions compliance status with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
